We have all heard and seen the merits of the straight line, it can be very dramatic and understated at the same time.Tema furniture from Portugal has been creating simple yet stunning looks for the minimalist since 1981. The Tokyo collection from Tema definitely makes the best of its Asian influence and an absence of curves. I particularly like the backless modular wall shelfs that can be adapted for Television, sound equipment, and storage based on the consumers needs. The Tokyo series is available in several finishes to suit any modern decor and offers occasional tables as the perfect compliment to the wall units. Tema has several other lines that include dining, bedrooms, and audio visual for a complete look.
