Here are some living room design ideas for cottage-style furniture pieces that will turn your living space into a cozy sanctuary.

Cottage-Style Seating

A great place to start when creating a cottage-style living room is the layout of your seating. You’ll want to consider the size and configuration of the space. This is to ensure that you don’t go too large or too small with your lounging pieces.

For larger spaces, a deep sofa or L-shaped sectional can provide an especially alluring place to curl up with a book or movie. To keep your relaxing worry-free, consider slipcovers in a machine-washable performance fabric that is more stain- and odor-resistant than cotton.

In smaller cottage-style living rooms, a day bench with rustic accents, such as burlap sides and distressed wood, can maximize space and provide a cozy haven. For homes with few bedrooms, a loveseat sleeper can offer extra sleeping space. Other cottagey choices for seating include wicker accent chairs and swivel rocking armchairs.

Cottage Seating: Upholstery and Accents

You’ll want to go with a restrained palette of subtle, earthy hues for fabrics. Neutral shades of beige and gray are a good base, with blue, sage, or gold for muted pops of color. A crisp white sofa can provide the perfect backdrop for accent pillows. Furthermore, pillows can be changed out with the seasons in a cottage-style living room. Let’s not forget about poufs and ottomans with covers or upholstery in similar styles.

Cottage-Style Tables and Shelving

Coralberry Cottage offers a big gorgeous coffee table with a river wash top that will make quite a statement in a larger space. This piece also provides storage space for ottomans and poufs. For smaller seating areas, custom-made round coffee tables offer functionality without overwhelming nooks and crannies.

Whether you call it a sideboard, server, credenza, or sofa table, this type of piece is ideal for displaying cottage-style accents. Coralberry Cottage is now featuring a sofa table with pretty diagonal wood detailing and glass front and sides and a console/sofa table made of reclaimed wood. You might also consider making your living space, extra functional with a custom knotty beach wood desk that is locally crafted. After all, you just can’t beat a custom cottage-style living room.
