A couple of years ago, I chose a couch from Article for a client (aka my little brother 😉 ), and I was so very impressed. I was a little hesitant about ordering furniture that I couldn’t touch beforehand (they sell exclusively online), but their low delivery price and easy return policy made it a no brainer… and the couch ended up being perfect: the quality, the style, and the price were incredible. So I began looking at Article when I was thinking about a new couch for my living room, and was so pleased to find this sectional and to partner with them on this project. The Cube is a very generous (both deep and wide) modular sofa, sold either as a three-piece set or piece by piece (ours is two ends, two middles, and one corner to make the giant L… and I do mean giant).
Embrace warm wood tones. The warmth of wood helps to balance out the cool tones often found in gray, so embrace wood where you have it. If you have wood paneling or wood beams overhead, install an eye-catching light fixture to draw the eye upward. If you have wood built-ins, style them with colorful, curated accessories to ensure they’re a focal point.
Choose a cozy area rug. Don’t underestimate the power of a comfy area rug. Sometimes a little fluff underfoot is the difference between a brilliant design that’s welcoming and lived-in and an almost-brilliant design that’s cold and lifeless. Rugs in soft, neutral tones, like cream and white, work well with gray sectionals.
Some choccies on the pillow and bottled water (or wine!) in-conjunction with possibly even some mini toiletries as a little 'welcome gift' shall be a lovely surprise for any house visitor. Hopefully this would mean they go to bed relaxed also happy ‐ not counting sheep.
