1. Seek comfort and style in the living room

At the heart of every home is the living room, a place to relax after a busy day and enjoy some much-needed downtime. It's also a social hub, a space to unite with friends and family, so it needs to strike the perfect balance between creating a space you feel truly relaxed in, and showing off your sophisticated style credentials at the same time. Comfort and style are both key.

The stand-out design from the new Sofa.com collection for luxury and comfort is the Larsen sofa. 'For Larsen in particular, we’ve designed it to have all the sleek, uniquely angled lines which create an understated point of difference from a regular sofa,' explains Patricia Gibbons, from the design team at Sofa.com

'The aim is about adding contemporary style and subtle statement design to your space without commanding the room. It marries modern silhouettes with Scandi-inspired design.'

With wide-set seats designed with ergonomic lumbar support, this sleek design is made for extreme comfort. Available in a wide range of irresistibly tactile upholstery choices, including  'Slubby Cotton', 'Textured Boucle' and 'Brushed Linen Cotton'– it's easy to create a design that reflects your personal style perfectly.

To add depth to the contemporary design, dress with layers of comforting cushions, tactile throws, soft knits and faux furs to make it feel all the more alluring during the colder months.

2. Be at one with nature in a space for entertaining

This interior trend mixes modern with classic design, layering texture and elements of nature to create a serene space for any room.

The Scandi ethos celebrates the understated beauty of clean lines and thoughtful designs that won't overwhelm the surrounding decor. The new Aspen dining table delivers on all counts. The solid oak frame offers sleek contemporary design that's robust yet refined. It also offers the option to extend as and when needed, to suit all dining occasions as we entertain more from home.

Another key aspect of the contemporary twist on this laid-back design trend is the use of colour. Injections of rich colour enliven the neutrals such as canvas white and natural wooden textures, but those colours are all derived from nature – such as invigorating green and calming blues, inspired by land and sea. The richness of the Olive green cotton matt velvet on these Arabella dining chairs invigorates the natural appeal of the oak table.
