2. Colour Harmony

Balancing out colours in a room can be a challenge especially when you are a huge fan of colours. For a colour perfect room, it is best to stick with constant colour tones and intensities, and also avoid mixing pastels colours with primary colours, or muted colours with jewel colours. Mustards and rich reds such as the Terra Rug go well with leather furniture, while the Agio Rug is a perfect combination of muted colours, which definitely will gel well with fabric textured armchairs or couches.

4. Cozy

In order to create a cozy ambience to your home, the furniture used should relate to both style and comfort. One of the simplest method to do so is by surrounding yourself with huge fluffy carpets, wavy wallpapers and fabrics like wool, cotton or knit. We recommend the Montana Ivory stool to be used in such a setting. The raw aesthetics of the Montana Ivory stool would take your soul back to the softly lit and cozy homes of Nordic destinations.

5. Combine your interests with your furniture

Can't decide which look to go for? When stuck between options, fabrics are the best way to combining your preferences. If you love reading, try creating a reading nook with a rustic Fanore rug and the contemporary Trivet table. If you are an art lover, try placing boho chic poufs such as Artisan pouf around while hanging modern artwork on the wall to get the best of both worlds.
