Living in Style: Furniture Fashions For Your Lounge
The lounge is one of the focal points of any home, and aside from the bedroom, is one of the rooms in your house where you spend most of your time.
From relaxing after a long day at the office to entertaining friends and family, your lounge is a multi-purpose room. You may even use part of your lounge as an office on the days you are working from home.
With all this in mind, your lounge is a room that you should invest in and by making the right furniture choices you can ensure that you are living in style. Here are some of our top furniture fashion tips to help you level up your lounge’s style.
The Power of a Sofa
There is no denying that the sofa is one of the most important pieces of furniture in your lounge. Not only does it get used the most when relaxing with your favourite Netflix show, but it is often what all your other furniture is based around. The sofa you choose has the power to make or break a room’s decor. Therefore, we recommend that you take your sofa choice very seriously.
Finding the right sofa for you depends on how you plan to use it and what your lifestyle is like. For example, if you are a busy mum with kids to worry about, a white sofa is asking for trouble. But a sofa favourite has got to be a leather sofa, as it is comfortable durable and easily cleaned.
But you should also think about how much space you must choose from. So, before you start looking get out your measuring tape and see how much space your lounge allows for. Once you know, check out the beautiful leather corner sofas here at.
Storage Can Be Fashionable and Functional
When looking for furniture inspiration you may flock to home decor websites and Instagram accounts. The minimalist decor has dominated these kinds of inspiration sources for some time, but if you have a busy life and a family to look after then keeping your home looking like a show home is just not achievable.
However, you will find it a lot easier to keep your lounge looking its best if you have enough storage. Storage does not have to be boring or unfashionable. In fact, it can be functional and fashionable. For example, if you have a lot of books and magazines that can make the room look cluttered, then why not add a dark wood bookshelf to the corner of the room to make a reading nook. You can even group your books by colour to make them look extra stylish and inviting.
It is All About the Wicker, Man
A fashionable furniture trend that has been dominating home decor more recently is wicker furniture. While traditionally you saw a lot of wicker furniture in gardens and outdoor spaces, now that people see the benefit of bringing the outside in, wicker and rattan are appearing more and more in indoor furniture trends.
From rattan sideboards that act as a stylish statement piece while also providing you with great storage to wicker armchairs that look great but are also super comfortable, you should definitely consider bringing some wicker into your life (and your lounge).
If you do not feel comfortable enough to go all out by adding a wicker or rattan piece of furniture yet, then why not ease in gently with a wicker lampshade or coffee table? You will soon feel at home with this modern boho vibe.
Marble Surfaces Are In
Marble has always been synonymous with luxury and is one of the most versatile materials you can include in your home decor. While marble was seen more traditionally in kitchen design, it is now becoming more visible in settings such as lounge areas. This is mostly because it is a wonderful way to add character and depth to a room and looks great alongside other fashion trends.
For example, furniture in muted tones and basic colours, such as grey, white, and black, is in fashion right now. But you can avoid your more timid furnishings looking boring by adding extra textures such as black or white marble. The good news is that adding marble is easier and not as expensive as you might think. From marble coffee tables to marble fire surrounds and accessories, you can add a touch of marble seamless into your lounge decor and maximise that sense of luxury.
While decorating your lounge can feel like an overwhelming task, following the latest home decor trends and creating a space that is reflective of your daily use of the room, you will soon feel relaxed and at home in your newly updated living space.
