Out of Proportion
Architects and interior designers follow certain rules with regards to proportions.
Those rules aim at achieving a natural flow, which is easy on the eye, and a good functionality.
By manipulating proportions, the interior designer is creating a WOW factor.
The object is typically from our day to day lives, however, once out of proportion, it looks funny, attractive, and unique.
It is a simple, but a very effective, trick to make an impact.
