New Year Home Refresh: Living Room Luxury

Now that the glamour of December is gone, your home might be feeling a little lacklustre. But with spring right around the corner, there’s no better time to fully embrace the new year and invite fresh possibilities and a sense of renewal into your home.

So, with this in mind, we’re here to help you unlock the secrets of creating a beautiful living room. Having already explored ideas for your bedroom and dining area, we’re adding another room into the mix and providing our top tips for creating another luxurious living space.

Rearrange your furniture

The easiest way to welcome change into your living room by breathing new life into it is by moving the sofa to a different wall and your TV unit to another. This will help your room feel like an entirely new space once you’ve finished testing different layouts and decor ideas.

Organise your storage

Go through the interior magazines you’ve kept and lusted over, only keeping the up-to-date ones or those containing timeless inspiration. If you’re a fan of minimalism, then stash them away from plain sight in something like the Cattelan Italia Yo-Yo coffee table which boasts a stylish, swivelling upper top. Not only is this a stunning piece with a fabulous, practical design, but it will be something for you to enjoy and admire for many years to come. The polished white finish is our personal favourite as it opens up any space but it's also available in matt grey, matt oyster and polished black.

Award-winning concepts and famous designers have propelled Cattelan Italia to the forefront of contemporary design, making it the perfect choice if you're in the market for the latest in modern interiors. To browse more contemporary coffee tables, view our online selection here.

Your happy corner

Love to read? We recommend the iconic Sixty Two G Plan Vintage recliner chair. Created in 1962 and aptly known as ‘The World’s Most Comfortable Chair’, it has a distinctive winged design, soft foam cushioning and deep buttoned back that provides next-level comfort for those who get to use it. For added luxury, it rocks and swivels too - and its contrasting buttons are available as an option in selected fabrics/leathers.

More into Netflix?

Grab a cushion, blanket and your favourite drink and make yourself comfortable. Here at Ponsford, we have a wide selection of British sofas - such as the Ercol Novara Grand Sofa - that offer an equal combination of both design and comfort.

We also have plenty of TV units to bring your viewing experience close to perfection, which you can browse here.

Incorporate key colour trends for 2019

Find a new colour to use across your cushions, throws, bowls, vases, ottomans or other easy to replace items. The results will be surprisingly effective and incredibly comforting – just what you’ll want when welcoming in the year ahead.

The Pantone 2019 Colour of the Year is Living Coral, described as “an animated, life-affirming shade of orange, with golden undertones”, and is a rich, warming tone - perfect to see you through our cold British winter. Browse our online offer of home accessories for inspiration on how to dress the look.

Flowers, plants and greenery to the rescue

Create your own beautiful, miniature indoor garden to develop over the coming years or, alternatively, if you don’t have the time, opt for some delicate faux plants that require zero attention but will give your home the look and feel of the real thing.

Green will always be synonymous with life and vitality - and bringing the outdoors inside will naturally create a fresh and homely feel.

Try seasonal scents

Smell is one of our strongest senses, so a new home fragrance will easily make your home feel revitalised and refreshed - ready to take on the new year. If 2018’s scent was Emperor's Red Tea Candle, why not make your 2019 home smell of our luxurious, Lakes Candle - a fragrance reminiscent of a refreshing swim in the purest, clearest of blue lakes on a hot summer's day. To browse our full candle collection, visit us in store and discover our luxurious Wax Lyrical scented candles.

At Ponsford, we’re proud to supply luxury furniture choices that suit a variety of individual styles and tastes. Discover more by exploring our living room collections online or, alternatively, visit our showroom here in Sheffield to speak with one of our interior experts today.
