Velvet may be the fabric of the season, but a classic corner arrangement still rules the roost when it comes to sofa design. Corner sofas have continued to increase is popularity this year, with the rise of open plan living and relaxed style living spaces. Sales of corner sofas were up 56 per cent last season and we expect to see this continue to grow. Many ranges offer storage solutions in the chaise end, which are great for those short of space.
Small living rooms need to be kept fresh and uncluttered with well chosen storage. A great way to make a small living room feel larger is to keep it meticulously tidy and in order to do that, everything in the room needs to have its proper place. Floating shelves are perfect for small rooms because they can hold a lot of things on a wall or in alcoves, or choose bespoke fitted, floor to ceiling shelves and cupboards that make use of every inch of spare space.
Create a tailored, designerly look in your living room with pinstripes, they look just as smart on your walls as they do on suits. Choose soft greys so the scheme does not feel overly masculine, and add a luxe touch with accents of gold in your accessories and soft furnishings. Keep window treatments plain and simple, making the walls the star feature.
Mark out a living space with an overhanging pendant light and carefully positioned round coffee table. The two pieces work together to create a focal point around which you can sit a couple of chairs and add floor cushions or stools when guests visit. Here, a selection of accessories and books are displayed on industrial style open shelving to create a relaxed feel without hiding the beautiful texture of a slate feature wall.
