10 Clever Ways to Style Dead Corners

A place where two sides or edges meet, by definition a corner is an area that’s secluded and feels remote. But it doesn’t have to be. In our homes and living areas especially, corners need not be left bare and empty and, indeed, they shouldn’t be – these dead zones tend to suck the energy out of a room. Take some inspiration from these skilfully styled corners and create a refreshed and purposeful nook that adds colour, life and functionality to your living room.

1. Introduce a statement chair
Most corners work well with a chair and in the living room an extra seat or two always comes in handy. Choose an armchair that will make a statement and tie in with the rest of your decor. Pick a bold colour or a material that contrasts with your sofa such as leather, velvet or patterned fabric.

Just be sure the style and shape fits well in the space – I like to tape out the floor area to help me visualise the space that a piece of furniture will take up. Consider its height too, and whether you want it to be a solid form, or perhaps allow some light through a rattan, woven or wire chair.

2. Try the artwork lean
If you have a fireplace, mantle, bench seat or console in a corner, experiment with the artwork lean. A great trick for renters (no nails in the walls) is an oversized artwork or canvas print that will help fill the void that the joining of walls create.

Play with scale and proportion and think about how large you will need the artwork to be to create balance in the room. In this example, the fireplace has been used as a benchmark for the size of the artwork. Anything smaller would have looked out of place.

3. Maximise space
Corners can end up as voids and dead zones, so make sure you are creating a functional space here, especially if you’re living in a small apartment. A recessed wall has been put to good use in this corner, with overhead open shelves and a petite chair. A great spot for guitar practise!

4. Occupy the corner with a modular sofa
L-shaped or modular-style sofas are useful in living areas, especially when there are awkward corners with which to contend. Most furniture stores selling modular sofas allow you to choose their orientation, and many sofas can be customised to fit your exact layout.

Modular sofas are the preferred choice for many people because they can make the best use of a space. Just make sure the sectionals can fit through all your doors, and up any stairs as they tend to be quite blocky and bulky (even when they are taken apart).

5. Bring in some tall greenery
If you have windows forming a corner in your living room and you don’t want to block the light or limit the view, why not try a lush, tall plant? The greenery helps create softness without it being a completely solid element that will appear too heavy. The plant will love the natural light and it is a great option for apartment dwellers or if you don’t have a backyard – bring the outdoors in.

6. Tailor-make the corner with custom joinery
An investment yes, but creating custom joinery in a corner space, or where the walls end and windows begin, allows for a fabulously functional solution in an otherwise tricky area. By using the vertical space you add extra storage, and you can decide to have open shelving to hide your things away in cupboards, or have a combination of both.

How bespoke furniture can solve your design problems

A bookcase or shelving unit can be tucked away in a corner and serve a purpose, and it’s completely okay for it to be partially hidden by your sofa and lamp. Display your favourite books or keepsakes and enjoy a cosy little reading nook that would otherwise have been a blank space.

7. Lay back on a transitional lounge
Another great multi-purpose piece is a chaise or daybed. Not quite a statement armchair, not quite a sofa (they are a little larger than an armchair, and not as large as a lounge), these corner solvers work wonderfully in wall junctions.

Tip: Build in some breathing space by positioning a transitional lounge out a little from walls and windowsills. You can also anchor another furniture piece off one of these seating options, such as a console or sideboard – just leave some air between them.

Add a side table and lamp and stretch out. The ideal addition to a corner with windows, a daybed makes for a cosy little area for reading and relaxing.

Make home a little more serene

8. Insert a floor lamp
Floor lamps are great because they provide that task or mood lighting you need in a living space and don’t take up much room. Plugged into the corner, a floor lamp can reach over your sofa to help the living area feel more like its own zone – be a more upstanding or a semi-transparent shade that creates a soft glow and ambience, the options are endless.

A floor lamp can be tucked into the smallest of spaces. Just be wary of the shade height and position, so you don’t bang your head every time you get up or sit down.

