Sure, a big couch is key in every living room. But what about when you want a little more space for yourself? A big, cozy chair is the ideal place to curl up and grab the aforementioned alone time. Plus, it’s a great addition to the living room of anyone who entertains. Not every guest wants to sit side-by-side with a complete stranger – or even a close friend. Add an accent pillow and a cozy throw and you’ve created an inviting addition to your dream living room.
If you’re looking for a place to get started, we recommend one of our Freshome favorites: the Drake Sofa from West Elm, pictured above in Twill in Dark Horseradish. Some of our writers love the bright pop of yellow, while others prefer the more lush look of Distressed Velvet in Forest or Dusty Blush. All this to say, your accent furniture is a place to showcase your design preferences and pick a piece that will wow your friends.
Combing a light fixture with a ceiling fan can be a great way to maximize space and function. While ceiling fans are certainly not as popular as they once were, in warmer climates they are sometimes necessary. Rather than trying to overdo it and installing both overhead lights and fans, consider two-in-one options to maximize space. In this mid-century modern room, the old-fashioned ceiling fans fit right in.
