The best seating for modern rustic living rooms

In this blog we will be looking at seating options to create the perfect rustic living room. The brown leather sofa has been a living room staple for hundreds of years - and now (luckily) there are so many different styles and shades to choose from, you can't possibly fail to find the perfect one for your room!

First, we suggest you have a think about what furniture pieces are most essential in your living room - consider a rustic TV stand like the handmade Beam cube - which by the way, can be crafted to bespoke sizes making it the perfect choice to fit in a nook or cranny in an older cottage or farmhouse! A coffee table is also needed in pretty much every living room - if you don't have much space for storage then consider something like a trunk coffee table or one with a shelf below and/or with drawers so it will have a bit of room for some living room storage! However, if you do have space then a console table or a wooden sideboard is a great living room addition.

Pairing a brown leather sofa with reclaimed wood furniture is a perfect combination - the smell and the feel of natural soft leather complement the beauty and uniqueness of rustic wood furniture. Depending on the shape and size of your room you can consider a 3 seater leather sofa with a small armchair to pull up to the fire or a smaller 2 seater sofa with one or two wingback armchairs. Go big in larger rooms by choosing a 3 seater and a coordinating 2 seater, plenty of room to spread out and relax on when your are watching TV or have guests over.....you can also add additional armchairs..... the combinations are endless and restricted only by what space you have available!

We can't talk about sofas without a mention of the classic Chesterfield style sofa. A Chesterfield sofa is an investment piece of furniture that will be with you for years to come with this timeless design blending effortlessly with a rustic as well as a modern theme. This leather sofa is incredibly versatile, it will mix and match with modern or classically styled armchairs.

It's very on-trend to mix and match furniture and introduce accent colours for additional features in your room. You can add pops of colour by bringing in throws and scatter cushions. This will add an extra level of comfort and cosiness to a leather sofa.

For contrast, you can blend a more modern sofa with the rustic furniture in your living room. The rusted orange colour of the sumptuous Chestey velvet sofa works perfectly with the various tones of wood that feature in good quality wooden furniture.
