What Houzz contributors are saying:
Mix ‘em up Encourage your guests to mingle by creating an interesting nook in your living room with chromatic and textural harmony between various elements on the walls, furniture and furnishings. Here, the three-dimensional artwork of the framed fabrics and the tufted upholstery of the sofa, coupled with the natural-hued woven rug and the polished wood of the coffee table, together create an inviting spot.
3. Choose raw, natural texturesConsider bringing chromatic and textural harmony between various elements on the walls, furniture, floors and furnishings. Create a monastery-like ambience with raw surfaces or distressed furniture made of recycled wood. A natural wood coffee table, figurines and earthy fabrics in this New Delhi living room appear to promote peace and offer immediate respite from everyday chaos.
ChesterfieldChesterfields are the easiest to spot. Deep button tufting and rolled arms are the hallmark of this classic style. Earlier tufting was limited to leather but now many other fabrics, such as velvet, are used for upholstery as well. Though Chesterfields adorned formal lobbies of luxury hotels at one time, they now frequently find pride of place in many homes too. Need seating for your library? This is the answer!See more Chesterfield sofas
2. Touch of historyThe pieces of fabrics in those frames on the wall, the wooden figurines on the side tables, the Greek bust on the coffee table – these antique pieces lend a certain gravitas to this living room. The coffee table and the rug add to its old-world charm.
