The Sofa-Less Living Room

The Sofa-less living room! This design board and idea is perfect if you have a very small living space (thinking apartment or studio) or you have a space in your home you don’t know what to do with. Have a front formal living room you never use or don’t know how to make it functional? What about a home office that never gets used? This design board is a perfect solution for those spaces! Create a cozy, intimate sitting room where guests can gather and stay a while. A television is not the focal point, your friendship is. Just add coffee, tea or a great glass of wine and you’re set!

Chairs: The McKenna accent chair from Kirkland’s comes in multiple fabrics and is on sale right now! The blue striped fabric & whitewashed frame brings a rustic spin to traditional style. You’ll love how its neutral colors effortlessly blend in with your decor.

Jute Rug: Jute rugs are a great base if you’re layering rugs or they stand well on their own. They add soft texture to any room and are one of our go-to’s!

Cowhide: Mixing a rustic cowhide with a natural fiber rug and traditional chairs creates a collected, eclectic look. Wayfair carries many colors and styles of cowhide rugs & their reviews are 5 stars!

Side Tables: You can go a couple different ways with tables in this space: a cocktail coffee table for guests to rest their drink & put their feet up or a couple of side accent tables. The reclaimed wood on these tables tie in with the wood arms & legs of the chairs.

Pendant Light: An antiqued gold pendant lantern adds a touch of sophistication and some soft lighting for those evening chats with friends.
