People say the kitchen is the heart of the home, and we’re not about to start arguing with that (you know we love our kitchens, after all). But, if the kitchen’s the heart of the home, then perhaps the living room is the soul. It’s the place where we gather at the end of a long day; where we curl up with the people we love best; where we snuggle down in front of favourite TV shows to laugh, cry or contemplate; where we swap presents on Christmas morning and fall down on the sofa after Christmas dinner. It’s a place of comfort, cosiness and family, so we think it’s JUST as important as the kitchen!
But how do you go about choosing the right living room furniture for you? After all, you’re going to be spending a lot of time in there, so you want to purchase pieces that will make you feel like you. Pieces that will show your guests who you are, and fit so seamlessly into the rest of your interior decor it’s like they were made for each other.
With that in mind, read on to find out which of our amazing furniture ranges is perfect for YOU.
If you’re all about colour…
You’re bold, bright and bubbly. You wouldn’t be caught dead in an all black outfit and you’ve never painted anything ‘beige’ in your life – nor will you! For you, a colourful life is a great life, and you’re not afraid to express your lovable personality in your decor. Good for you, colour lover!
Some people who aren’t in the colour camp might think colour = childish, but you know that doesn’t have to be the case. With well chosen accessories, clean lines and simple styling, candyfloss colours can look impeccably chic – as you can see above. Our Jade 3 Seater Sofa in Duck Egg Blue with Bamboo Aqua pillows (and matching armchair!) is the stuff your colourful dreams are made of.
To bring the colour to life, these sofas are best paired with the gorgeous natural tone of our Bevel range. Its contemporary shape will keep the room from looking too ‘playground-chic’, and those glistening silver handles will beautifully reflect any colourful accessories. Yellow and blue work perfectly together – so why not pick up a yellow-based Novara Lamp whilst you’re shopping?
If you love the simple life…
You’re all about the stress-free life. For you, home is a sanctuary – it’s a space where you can really relax and be yourself, and you don’t have to worry about what anything looks like. You’re not too bothered about the latest trends; you’re drawn to the kind of pieces that will last year after year, and can be easily transported into any home you might live in. After all, you might like a simplistic home decor, but that doesn’t mean you’re not an adventurer at heart!
That’s why the Edinburgh range is perfect for you. Crafted from natural solid oak, the stunning colour of this range will blend seamlessly into any kind of decor style. It’s the kind of furniture that was built for you, designed to made your home as happy and effortless as possible. So whether you live in the smallest apartment or the biggest mansion, this range will lend instant style and character to your home.
Here, we’ve paired pieces from this lovely range with our Gainsborough sofa, in beige. Like the Edinburgh range, this sofa will fit perfectly into any kind of home. It’s a classic!
If you’re a true country bumpkin…
City schmity – there’s nowhere you’d rather be than the countryside! For you, the perfect Sunday is spent in wellies and fleece jackets, trekking through wide open space with a dog at your feet and the wind in your hair. It doesn’t take much to make you smile – just a healthy dose of fresh air and the promise of a pub lunch. Nothing makes you smile like good old fashioned tradition.
You’re our kind of person, and that’s why we made the French Farmhouse range with you in mind. The subtle stain of this solid oak range lends a lovely golden colour to each piece, giving it that timeless and traditional look.
But that doesn’t mean it looks dated! Our French Farmhouse range is actually based on a classic French design, but updated to ensure it fits in with contemporary styles. For extra comfort and cosiness, pair this timeless range with our Dorchester sofa in Stone. You could even pick up the matching armchair as well – now wouldn’t that be perfect by a roaring fire with a big mug of tea…
If you’re in touch with your feminine side…
Embrace your femininity with our Orrick Solid Oak range. The softly rounded corners and gentle curved lines of this beautiful furniture set add instant softness and chicness to any kind of room, but are especially at home in a living room. The natural colour of the oak will also work wonderfully against any soft, pale colours. Why not try embracing pastel this season?
Keep it extra cosy by pairing this range with our 100% Real Leather Brandon Sofa. The gentle cream colour was made for snuggly accessories, but the leather finish adds just a hint of toughness. After all, ladies, we all know girls are tough too.
If you just don’t know what you want…
You don’t really mind what kind of living room you end up with! For you, a living room is so much more than just a place to express your interior design preferences. It’s already the most important room in your house – whether you’ve just moved in or have lived there for years. All you know is you need furniture that will last a lifetime and look stylish in your home, whatever the current trends are. For that, look no further than our Original Rustic range.
This style is a much-loved favourite of ours AND our customers, and it’s not hard to see why! The Original Rustic range encompasses everything we love about beautiful oak furniture. It looks good, it fits into your home effortlessly and it’ll last as long as you need it to. With these pieces in your living room, you’ll be able to put your feet up and enjoy being in the space sooner than you can say “Where did you put the remote?”!
Didn’t find the right range for you? Don’t worry – this is just a sample of our collection. We’ve got a wide variety of living room furniture available in all different styles, as well as a huge selection of sofas!
