Lounge up your living room

There’s just something irresistible about hotel lounges. What if you take the hotel out of the picture – and just bring that feeling home with you?

Group your furniture to open up the room

Placing furniture together has a way of creating islands of comfort. Instead of leaving pieces along the walls, cluster them to open up the room. Let a tone-on-tone colour scheme add harmony and style – and dare to leave a beautiful wall completely bare.

Use curtains to control the light

Layered curtains offer a stylish, flexible way to control light and temperature. Use parallel rods, here with a curtain combination of sheer SPARVÖRT and thicker SANELA. Sombre pastels add to the mood, and a thick rug completes your cosy spot in the light.

Stylish simplicity

There’s no need to fill shelves until they’re completely packed. Instead you can use empty spaces to highlight what’s on display.
