A color combo that's often associated with summer, this classic duo can work any time of year. Just remember texture is key. Rich navy velvet, when layered into a white space, adds a cozy vibe. Don't shy away from pops of color to make the space more dimensional.

Emerald green is back in a big way. This sophisticated hue pairs well with rich wood finishes to create a space that brings drama. Keep the look modern by mixing it up with patterns and bold prints. You will be happy to spend evenings in out of the cold in a space this pretty.

Create a modern and cozy space with charcoal grey and crisp white. On its own grey can be uninviting but paired with bright white and layered with texture it becomes a spot you'll want to curl up in on a cold night. Dark walls, even in a large room, create a more intimate space making it the perfect place for movie night.

Edgy Neutrals

Beige doesn't have to be boring. Beige always creates a warm feel in a space. What makes it unique, and not just another beige room, is the right mix of patterns.

Tips for Choosing the Right Cocktail Table

People often give a lot of thought to choosing a new sofa, then the cocktail table becomes an afterthought. The cocktail table is just as important as the seating in your living room. The wrong one can make or break the way a room functions. Before you buy, you should consider how you want to use it. Do your kids like to use it as a craft area or do you like to eat in front of the TV? Is this just a space to prop your feet after a long day? Think about the answers to those questions and consider these tips on how to choose the right cocktail table for your living space.

In a living room with a sectional, a round table is often the right fit. Those sitting on the inside can easily move around it as they get up and down, since it creates a nice flow. Choose one with a pedestal base instead of legs to keep the space looking clean and uncluttered.

Tables constructed of see-through materials such as glass or lucite are perfect for small spaces. This will create visual space, which makes the room appear larger. They also allow light to bounce around the room more freely, making it seem lighter and brighter. This glass and metal piece is polished and well-suited to a formal living space.

An upholstered cocktail ottoman is often a go-to in a family room. They provide a soft spot for propping up your feet and extra seating when needed. Many ottomans come with a lift top to provide storage, which is always a plus. Upholstered cocktail ottomans are especially nice for homes with small children since there aren’t any pesky sharp corners to bump into.

For those who spend a lot of time in the living room, the lift top coffee table is a must. You can turn your sofa into an office space, dining space, or craft area. Simply lift the top and you instantly change the way the room functions.

The living room is often the most used space in the house. If that’s true in your home, then choose a table that’s hardworking. Distressed solid wood can stand up to kids’ art projects and dinners in front of the TV. This rustic piece isn’t just durable; it has style that will last for years.

 

Your cocktail table shouldn’t be an afterthought. Choosing the right pieces will make the most of the space, and in turn you will enjoy it more. So before you go out and get that new table, really think about how you want it to work in the room. Shop our showroom for all of these options and more.

Five Living Room Layouts to Try

One of the biggest mistakes people make when arranging living room furniture is pushing everything up against the walls. People end up having to sit so far apart that it’s difficult to have conversations, and the room ends up looking like a dance hall. Well-placed furniture will create zones in the space and ensure that each zone is clearly defined. If you struggle with how to arrange your living room furniture then why not give one of these layouts a try:

A good place to start is by floating the sofa in the center of the room.  This is a great option for a long narrow living room since it will break the space into two areas. Just be sure to balance the room by adding the right pieces in unused space, depending on how you want the room to function.

Use two sofas opposite one another or two chairs opposite the sofa. This is a great look around a fireplace. It’s pretty and intimate, and lets the fireplace become the focal point of the room and the seating area.

Who says a living room has to have a sofa? A grouping of stylish chairs can be just as functional and as exciting. This works well in a square living room. Place a coffee table in the center that has enough surface area to handle some pretty accessories and can serve as a landing spot for drinks when entertaining.

If there is truly only one wall that will fit the sofa, then make it interesting. Use a pair of bookcases with some architectural interest on the wall behind the sofa. This gives it more of a designer look, especially when you style the shelves with unique pieces.

Often times, a sectional is the solution for a room with a tricky layout. Living rooms with many doors and windows can benefit from a sectional placed in the center of the room. This will define the space and center the area. Especially in an open floor plan, since it can feel like there is a vast space to fill.

 

Of course, every living room is different and comes with its own set of restrictions. Just remember: there should always be a focal point; keep walkways open and easy to navigate; and when in doubt, hire a professional. We are always here to help you.
