What's the one piece of furniture you'd class as a necessity for your home? The one piece you'd be willing to invest that little bit more in and take your time choosing? For me, it would be my sofa and arm chair. These two pieces alone make my living space feel instantly inviting. However, when I first moved into my apartment and started the search for a sofa, it was overwhelming to say the least. There just seemed to be so many styles, so many places to look, which size, what fabric. The list goes on. Which is why The Lounge Co really stood out to me when their email landed in my inbox, introducing the brand.
Designed and produced in the UK, by the craftsmen behind G-Plan, Parker Knoll and Duresta no less, The Lounge Co offers a carefully curated selection of 12 sofa styles, 6 chair silhouettes and 6 footstool designs in over 110 fabric and colour choices. The fabric and colour was never an issue for me when I started my sofa hunt, but the silhouette, that's what threw me.
Comprising four stories within the collection - Casual Classics, Deep & Loungey, Contemporary and Iconic - there's a real feel of personalisation with this brand, with over 75,000 combinations of feet, fabric and style. So today, as the brand officially launches online, I thought I'd pull together some of my favourite pieces (including the beautiful Joseph pictured above) and show you how I'd style them in my home in the real world.
A contemporary twist on a wing chair, Thomas is a modern classic. Low, deep and comfy this seat screams 1920's elegance. For this style I would add a gold mirrored side table, fresh white peonies, low hanging pendant lighting and contrasting geometric print accent cushions. I absolutely love the Art Deco feel of this chair, which I'd have in a rich velvet and brass legs.