9. Add a coat stand
Playing with various heights in a room adds interest – if everything is all at the same level, it can get boring. A jacket/coat stand adds both height and function in a corner. Obviously it needs to make sense with your home’s layout (if the living room adjoins the entrance, doorway or hallway, for example) but putting one in a corner can be a practical move – they won’t get in the way as easily here, or get easily knocked over.

10. Create your own corner
If you have a challenging floor plan with limited walls against which you can place furniture, or a window you want to keep clear, why not consider creating a corner? In this living room, a sofa has been positioned where the wall ends, creating extra seating yet still allowing easy access through to the next room.

Edited by Lawrence Kumpf with Joe Bucciero and Mark Harwood. Contributors include Henning Christiansen, Thomas Groetz, Diedrich Diederichsen, Dick Higgins, Lars Morell, Per Kirkeby, Bjørn Nørgaard, Helmer Nørgaard, Thorbjørn Reuter Christiansen, Anton Lukoszevieze, Hans-Jørgen Nielsen, Michael Glasmeier, Ute Wassermann, Stíne Janvin Motland, Mark Harwood, Lucy Railton, Graham Lambkin, Áine O’Dwyer, Lia Mazzari, Ursula Reuter Christiansen, Francesco Conz, and Emily Harvey.

The third issue of Blank Forms’ journal is released in conjunction with Freedom is Around the Corner, a retrospective exhibition and performance series devoted to the work of pioneering Danish composer and artist Henning Christiansen (1932–2008).

Perhaps best known for his collaborations and artistic affinities with notable artists such as Joseph Beuys and Fluxus members like Nam June Paik and Dick Higgins, Christiansen, who worked primarily on the remote Danish island of Møn, moved beyond his Fluxus roots to create a vast, often ineffable body of work that spanned music, performance, film, and visual art over the course of a fifty-year career. Yet Christiansen’s work has remained under the radar, even in the ten years following his death: only a few of his recordings were available until recently, and his prolific compositional and visual outputs have rarely been performed or exhibited in the United States. Freedom is Around the Corner—the exhibition, the performance series, and the journal—seeks to present Christiansen’s life and work in a holistic manner that befits his dynamic practice.

Like previous issues of the Blank Forms journal, Freedom is Around the Corner collects a combination of newly discovered, never-before published, and newly translated materials; in this case, many of the materials were found in the Henning Christiansen Archive during the exhibition’s curatorial process. The issue begins with the first of four newly translated interviews with Christiansen himself, conducted circa 2006 by the German writer Thomas Groetz. Two others, conducted by Francesco Conz and Michael Glasmeier in the 1990s, come later in the issue; together these three interviews, which had only existed as audio recordings before, offer a well-rounded picture of the late-career Christiansen through his own, good-humored lens.

The fourth interview, a more experimental text conducted by Helmer Nørgaard, was originally published in Danish in the magazine DMT, in a 1986/87 issue devoted to Christiansen. In this issue we’ve created a translated facsimile of that DMT issue, which also featured texts on Christiansen by his prominent Danish collaborators, the writer Lars Morell and the artists Per Kirkeby and Bjørn Nørgaard. We hear from other Christiansen collaborators through correspondence—including in transcribed letters from Emily Harvey and Dick Higgins, whose messages to and from Christiansen were recently discovered in the Archive—and through interviews, including newly conducted interviews with his wife and longtime collaborator, Ursula Reuter Christiansen; Bjorn Nørgaard, who spoke with Christiansen’s son Thorbjørn Reuter Christiansen; and later musical collaborators Werner Durand and Ute Wassermann.

