Go Bold With 15 Stunning Statement Pieces For Your Living Room

Home Edit

How bold does one go with their living room design?


Most of us run from the thought of anything too bold, too daring, or too loud. Let’s face it, when it comes to designing our living rooms, we mostly play it safe.  And one can't be judged for that - going bold is a risk and the fear is that you spend your hard earned euros on a space that never looks quite as fabulous as it did on Pinterest.


So how do you go bold with confidence?  You choose pieces that are bold without being garrish.  Think rich colours, daring prints and patterns, mixed metallics and an overall departure from your everyday while still being incredibly sophisticated. 


So if you're ready to take the plunge into bold living room design, then sit back and enjoy the scroll from start to finish!





#1 The Swell Three Seater Sofa from Normann Copenhagen is designed to stand out and impress. Structured with a strong wooden plywood frame and Nozaq springs, the Swell lives up to its name with rounded cold foam bolsters that are super soft and plush.  A great way to add a bold design touch without needing to go bright on the colour.

#2 For a statement piece with bold colour and style, there’s nothing like the West Elm Bradford Sofa. This hand upholstered sofa is inspired by the classic Chesterfield, and brings its own superbly modern twist with its sleek silhouette, and pecan wood legs.  Bask in the deep jewel toned blue, run your hand across the soft velvet finish and add a level of sophistication that most sofas can't achieve.

#6 What's a bold & sophisticated living room without your own drinks trolley?  The shiny gold finish makes it a stand alone design feature, while you can style it to perfection to suit your decor.  Think dried citrus slices, a stunning bottle of craft gin & some fancy tonic.  Or stick to drinks on the lower deck and a selection of candles and pampas grass up top.
