A cosy living room is a comfortable and warm space, conducive to relaxing and unwinding, an ideal refuge from cold weather throughout autumn and winter. Selecting the right interior furniture can help you create that homely and agreeable atmosphere that you’ll always look forward to coming home to.
How to make your living room feel cosy?
The centrepiece of your living room is the sofa, so it’s important to find the right seating that suits your interior. A sofa is the one spot where you can relax after a long day of work and where the whole family comes together to spend some quality time. An enjoyable settee is durable, soft and long-lasting. For the ultimate comfort, you can’t go wrong with a classical sofa. The Ivy 3 Seater Cream Linen Sofa is a good example of a mid-century-inspired classic sofa. It features cream-coloured linen upholstery with a padded seat and matching cushions and can be worked to suit a variety of interior design styles, whether classic or contemporary. Why not go for something extravagant? The Oren 4 Seat Light Blue Bean Shape Sofa and its unusual curve can seat all the family. It’s a fantastic choice for adding a futuristic touch to your living space. If you’re obsessed with the vintage look, leather is for you. If searching for tranquil colour pallette, consider Buttoned Back Viviana Soft Grey Sofa, which offers charisma and style. Timeless and elegant, it is upholstered in beautiful soft grey linen.
Once you find the perfect sofa, orient the piece toward the room’s most prominent feature, such as the fireplace, TV or window. Include alternative seating near the sofa, not too far from each other and in a circle, so everybody feels connected and can be part of the conversation. For a traditional touch, the Grey Armchair With Buttoned Back And Studs is made for you. Thickly padded, the armchair is slightly reclined to achieve the perfect angle for more comfort. Another option is the stylish Hildie Sand Fabric Armchair, incredibly soft and cosy. Crafted from sand colour fabric, the armchair offers a supportive backrest with rounded edges and can suit any interior style. Fan of leather? Sophisticated and retro, the Vintage Brown Leather Armchair inspired by Italian design is a must-have for your living room.
Play with texture and tactility. The textures used in a room can add depth and have a massive impact on how an interior feels, warming up any room. Incorporating cushions, throws and blankets are the keys to a homey feeling, your sanctuary away from problems and anxiety. Complement your living room with our Ysidor Monochromatic Cushion and Large Contemporary Black & Cream Throw.
When it comes to flooring a living room, nothing is better than carpet or a rug for ultimate cosiness. Ideally, place your rug just under the front legs of your sofa and completely under your coffee table. Adding a rug is a brilliant way to integrate deeper shades into your decor. Sabera Cowhide Large Leather Rug With Studs and its symmetrical patchwork and metallic stud detailing will bring a sophisticated feel to your room. It is the perfect option to feel warm underfoot and keep the chill away during colder temperatures.
The ambience also must be warm and welcoming. Lighting is a core element of any room, particularly in autumn and winter when the days are shorter. Be sure to include plenty of different ambient lighting to refine the style of your room. For different lighting effects combine ceiling lights, chandeliers, and wall lights with floor and table lamps. The 5-Light Industrial Style Large Kitchen Island Linear Pendant Wooden Ceiling Light will introduce a trendy rustic accent, early 20th century inspired, it’s refined yet natural and charming. A popular choice as they are the best option to illuminate dark corners, why not add a chic piece like the Yasmeen Gold Finish Floor Lamp to your lighting scheme? Comforting and captivating, natural light sources including candles and fireplaces are also crucial elements to provide warmth to your home. To reflect the light, mirrors are your allies, opposite your window or above a piece of furniture, the Marcellus Sunburst Deco Mirror or the Parisienne Lamont Overmantle Wall Mirror will make your living room feel airy and brighter. The Chateau de Versailles and its Hall Mirror demonstrate perfectly how a mirror can give the illusion of a bigger space.
What makes you feel at home?
Plants, books, cherished possessions? It’s extremely important that your living room shows off your personality, and surround yourself with things that you love. Think about what style suits your nature and what connects you to your home. Make sure to factor in accessories like wall hangings and seasonal decorations. If you take a little time to consider these strategic additions, you’ll feel cosier than ever in your chic living room.
