When it’s time to cozy up to a fire with a book, don’t be afraid to let your sofa spoon you.  If you really need one more reason to lounge around on the couch for longer, just add the soft, inviting texture of a velvet sofa to the mix and you’ll never want to get up.

06. Round It Out

For a balanced and harmonious look, accent the sofa with at least a few other curved or round elements. The second most important aspect of a living room is the coffee table so it’s important to be thoughtful in selecting one. Make sure the table has soft edges, it should pair nicely.

07. Take It Outside
