Step into any hip hotel, cool members club or fashionable restaurant, and in order to set the right tone, the audio will have been carefully considered. How somewhere sounds has become as important as how it looks.Our homes reflect our personalities and so do our playlists. Music is the soundtrack to our lives, so when it comes to creating the right atmosphere at home, it pays to make your sound-system an integral part of any design scheme or interior update.

But no one wants unattractive or obtrusive speakers, right? We want discreet, stylish audio equipment that streams our favourite tracks from room to room, or that allows other family members to stream theirs too.

Creating ambience at home is key - and enabling you to do just that is Harman Kardon’s innovative Citation Series. Scoring high on both acoustics and aesthetics, the five-speaker system not only delivers on sound quality, it provides the option of using the speakers individually or teaming them up to create a powerful 5.1 channel surround sound system. With an integrated system, you can wake up to the soothing sounds of classic FM, then rock out in the shower to something more invigorating.

Beautifully designed – with a nod to Scandinavian style – the speakers feature the brand’s signature industrial style and are clad in Winter Grey or Classic Black wool fabric, from Kvadrat, the European leader in acoustic textiles. Accented with elegant aluminium detailing, they have a sleek and sophisticated look, that’s a welcome addition in interiors for design aficionados.

With their neutral tones and elegant appearance, these speakers can be easily integrated into any chic scheme. Team with a favourite artwork, some simple vases and accessories in contrasting colours to create an attractive vignette or place with a stylish reading lamp for a relaxation zone.

Choose a smaller model for the study, or something bigger for the living area so you can get heavy on the bass, in time for the party season.

Streaming the latest download or finding a favourite song is easy too, with the Google Assistant voice-activation option, built into Harman Kardon's Citation Series.Selecting music and creating different zones at home, just got a whole lot simpler and more stylish.
