Have you recently changed a room design in your home or another type of property?
Have you recently changed a room design in your home or another type of property? Have you suddenly found yourself in need of some new furniture, but you have no idea where to start? Maybe you are torn between a super-comfy recliner and one with heat and massage? Whatever floats your boat…
In this blog, we look at some simple ways to help you match your sofa and chairs to your new interior room scheme.
Think About Your Room Layout
Size matters (sorry!). Before you start shopping for any new furniture, you need to consider the room size and layout. If you are looking for a reclining chair, then check whether it will fit once it has been reclined. If you want a feature chair for a bedroom, then check how this will affect the room dynamic, when placed alongside your bed, chest of drawers, and so on.
Don’t have much room? The Burleigh Velvet Pushback Recliner Armchair in Green has been designed for smaller spaces. This beautiful armchair will easily blend in with a variety of contemporary décor schemes. Aesthetically pleasing to the eye, this modern little number is compact, comfy and a joy to behold.
Think About How Your Room Will Be Used
If your room has been designed with relaxation in mind, then a comfy chair will help you to create a restful area. If you have styled your room to have a luxurious feel, then this needs to be reflected in the furniture, as well as the furnishings. For example, you could consider an accent chair covered in crushed velvet or another soft, elegant fabric.
However, if you’re looking for luxury combined with sheer comfort, then why not consider the Ascott Recliner in Midnight Blue Velvet? This feature chair is super-stylish with its classic wingback design, stud detailing and curvaceous dark wooden legs. And, with its secret pushback recline function, this beautiful armchair is very practical too.
Think About Your Colour Palette
If you have spent some time designing your room, then you may have consulted a colour wheel to determine your colour palette. Successful interior room schemes nearly always embrace the key principles of colour theory. So, decide whether you want to create a statement or whether you want your furniture to subtly blend into the background.

If you are looking for a practical chair that will cleverly offset virtually any modern interior design scheme, then look no further! The Kenilworth Linen Pushback Recliner Armchair in Charcoal is covered in a linen fabric and supported by beautiful dark wooden tapered legs. Easy to operate, you simply push back with your legs to sink back into a super-supportive, reclined position.
Think About Natural and Artificial Light
How does natural light fall into the room from nearby windows? This may determine the location of your furniture and the type of cover you choose. For example, do you want a comfy chair to sit back and read a book in? Remember, natural light will eventually fade certain fabrics, so it’s always best to compare different furniture covers.
When it comes to artificial lighting, check where any shadows fall within the room. If you have bought a floor lamp, this may need to be positioned to suit the location of an armchair. Likewise, if you have wall or ceiling lamps, experiment by moving around the room to see where the light falls. This will guide you on where you should place your sofa and any chairs.
Think Before You Buy
If in any doubt, then always contact the seller to get the lowdown on a sofa or chair. This is one of the reasons we have an expert team of customer service advisors on hand to help our customers with any queries they may have. We can advise you on every detail, so you can make a fully informed choice before you buy.
Before you start mixing and matching elements for your interior room design, why not create a mood board? This is your way of communicating your ideas and it can prove very useful, especially when using a decorator. If you’re already enjoying your new interior room scheme, then make sure you buy a sofa and chair that you will love for many years to come.
