4 Sofas with Chaise That Embellish Your Living Room

4 Sofas with Chaise That Embellish Your Living Room

Good sofas with chaise set apart any living area, and as you can see in the following images, there are tremendous people showcasing how to use a sofa to set apart their living areas in many different styles.

Sofas with Chaise Integrate with Exposed Wood Architecture

Natural elements and whites define this lovely lounge space. The bench-style coffee table and exposed wood architecture offer textural and rustic contrast to the more subdued rug, walls, and sofa. Curl up here with a book or put your feet up while you stream your favorite show. Mismatched pillows keep things casual without straying from the defined style, and the greenery indoors and out adds to the natural feel.

Elegant Understatement

Relax or host friends in this elegant, but understated room. The square arms of this sofa make a convenient surface for your book or drink, and add a masculine quality to the space. The low back of the sofa and short-statured coffee table leave the room itself to make a statement, with its tall windows and monochromatic walls. Use pillows soften the look, and accessories and fixtures to tie in the wood of the floor.

Versatile Space Created with Sofa

This versatile space invites family movie night, lunch with a friend, or a place to spread out and conquer an important project. The coffee and side tables are both decorative and practical, and the sofa with chaise lounge offers comfort and style. A pair of lamps frames the space and additional interest is held by the geometric pillows framing the living space.

Mid-Century Sofa with Chaise

We love the midcentury vibe in this arrangement. The arm chair offers the perfect accent to the sofa with chaise, and its naturally warm color ties in perfectly to the round coffee table, floor lamp and window. You almost can’t go wrong with the sofa’s gray upholstery, and it’s perfect in this informal living room. Add some art and unique task lighting to round out a relaxed, inviting atmosphere.

These Windows Inspire Your Interior Design

These Windows Inspire Your Interior Design

When making design choices for your home, consider the windows. Size, placement, and even the view can really promote, or detract from, the atmosphere of a space. Read on to see how the uses of windows inspire the design in the rooms pictured below.

Wall of Windows Inspire Design

Not all of us are lucky enough to have a wall of windows like this, but if you do, using natural elements and colours can make it seem as if the indoors extends out, and the outdoors in. Sofas below the windows give you every advantage of the area, and plenty of natural light to enjoy. Verdant green in upholstery and potted plants brings in some of the lush foliage, and the tones of stone and brick carry into the view. Bold pillows in sunset hues enliven the space and keep it from feeling too subdued.

Alcove Windows Inspire Comfort

This welcoming alcove brings attention to the outdoors in a completely different way. The grays of carpet, wall, and shingle frame the fresh green of the landscape, and the accessories do not compete with the view. Instead, interest is added by way of texture – the patterned upholstery, the drape of blanket, the inviting fluff of pillow. Take advantage of your windows’ view by making it part of the decor of your home.

Windows Integrate Interior and Exterior Design

The clean, straight lines of these black-paned windows and door definitely appeal to our Scandi design aesthetic. The outdoor dining set on the protected patio and the furniture indoors are well matched, and they both have the simple design and natural materials that are also found in the floor and structure itself. Enjoy visual harmony when the indoors and outdoors play well together, and are part of the same cohesive arrangement.

A Sitting Room Set Aside

A stylish sitting area doesn’t have to require a premium of space. Here, a modest sofa defines a comfortable conversation area without overtaking the entire room.

A Simple Sitting Area

This simple area provides all the necessary basics for a retreat from the day’s busyness, or a place to comfortably finish up a task. The unobtrusive coffee table ties together both the monochromatic tone of the two-seater sofa and the round shape of the light fixture. The color scheme allows for myriad accents, from the neutral tones of the pillows and throw to the green of plant and flowers; even the hazy blue of the area rug.

A Living Room Seating Area

With a larger space for entertaining or family, you can use several pieces without overwhelming the room, provided it’s done right. This comfortable sofa and rug anchor and define this welcoming sitting room. The accent chair and coffee and end tables provide plenty of convenient surfaces while their minimalist structure keeps from weighing down the space. The floor brings a warmth to the palette, which is echoed in a few items, including the creative display of books.
