ARE YOU SITTING COMFORTABLY?
A sink-into sofa is essential, and an armchair if you have room. Stools needn’t be refined to tired toes; position an ottoman beneath a window to create your own window seat and use a compact stool for occasional seating.
We ask a lot from our living rooms. It’s a space to which we retreat when our bodies call for cosiness; it’s a space that must beckon guests, making them feel instantly at home; it’s a space that we ask to entertain, ready to awake from the slumber we asked from it only the day before. A living room has to stay on its toes, ready to respond to whatever our lives throw its way. A living room lives to look after us.
