Living Room / March 6, 2018 / Priscilla Douglass
No one said a regular three-seater sofa is a must have for the living room. What you do need is place for your guests to sit comfortably. In a formal living room, replace the sofa with armchairs. For a more informal living room design, you could also throw in beanbags and poufees. A cushioned bench or a daybed will serve you in the same way as a sofa while simultaneously adding a unique touch to your living room. A futon paired with armchairs is another viable alternative to the regular three seater sofa set arrangement. Along with giving our living room a contemporary look, these other pieces of furniture also allows the room to be used as an impromptu guest room to accommodate surprise guests. The picture of this living room above is an example of things can look radically different without the normal sofa set.
For those who like to alter the mood in the living room from one season to another, changing the colour of the upholstery and adding accents and accessories make it easy to achieve. Turquoise blue is a favourite for the summer. Add a contrast floral print on a winged back chair and multi-coloured cushions to complete the summery look. Don’t forget to fill the vases with fresh flowers!