Except Nørgaard, these collaborators will all speak or perform as part of the Freedom is Around the Corner programming; a section of this issue features many of the other performers as well, younger artists who have grappled with Christiansen’s legacy. Represented through interviews (Lucy Railton), original artworks (Graham Lambkin, Áine O’Dwyer, Stíne Janvin), and essays (Mark Harwood, Anton Lukoszevieze of Apartment House), these artists demonstrate the lasting and diverse impact of Christiansen’s work on today’s musical landscape. Lukoszevieze’s essay introduces a newly translated libretto for Dejligt vejr i dag, n’est-ce pas, Ibsen, a 1964 opera with music by Christiansen and libretto by Hans-Jørgen Nielsen which Apartment House, commissioned by Blank Forms, will perform twice during the run of the exhibition.

A. A. Milne

British author (1882–1956)

Alan Alexander Milne (; 18 January 1882 – 31 January 1956) was an English author, best known for his books about the teddy bear Winnie-the-Pooh and for various poems. Milne was a noted writer, primarily as a playwright, before the huge success of Pooh overshadowed all his previous work. Milne served in both World Wars, joining the British Army in World War I, and as a captain of the British Home Guard in World War II.[1]

He was the father of bookseller Christopher Robin Milne, upon whom the character Christopher Robin is based.


Alan Alexander Milne was born in Kilburn, London[2] to parents John Vine Milne, who was born in England,[3] and Sarah Marie Milne (née Heginbotham). He grew up at Henley House School, 6/7 Mortimer Road (now Crescent), Kilburn, a small independent school run by his father.[4] One of his teachers was H. G. Wells, who taught there in 1889–90.[5] Milne attended Westminster School and Trinity College, Cambridge[6] where he studied on a mathematics scholarship, graduating with a B.A. in Mathematics in 1903. He edited and wrote for Granta, a student magazine.[4] He collaborated with his brother Kenneth and their articles appeared over the initials AKM. Milne's work came to the attention of the leading British humour magazine Punch, where Milne was to become a contributor and later an assistant editor. Considered a talented cricket fielder, Milne played for two amateur teams that were largely composed of British writers: the Allahakbarries and the Authors XI. His teammates included fellow writers J. M. Barrie, Arthur Conan Doyle and P. G. Wodehouse.[7][8]

Milne joined the British Army in World War I and served as an officer in the Royal Warwickshire Regiment and later, after a debilitating illness, the Royal Corps of Signals. He was commissioned into the 4th Battalion, Royal Warwickshire Regiment on 1 February 1915 as a second lieutenant (on probation).[9] His commission was confirmed on 20 December 1915.[10] On 7 July 1916, he was injured in the Battle of the Somme and invalided back to England. Having recuperated, he was recruited into Military Intelligence to write propaganda articles for MI7 (b) between 1916 and 1918. He was discharged on 14 February 1919,[11] and settled in Mallord Street, Chelsea.[12] He relinquished his commission on 19 February 1920, retaining the rank of lieutenant.[13]

After the war, he wrote a denunciation of war titled Peace with Honour (1934), which he retracted somewhat with 1940's War with Honour.[4][14] During World War II, Milne was one of the most prominent critics of fellow English writer (and Authors XI cricket teammate) P. G. Wodehouse, who was captured at his country home in France by the Nazis and imprisoned for a year. Wodehouse made radio broadcasts about his internment, which were broadcast from Berlin. Although the light-hearted broadcasts made fun of the Germans, Milne accused Wodehouse of committing an act of near treason by cooperating with his country's enemy. Wodehouse got some revenge on his former friend (e.g. in The Mating Season) by creating fatuous parodies of the Christopher Robin poems in some of his later stories, and claiming that Milne "was probably jealous of all other writers.... But I loved his stuff."[15]

Milne married Dorothy "Daphne" de Sélincourt (1890–1971) in 1913 and their son Christopher Robin Milne was born in 1920. In 1925, Milne bought a country home, Cotchford Farm, in Hartfield, East Sussex.[16]

During World War II, Milne was a captain in the British Home Guard in Hartfield & Forest Row, insisting on being plain "Mr. Milne" to the members of his platoon. He retired to the farm after a stroke and brain surgery in 1952 left him an invalid, and by August 1953, "he seemed very old and disenchanted."[17] Milne died in January 1956, aged 74.[18]

