When buying new furniture, you’ll notice one thing right away: It’s not your grandma’s furniture. Modern furniture has a lot more going for it. Style is key, but modern furniture can now also be eco friendly and comfortable.
Comfortable means not only means cozy, but also easy on the eyes. When entering a room, a look can soothe and make your home a place of respite and relaxation. Flowing lines, subtle texture, and complimentary colors contribute to this feeling, as well as a lack of clutter. Furniture that stores essentials and displays treasures contributes to a comfortable environment.
In the living room, choose a sofa with clean lines and cushions covered with your choice of natural fabrics. If you want to go green, you’ll be pleased to see that modern options include post-consumer coverings. Add a chair or two that fit your body type in a contrasting color and fabric and add tables to hold lamps, refreshments, and storage. A colorful rug, textured pillows, and a cozy throw complete the room.
A modern table that fits your style will be the focus of your dining area. Choose from glass, wood, or metal and size according to your needs. Remember that smaller is cozier. Add comfortable chairs to match the style of your table. Benches have become popular recently, providing flexible seating at the table. A couple of cushiony bar stools near a high counter set the scene for a quick breakfast or snack.
Of all the rooms in the home, your bedroom should be the most comfortable. Start with the right size mattress. While a king sized bed is just right for a couple or family, a single person may feel more comfortable in a queen or full sized bed. Modern bed styles vary from simple to ornate. Some beds provide lots of storage. If you want something simpler, a basic bed frame will do the trick. Beds are available in wood or leather, as well as upholstered with soothing fabrics. Height is another consideration when choosing this very important piece of furniture.
Dressers and nightstands should compliment the style of your bed. Make sure that there is enough storage space, but don’t put so much furniture in the bedroom that it feels cluttered. Finally, remember that high quality sheets, blankets, and pillows are essential to a comfortable bedroom.
Outdoor furniture is made for comfort. A casual dinner or drinks on the patio can be a pleasure when the right furniture is chosen. Outside, the first consideration should be weather-resistant durability.
Start with a modern portable fireplace. Add a couple of seats nearby and a table and chairs for dining. For sunny days, relax in a chaise lounge chosen from a variety of materials including mesh, slats, or soft, natural fabrics. For cover, add an umbrella or sunshade or indulge yourself by installing a cabana. The ultimate for comfortable furnishings outdoors, a cabana provides a private area amid flowing fabric and is the perfect location for a tete-a-tete or afternoon nap.
