The Pleasure of Comfort May 16, 2015 21:00

When we are attuned to the design aesthetic of relaxed luxury, having the taste for the finer things in life, we may refine our choices, reflecting on the importance of comfort as one of our main influences. According to Coco Chanel "luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury. And according to one of the dictionary definitions of luxury, it is "a pleasure out of the ordinary allowed to oneself".

The pleasure of comfort was considered an extraordinary indulgence and a pioneering idea not so long ago. One of the undercurrents for equality, the awareness of comfort as the state of being, to which we are entitled to, appeared on the horizon of the corset-clad history only at the turn of the nineteenth century.

A natural impulse of being comfortable in our bodies is intimately intertwined with the desire to be comfortable in our mind and our heart. The desire to be comfortable in our skin inspires us to discover our natural state and who we genuinely are. It strengthens our core. It encourages us to leap outside the box and spread our wings.

Intuitively, it guides us to relax into our own personal bliss and the absolute truth of our authentic Selves. When we experience the sensory or the spiritual pleasure of the inner comfort, we are sunlit by our own magnificence. Unrestricted, liberated and free, we step comfortably into our own Limelight.
