ADD WHIMSY TO YOUR SPACE WITH A CHAISE LOUNGE
A new interior design trend is on the rise, and it’s making a splash: color, color, color. Gone are the designs completely focused on minimalism and colorless space. Welcome to a new era of bright hues and bold tints.
One great method for transitioning more color into your space is through a beautiful chaise lounge or sectional. By choosing the right placement and shade, their funky forms and often radiant styles can take any room from plain to lively.
Take a peek at the following tips to get your home ready for a new colorful year of interior décor.
WHERE CAN A CHAISE LOUNGE LIVE IN MY HOME?
Before picking the perfect style of chaise lounge for your home, you must decide where the furniture piece will live. It can go in many different areas, but some rooms may work better than others. Here’s some inspiration to get you started.
Make a Reading Nook
What better way to spend your time than to curl up with a good book or magazine? Carve out a corner of your room to place your chaise lounge, and accompany it with a tall bookshelf, side table, lamp, throw blanket and any other essential book nook elements.
Switch Up Your Home Office
Do you work from home? If so, your at-home office space may need a colorful and comfortable addition. Sitting at your desk all day can get boring. Switch up your options by adding a chaise lounge where you work. Be both productive and relaxed with this stylish setup, and implement some much-needed interest in the room where you spend a good deal of your time.
Fill Empty Space
One of the fabulous things about a small sectional is that it can fit essentially anywhere in your home. If you have a blank space in front of your window or beside your fireplace, a stand-alone chaise lounge may complete the room.
Perfect Your Walk-in Closet
Is your master closet looking a bit bleak? Placing a chaise lounge in the middle of your clothing space can really put the finishing touches on the area you pick your outfit out every morning. Make it your designated area for putting on shoes or sit comfortably while you contemplate what to wear — either way, a chaise lounge, an upholstered bench or a custom sofa can also make your walk-in closet extra glamorous.
CHOOSING A STYLE OF SECTIONAL
You have lots of options when it comes to the style of your chaise lounge or sectional. Which one ignites joy in you? The typical layout of a sectional is a sofa with one end seat as a chaise to put your feet up. As sectionals, by their very name, are made in sections, ask your interior decorator for a personalized layout that fits your space.
This type of furniture has a seat back like a comfortable reclining chair but has a distinct seat contour to support your legs. This luxurious, cushioned sectional may also have an adjustable back that can increase or decrease the angle of elevation, depending on your model.
This bench-style sofa can be transformed into many different forms. Similar to a daybed, this chaise lounge has an un-cushioned back and may have high ends on either side. This wide seat can be a wonderful addition to a living room or bedroom.
This is the closest version of a chaise lounge to a sofa. Typically a traditional sectional has a few short seats with cushioned backs and one long seat to prop your legs and feet up on. Perfect for a living room or family room, this comfortable choice is great for seating more than one person.
There are several subcategories of chaise lounges within each of these styles, and it’s your decision what works best for your home. Want a French-inspired piece? Contemporary and modern? Curved? Straight? If you’re unsure, maybe it’s time to contact us for a little help.