Literary career[edit]

1903 to 1925[edit]

After graduating from Cambridge University in 1903, A. A. Milne contributed humorous verse and whimsical essays to Punch,[19][20] joining the staff in 1906 and becoming an assistant editor.[21]

During this period he published 18 plays and three novels, including the murder mystery The Red House Mystery (1922). His son was born in August 1920 and in 1924 Milne produced a collection of children's poems, When We Were Very Young, which were illustrated by Punch staff cartoonist E. H. Shepard. A collection of short stories for children A Gallery of Children, and other stories that became part of the Winnie-the-Pooh books, were first published in 1925.

Milne was an early screenwriter for the nascent British film industry, writing four stories filmed in 1920 for the company Minerva Films (founded in 1920 by the actor Leslie Howard and his friend and story editor Adrian Brunel). These were The Bump, starring Aubrey Smith; Twice Two; Five Pound Reward; and Bookworms.[22] Some of these films survive in the archives of the British Film Institute. Milne had met Howard when the actor starred in Milne's play Mr Pim Passes By in London.[23]

Looking back on this period (in 1926), Milne observed that when he told his agent that he was going to write a detective story, he was told that what the country wanted from a "Punch humorist" was a humorous story; when two years later he said he was writing nursery rhymes, his agent and publisher were convinced he should write another detective story; and after another two years, he was being told that writing a detective story would be in the worst of taste given the demand for children's books. He concluded that "the only excuse which I have yet discovered for writing anything is that I want to write it; and I should be as proud to be delivered of a Telephone Directory con amore as I should be ashamed to create a Blank Verse Tragedy at the bidding of others."[24]

1926 to 1928[edit]

Milne is most famous for his two Pooh books about a boy named Christopher Robin after his son, Christopher Robin Milne (1920–1996), and various characters inspired by his son's stuffed animals, most notably the bear named Winnie-the-Pooh.[25] Christopher Robin Milne's stuffed bear, originally named Edward,[26] was renamed Winnie after a Canadian black bear named Winnie (after Winnipeg), which was used as a military mascot in World War I, and left to London Zoo during the war. "The Pooh" comes from a swan the young Milne named "Pooh". E. H. Shepard illustrated the original Pooh books, using his own son's teddy Growler ("a magnificent bear") as the model. The rest of Christopher Robin Milne's toys, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo and Tigger, were incorporated into A. A. Milne's stories,[27][28] and two more characters – Rabbit and Owl – were created by Milne's imagination. Christopher Robin Milne's own toys are now on display in New York where 750,000 people visit them every year.

The actual stuffed toys owned by Christopher Robin Milne and featured in the Winnie-the-Poohstories. They are on display in the New York Public Library Main Branchin New York without Roo, who was lost when Christopher Robin was 9.

The fictional Hundred Acre Wood of the Pooh stories derives from Five Hundred Acre Wood in Ashdown Forest in East Sussex, South East England, where the Pooh stories were set. Milne lived on the northern edge of the forest at Cotchford Farm, 51°05′24″N0°06′25″E / 51.090°N 0.107°E / 51.090; 0.107, and took his son walking there. E. H. Shepard drew on the landscapes of Ashdown Forest as inspiration for many of the illustrations he provided for the Pooh books. The adult Christopher Robin commented: "Pooh's Forest and Ashdown Forest are identical."[27] Popular tourist locations at Ashdown Forest include: Galleon's Lap, The Enchanted Place, the Heffalump Trap and Lone Pine, Eeyore’s Sad and Gloomy Place, and the wooden Pooh Bridge where Pooh and Piglet invented Poohsticks.[29]

