The chalet style, which took shape a couple of centuries ago at the junction of the Swiss and French Alps, still retains its popularity today, successfully competing with many younger and more sophisticated styles. The reason for this success is simple - the style offers the unhurried, traditional comfort that is so much appreciated today. Therefore, the simple and romantic design of the living room in the chalet style is increasingly appearing in modern interiors.

Shepherd's and hunting lodges, which became the founders of the style, were built in the mountains and served as a temporary shelter from bad weather. They were built from the material that was in abundance in the vicinity - from stone and wood. The interior design was extremely unpretentious, the room was filled with everyday objects, no one even thought about decorating the home.
