Light-filled lounging...


I love how bright and light filled this space is. The soft light and muted tones create a tranquil, comforting atmosphere, perfect for lounging. Notably absent in this living room: a sofa. These low ottomans covered in plush sheepskins would be just as inviting to lounge and enjoy long conversations.


A focal point in this room is this little corner - simple white floating shelves showing off a collection of art and treasures that tell a story. I love the framed photograph, casually leaning below.


So back to the sofa question - do you think a living room requires a sofa? Could you live without one in your home?

I like the idea of no sofa in the living room but Balazs and I really enjoy sofas so we are all for it:)

I think I need a sofa, especially with kids. But if the kids were older and off to college, I would love to have a streamlined look of just arm chairs and maybe a chaise.

I love all that light. And the branches as the focal point. This room is so beautiful - it looks so cozy too!

Oh, I need a sofa... if not two! I had three once in my living room but we finally gave one away. I love laying on it and blogging or watching television. And that room is very gorgeous.

I think a room can be artfully and functionally arranged without a sofa. I have seen many rooms with only chairs and would like to take the challange myself, for a client - but having said that - I am the wrong person to try, I love sofas!! I have 6 in my home!!

This room is beautifully done. Simple, elegant and cozy. No sofa? Hmm... I think I need a sofa to stretch out on and nestle into.

I love that little corner. It has so much character and probably a lot of stories behind the trinkets and art pieces.
