A cozy sofa, the essential of the cocooning living room
The sofa embodies the very essence of the living room, without it the living room has no place to exist. But not all sofa sizes contribute to creating a warm living room. The seat should be as generous as possible, inviting the whole family to laze around. In terms of materials, the popularity of leather is increasingly declining in favor of thick fabrics such as velvet . In question, our need to feel enveloped, as if protected by the centerpiece of the living room.
Household linen reinforces the cocooning atmosphere

Neglected – wrongly – by many of us, household linen is a key component of the cozy living room. Fluffy plaids always bring a nice drape to the seats of the living room, whether they are laid down in a hurry or lined up strictly. Cushions are just as essential to living room comfort; they enhance the silhouette of the sofa, especially when chosen in a dark shade or covered with a light pattern.

From floor to ceiling, it is fashionable to take care of the comfort of the living room; and what could be better than a warm rug to pamper our feet at the same time? The carpet contributes to creating a feeling of well-being in all rooms of the house. For a cozy stay, we prefer very padded models, although they are less easy to maintain. Then it remains to choose between the very trendy Berber and kilim rugs or the timeless faux fur.
Table lamps, price on request, Foscarini.
Feeling comfortable in the living room is not only a question of furnishing. The lighting fixtures vary the living room atmosphere considerably and play a determining role in the scripting of your living room. A floor lamp installed near an armchair is enough to isolate a reading corner in a large living room. The cocooning spirit likes soothing and subdued atmospheres, so exit the XXL pendant lamp which blinds you when you wake up, instead multiply the table lamps and floor lamps with medium brightness.
