What Houzz contributors are saying:

A small fireplace turns the living room into a cozy and comfortable hangout spot during the winter. During the summer, the doors in this room slide completely open.Chandelier: Flos Sarfatti Suspension Lamp; lighting: Kenneth Brian Vick, Lightopia
Elements of Style added this to Live in Harmony: 3 Types of Balance in Design
Asymmetrical Asymmetrical balance makes for a more relaxed and lively interior space. This balance scheme uses a central line but relies more on the eye's sense of balance to complete the design. Rather than having identical objects on either side of the central axis, asymmetrically balanced spaces have different objects of equal visual weight on either side of the line. In this living room, the left side of the fireplace serves as the central line. The height and weight of the sofa and cushions on the right balance the console on the left. The height of the fireplace surround also balances out the tall bookshelves.

This room includes informal balance. Informal balance is when different but equivalent objects are arranged to the sides of a center point. In this photo the center object is the fireplace. The room includes different objects on each side that weigh each other out in the end creating the asymmetrical balance we see.
iversabi001 added this to Abby Iverson elements and principles of design book
February 25, 2015
Asymmetrical, this room is an example of asymmetrical balance because the objects and furniture are different shapes and sizes. This helps prevent the room from getting boring to people.