Not yet known as Pooh, he made his first appearance in a poem, "Teddy Bear", published in Punch magazine in February 1924 and republished in When We Were Very Young.[30] Pooh first appeared in the London Evening News on Christmas Eve, 1925, in a story called "The Wrong Sort of Bees".[28]Winnie-the-Pooh was published in 1926, followed by The House at Pooh Corner in 1928. A second collection of nursery rhymes, Now We Are Six, was published in 1927. All four books were illustrated by E. H. Shepard. Milne also published four plays in this period. He also "gallantly stepped forward" to contribute a quarter of the costs of dramatising P. G. Wodehouse's A Damsel in Distress.[31]The World of Pooh won the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award in 1958.[32]

1929 onwards[edit]

The success of his children's books was to become a source of considerable annoyance to Milne, whose self-avowed aim was to write whatever he pleased and who had, until then, found a ready audience for each change of direction: he had freed pre-war Punch from its ponderous facetiousness; he had made a considerable reputation as a playwright (like his idol J. M. Barrie) on both sides of the Atlantic; he had produced a witty piece of detective writing in The Red House Mystery (although this was severely criticised by Raymond Chandler for the implausibility of its plot in his essay The Simple Art of Murder in the eponymous collection that appeared in 1950). But once Milne had, in his own words, "said goodbye to all that in 70,000 words" (the approximate length of his four principal children's books), he had no intention of producing any reworkings lacking in originality, given that one of the sources of inspiration, his son, was growing older.

Another reason Milne stopped writing children's books, and especially about Winnie-the-Pooh, was that he felt "amazement and disgust" over the fame his son was exposed to, and said that "I feel that the legal Christopher Robin has already had more publicity than I want for him. I do not want CR Milne to ever wish that his name were Charles Robert."[33]

In his literary home, Punch, where the When We Were Very Young verses had first appeared, Methuen continued to publish whatever Milne wrote, including the long poem "The Norman Church" and an assembly of articles entitled Year In, Year Out (which Milne likened to a benefit night for the author).[34]

In 1930, Milne adapted Kenneth Grahame's novel The Wind in the Willows for the stage as Toad of Toad Hall.[35] The title was an implicit admission that such chapters as Chapter 7, "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn," could not survive translation to the theatre. A special introduction written by Milne is included in some editions of Grahame's novel.[36]

Milne and his wife became estranged from their son, who came to resent what he saw as his father's exploitation of his childhood and came to hate the books that had thrust him into the public eye.[37] Christopher's marriage to his first cousin, Lesley de Sélincourt, distanced him still further from his parents – Lesley's father and Christopher's mother had not spoken to each other for 30 years.[38][39]

Legacy and commemoration[edit]

"I suppose that every one of us hopes secretly for immortality; to leave, I mean, a name behind him which will live forever in this world, whatever he may be doing, himself, in the next."

—A. A. Milne.[40]

A. A. Milne died on 31 January 1956, aged 74. After a memorial service in London, his ashes were scattered in a crematorium's memorial garden in Brighton.[41]

The rights to A. A. Milne's Pooh books were left to four beneficiaries: his family, the Royal Literary Fund, Westminster School and the Garrick Club.[42] After Milne's death in 1956, thirteen days after his 74th birthday, his widow sold her rights to the Pooh characters to Stephen Slesinger, whose widow sold the rights after Slesinger's death to the Walt Disney Company, which has made many Pooh cartoon movies, a Disney Channel television show, as well as Pooh-related merchandise. In 2001, the other beneficiaries sold their interest in the estate to the Disney Corporation for $350m. Previously Disney had been paying twice-yearly royalties to these beneficiaries. The estate of E. H. Shepard also received a sum in the deal. The UK copyright on the text of the original Winnie the Pooh books expires on 1 January 2027;[43] at the beginning of the year after the 70th anniversary of the author's death (PMA-70), and has already expired in those countries with a PMA-50 rule. This applies to all of Milne's works except those first published posthumously. The illustrations in the Pooh books will remain under copyright until the same amount of time has passed, after the illustrator's death; in the UK, this will be on 1 January 2047. In the United States, copyright will not expire until 95 years after publication for each of Milne's books first published before 1978, but this includes the illustrations.

