Sitting Rooms

The sitting room is where we catch up over coffee, watch our favourite TV shows after work and host a cocktail party or two, so – seeing as we spend so much time in this room - it’s important to choose sitting room decoration that will stand the test of time. Here are a few lounge ideas to get the ball rolling and assist you in selecting a comfortable sofa, statement coffee table and unique table lamps to create a space worth showing off.

Better Together

Monochrome looks often have contemporary undertones, but this sitting room is a little different. Instead of a clean-lined sectional suite, we featured our Coleridge set in Navy. Inspired by timeless English designs, the matching pieces lend a sense of simplicity and infuse the space with a combination of classic and modern style.

This welcoming sitting room has a relaxed feel – you'd never know you were in the heart of London. Assorted grass baskets, offering texture in abundance, are layered with rattan and rope detail to heighten the Cycladic vibe. This look may inspire your next Mediterranean adventure (when travel is back on the horizon), but, then again, who needs a sun deck and a dip in the Aegean when you've got your very own olive grove and a corner sofa like this to lounge on?

Master Pieces

This unique, airy space has an open layout. The soft cream and dusty pink-hued walls, in tandem with the beautiful architectural details—such as the poetic archway separating the sitting and dining room—can’t help but lend a sense of romance. Sue chose pieces she loves that fit together with ease, but this is by no means a matchy-matchy look. Instead, assorted side tables feature alongside seating with natural-toned upholstery, which allows your eye to be drawn to the rich greens and oranges in full bloom.


Set In Stone

Sue showcased different woods in the sitting room, such as recycled pine, elm, oak and beech, to introduce texture without impacting the palette chosen especially for the look. Not everything had to match – it was more important to get the color and texture right, hence the artfully mismatched side tables. Multiple accessories decorate the space, but they aren’t all grouped, allowing your eye to spend time on each one.


Second Nature

Lucinda's sitting room is a collage of design styles – a classic English sofa and deep-buttoned ottoman mingle with décor that hints at Asian art. The geometric, gold-framed furniture sharpens the look and brings balance, along with the pair of lamps and set of mirrored wall art panels, resulting in a space that feels calm and relaxed.


Calm & Collected

The keyhole mirror, marble fireplace and patterned rug permeate the sitting room with classic flair whereas an asymmetrical layout gives it a lived-in vibe. The soft colors and natural light draw you in, encouraging you to curl up on the sofa with one of the room's many coffee table books.

It was important to keep the sitting room cool in a warm climate, so Sue stuck to a mainly neutral palette but included a few darker tones, which come through in the pillows, lampshades and tables. The spectacular tree, the centerpiece of the room, introduces drama and a natural element.
