Sitting Rooms

The living 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.

Sitting Room

This elegant apartment overlooks the heart of London; the view from the sitting room is truly stunning. Our Savile Modular Sofa fits the space perfectly and the cushions are ideal for autumn but can easily be changed with the seasons. A few gold accents here and there add a dash of opulence.

A room with a view and a spectacular one at that. The sitting room follows the same warm-toned colour palette used throughout the mountainside home, made even more inviting thanks to a wood burning fireplace and large woven rug. Sue created a lot of seating, using two sofas, two armchairs and floor cushions, footstools and even the ottoman can double up as extra seating space, if it is needed.

The walls of this Victorian annexe were painted with blue and white stripes, they create height in a sloped ceiling and add a dash of fun. Almost every square inch of space is covered in some sort of pattern; the geometric design cut into the cabinet doors, the bold Aztec spirals woven in the rug and the block prints adorning the lampshades, armchairs and cushions, which are designed by Lucinda herself.


The Big Green Apple

Using our Ashmolean Bookshelves, Annabel split the living room into two distinct areas, allowing one side to work as a sitting room and the other, a dining room which doubles up as a workspace. There’s that saying, ‘blue and green should never be seen’, but Annabel through that out of the window with this scheme. The blue velvet sofas are incredibly comfortable and complement the stylish green home accessories.


Another Day In Paradise

Lucinda has made her tropical sitting room highly practical, without having to compromise on style. The slatted walls have been painted an off-white to keep the house cool whilst plantation shutters ensure that the amount of light creeping into the room can be adjusted. The most beautiful shades of green and purple mesh with warm oak furniture to bring more natural touches to the look. A Gothic Renaissance-style console table and tall plants create magnificent shapes and shadows.


La Dolce Vita

The sitting room features ornate gilded furniture and accessories inspired by 1950s décor. Bold printed cushions elevate a neutral L-shaped sofa, and, when paired with matching curtains and a striking modern print, bring the space together. Recurring geometric motifs appear throughout this scheme to create contrast and draw the eye, from circles (the mirror, side table and door handles on the art deco-style sideboard) to squares (the lamp, coffee table and contemporary rug).

The walls of this sitting room were painted a soft, muted neutral colour, but in the end Sue decided that it needed a bit of zing, so a red line was painted around the room at chest height. Pictures were hung in a line above, as a focus for the eye. The space reflects an appreciation for eastern and western design, French urns, an oriental-inspired coffee table and a vase bursting with peonies drown it in beauty and make it a place suitable for entertaining.

In this beautiful sitting room with a view overlooking the Thames, Lucinda uses lots of metals to mirror the modern setting. Bright colours and patterns add warmth to the space, and the crittall window gives the room a modern edge. A focal point is the corner sofa which provides a layer of comfort to this traditional sitting room.