In 2008, a collection of original illustrations featuring Winnie-the-Pooh and his animal friends sold for more than £1.2 million at auction in Sotheby's, London.[44]Forbes magazine ranked Winnie the Pooh the most valuable fictional character in 2002; Winnie the Pooh merchandising products alone had annual sales of more than $5.9 billion.[45] In 2005, Winnie the Pooh generated $6 billion, a figure surpassed by only Mickey Mouse.[46]

A. A. Milne and E. H. Shepard memorial plaque at Ashdown Forest, East Sussex, the setting for Winnie the Pooh

A memorial plaque in Ashdown Forest, unveiled by Christopher Robin in 1979, commemorates the work of A. A. Milne and Shepard in creating the world of Pooh.[27] Milne once wrote of Ashdown Forest: "In that enchanted place on the top of the forest a little boy and his bear will always be playing."[27]

In 2003, Winnie the Pooh was listed at number 7 on the BBC's poll The Big Read which determined the UK's "best-loved novels" of all time.[47] In 2006, Winnie the Pooh received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, marking the 80th birthday of Milne's creation.[46] That same year a UK poll saw Winnie the Pooh voted onto the list of icons of England.[48]

Marking the 90th anniversary of Milne's creation of the character, and the 90th birthday of Elizabeth II, in 2016 a new story sees Winnie the Pooh meet the Queen at Buckingham Palace. The illustrated and audio adventure is titled Winnie-the-Pooh Meets the Queen, and has been narrated by actor Jim Broadbent.[49] Also in 2016, a new character, a Penguin, was unveiled in The Best Bear in All the World, which was inspired by a long-lost photograph of Milne and his son Christopher with a toy penguin.[50]

Several of Milne's children's poems were set to music by the composer Harold Fraser-Simson. His poems have been parodied many times, including with the books When We Were Rather Older and Now We Are Sixty. The 1963 film The King's Breakfast was based on Milne's poem of the same name.[51]

The Pooh books were used as the basis for two academic satires by Frederick C Crews: 'The Pooh Perplex'(1963/4) and 'Postmodern Pooh'(2002).

An exhibition entitled "Winnie-the-Pooh: Exploring a Classic" appeared at the V & A from 9 December 2017 to 8 April 2018.[52][53][25]

An elementary school in Houston, Texas, United States, operated by the Houston Independent School District (HISD), is named after Milne.[54] The school, A. A. Milne Elementary School in Brays Oaks,[55] opened in 1991.[56]


The bulk of A. A. Milne's papers are housed at the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin. The collection, established at the center in 1964, consists of manuscript drafts and fragments for over 150 of Milne's works, as well as correspondence, legal documents, genealogical records, and some personal effects.[57] The library division holds several books formerly belonging to Milne and his wife Dorothy.[58] The Harry Ransom Center also has small collections of correspondence from Christopher Robin Milne and Milne's frequent illustrator Ernest Shepard.

The original manuscripts for Winnie the Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner are archived separately at Trinity College Library, Cambridge.[59]

Religious views[edit]

Milne did not speak out much on the subject of religion, although he used religious terms to explain his decision, while remaining a pacifist, to join the British Home Guard: "In fighting Hitler," he wrote, "we are truly fighting the Devil, the Anti-Christ ... Hitler was a crusader against God."[60]

His best known comment on the subject was recalled on his death:

The Old Testament is responsible for more atheism, agnosticism, disbelief – call it what you will – than any book ever written; it has emptied more churches than all the counter-attractions of cinema, motor bicycle and golf course.[61]

He wrote in the poem "Explained":

Elizabeth Ann
Said to her Nan:
"Please will you tell me how God began?
Somebody must have made Him. So
Who could it be, 'cos I want to know?"

He also wrote in the poem "Vespers":

"Oh! Thank you, God, for a lovely day.
And what was the other I had to say?
I said "Bless Daddy," so what can it be?
Oh! Now I remember it. God bless Me."
