Can you help me with the floor plan for my room using the Room Planner? I’m looking at the Prodigy sofa and loveseat. I also want some kind of recliner to go with it.
Based upon the information you’ve given me for your room, I was able to use Home Furniture’s Room Planner to do a floor plan. This handy little tool is on the www.homefurn.com website and contains room templates, customization, finishes, and furniture and accessory items. You can change dimensions, and the drag and drop features make it really easy to use. The set-up I have of the Prodigy upholstery group in our Beaumont store is my favorite, so I’ve highlighted those choices.
The floor plan can have a very traditional set-up. A sofa, flanked by two side tables, and loveseat are centered on the fireplace and bookcases. A recliner is angled toward the fireplace, opposite the loveseat. An accent chair and chairside chest, while being apart from the main group, balance the setting. Layered rugs add depth and warmth.
Home Furniture’s 8010 upholstery group from Corinthian is colored “Mink”. However, it is a soft, grayed green, like a sage green. Its brown undertones help make it a wonderful neutral that coordinates with a multitude of colors. In addition, the accent pillows have brown, cream, and black.
I really like the pairing of the traditional Grandview recliner with this sofa. The rich brown leather-match cover and nailhead-trimmed rolled arms make it ideal.
Standard’s 2193 Seville occasional tables mix a deep cherry finished wood, antique brass, and glass. The slightly rounded sides and clipped corners give more interest to the style of the tables.
This French-styled accent chair and chairside chest make a nice accent to the room. Despite being a lighter wood, they blend well with the creams and browns in the sofa pillows.
The matching sofa table is a great option, but why not try a coordinating furniture piece? Use a treasured antique or something like the Avalon or Canterbury cabinets from Stein World. These could provide extra storage if needed. I especially like solid-backed pieces when you use lamps because it is easier to hide the electrical cords.
Would you prefer a bold animal pattern or a more subtle, feminine scroll? How about using both? Lay down a larger rug with a flat weave and then a bolder patterned rug with a plusher weave over it. Use a smaller rug on top and lay it on the diagonal (see drawing above) for even more dramatic flair.
Fleur de lis lamps are bold and flank the sofa beautifully. To mix it up a little, try the barley twist lamps on the buffet. A simple but stylish floor lamp provides reading light with the accent chair and chest.
When coordinating art, look for similar style, color, or theme. I like that the canvas print and the framed prints are the same subject manner, but done in different styles. The canvas is very realistic, while the prints are graphic and the colors are reversed.
Bold sconces like this Cocobolo from IMAX would be a great accent to this room. The rounded pattern mimics the rosette seen in the pillow fabric.
