The recliner: The stylish, comfortable living room piece you didn’t know you needed
As the days become shorter and the nights colder, it’s in our nature to begin planning for the winter months.
Be sure to make this winter a wonderful time to enjoy your home – and make it the cosiest, most welcoming place imaginable.
A popular piece this season is the oh-so-comfortable (and these days, oh-so-stylish) recliner.
Once you discover how much it can elevate your living space, you won’t want to go through winter without one.
Berkowitz offers a vast range of recliners that don’t compromise on comfort or style. Available in a wide variety of colours, with both leather and fabric options plus a choice of different bases and wooden finishes, you’re sure to find the perfect one to relax on this season.
Here are a few tips for styling your recliner for a contemporary look.
Colour: Ensure the colour of your recliner co-ordinates with the rest of your space. That doesn’t mean it needs to be an exact match for your existing furniture. It doesn’t even have to be the same material.
Co-ordinate around your recliner by using colours from the same family. Loving orange lately? Look for tangerine, coral, and peach shades. A bright coloured recliner can be a statement piece in any room.
Or if you prefer neutral tones, you can always go with the IMG Nordic 21 Recliner Chair in latte, grey, blue or black leather options, currently available for just $1,599 at Berkowitz (RRP $2,799).
Placement: This can be tricky. A poorly positioned recliner can make a room feel lopsided. Be sure to balance your room by placing the recliner opposite another large visual element such as a bookshelf.
Also, make sure you leave enough space behind your recliner. The last thing you want is to not be able to fully recline.
Accessorising: Harness its power! A few touches can transform your light-filled summer space into a warm, cosy winter sanctuary that you won’t want to leave.
This is your opportunity to be bold. Colourful, textured wall art can be a statement in any room. Try adding a large, bright piece above your couch. If wall art is not your thing, swap your blinds for some floor-to-ceiling, sheer curtains to open your space.
Keep a warm, fluffy throw over your recliner for those colder nights where you just want to snuggle up with your favourite TV show and a glass of red. Practical and cosy – you can’t go wrong.
Treat yourself to this indispensable piece for your lounge and make this your most comfortable winter yet.
