|English term or phrase: Club room|
|"I wanted to create a sophisticated club room in this family room."|
J'ai trouvé "salle de club" ou "salle de réunion", mais ça ne correspond pas du tout au contexte. Ici, un décorateur décide de créer un style "club room" dans une pièce à vivre. Quelqu'un peut m'aider ? Merci !
Il désirait aménager/décorer la salle de séjour dans le style club. On parle de "style club" dans le milieu de la décoration intérieure. Plus couramment, on parle de fauteuils ou de canapés club (en cuir
dans le style original anglais). La Britannica retourne l'article suivant dans une recherche à partir de "club style": "Upholstery and covers are used on furniture designed for sitting or lying on. From the East, Europeans learned the use of wickerwork, which provided a ventilated and resilient background for loose cushions. The upholstered chair is a genuinely European phenomenon that achieved its most distinguished and logical form in England during the 18th century. Poor heating systems in houses, general prosperity, and a desire for comfort were the conditions that gave rise to a number of imaginatively varied types of upholstered armchairs in which the only wood visible is in the legs, with the back closing right up against the sitter and side wings affording protection from inevitable drafts.
The upholstered chair created a new effect that depended almost entirely upon the craftsmanship of the upholsterer. The upholstered chair or sofa has remained a specialty of the Anglo-Saxon world; club life in particular contributed to its popularity and resulted in heavily stuffed forms including that of the so-called chesterfield.
By mid-20th century, new materials such as foam rubber and various types of plastic composition had inspired independent methods that dispensed entirely with traditional upholstery techniques. Upholstery was succeeded by molded plastic forms and by sacks filled with plastic balls that are able to conform to the changing positions of the body." Voir également la référence ci-dessous.
