Know-How: Styling your living room with cosy textures
How to style your living room with cosy textures
There's a debate raging around our new cosy textures: are they plush, furry or woolly? One thing is in agreeance; interior addicts cannot get enough of tactile fabrics this Autumn.
"Feel-good textures such as bouclé create the perfect balance in your living room between luxury and cosiness," says Laura Barnard, Arlo & Jacob's Buying and Merchandising Manager. "Top of your list for this Autumn should be adding cosy layers. From sofas to rugs and cushions, don't limit yourself."
Take inspiration from our plush new products, available exclusively in Harrogate, and discover how to create a cosier ambience.
Layer your living room with tactile home accessories and fabrics
"There are so many opportunities in a home to improve your mood," says Laura, "the real story behind these plush textures is our desire for self-care and well-being."
Further, experiment with mixing styles such as traditional with retro and then adding plenty of texture. Our new Zachary corner sofa (featured above) mid-century looks warm and inviting with its husky cushion. "These tactile fabrics feel familiar and comforting, which is what people are gravitating towards in their homes."
Update a classic sofa with modern tactile fabrics
"The new feel-good textures have an air of luxe about them that makes you home feel dressed-up," Laura adds. "We love their mood-enhancing qualities."
"We took the same styling strategy with our classic-shaped Grace sofa, covered in Chamonix Blush, and styled it with textured cushions, rugs and a rustic side table for a more relaxed mood."
Surrounded by plush and cosy home accessories, Grace looks timeless but with a modern twist.
A corner sofa can still feel cosy
"Transform the experience of your home with bold statement pieces but make sure they feel inviting," enthuses Laura. Our Fern grande corner feels less intimidating and more intimate in Cologne, Mink. "This is one uber cosy fabric, and it makes even our largest designs ready for cocooning."
Spending more time in our homes means we need to keep evolving them. Explore our new range exclusively at Harrogate and sink in deep with our feel-good sofas.
