Eschewing the traditional three-piece suite can be a much simpler design strategy than you might think. One way to create a cohesive yet eclectic look is to harness a mishmash of chairs, sofas and daybeds from different eras and in different styles and materials but the same color. The owners of this modern family room have combined a classic Eames chaise with a modern daybed and a simple sofa, but all in shades of white for a harmonious mood. White will always create an easy-on-the-eye look, but make sure you use hard-wearing materials and washable or wipeable fabrics if yours is a busy family home.
I like the flared sides on this piece as well as the tone-on-tone pillows. Ready for snuggling, this daybed invites you to stay awhile. My favorite thing about the Emmerson daybed is the wood structure. I‘m picturing this piece on a sitting porch or even in an extra-large foyer. Available in several fabric options, this daybed has a great boxy shape that contrasts with the roll pillows. You can opt to add a trundle bed beneath its skirt. For a classic rolled-arm shape but on a more flexible piece, here is the Afton daybed. I think it has a great shape that could tempt even the most traditional decorator to break the rules.
A truly great desk chair can be extremely hard to find. Sure, you can go to the local office supply store and pick one up, but let‘s face it: Those might be functional, but they‘re often seriously lacking in style, quality and personality. But when you do find the one, it‘s a great feeling! Your perfect chair should keep you comfortable while you work (whether it‘s for hours or minutes), and it should also fit perfectly with your decor so that you can stay inspired and happy in your workspace.
As our interest in personalized interiors grows, the days when a three-piece suite was the backbone of any self-respecting living room feel long gone. Now it‘s all about letting a spirited mix of colors, prints, textures and shapes dictate our seating choices. To do it well, choose blocks of color and pieces from different eras that sit together nicely. Pick out designs, fabrics and hues you love and bring them together them with a dash of recklessness. This will work best if you follow a few basic rules, such as sticking with a neutral backdrop and pairing colors with care. But don’t be afraid to experiment. You might just stumble across something unexpected that works and figure out the rule that makes it so later. Let these ideas fuel your imagination.
