I have a really fun room to show you today. The pictures you are seeing were taken in our current rental home (as our new home is still under construction) but this will all be part of the future loft area in our new house. I am excited to have a small bit of the decor for our new home already in place even before we’ve moved in.
This is also exciting because I got to work with a great company for this post, Article provided several of the pieces we will be using in the loft, including this fabulous navy blue sofa.
I am not sure that I realized how much a navy blue velvet sofa would completely make a room, but it is a showstopper. I immediately fell in love with the Sven sofa when I was perusing the Article site. I love the mid-century styling with the tufted cushion and the round bolsters, and the velvet fabric is simply sumptuous. I just had the hardest time deciding between the gray and the blue, because the gray is pretty fabulous too.
In the end, I selected the blue so I could use it in our loft area. Our new home has a large open area at the top of the stairs which will be an upstairs hangout for our kids, so the bright blue has the perfect fun vibe for that space. We will also have space in the basement that will be a hangout area for our older boys, but this upstairs area will be perfect for our daughter and her friends to enjoy. I believe separate space makes for peace among siblings, especially when they all have friends are over, not to mention the significant age gap between our oldest (16) and youngest (9).
The Sven sofa is so luxurious and it was simple to shop for. Article has modern style high-quality furniture that is shipped directly to you. They have lower prices than you would find at other furniture retailers because they don’t have showrooms or salespeople and the online process is easy.
Article offers a shipping fee of $49 (or $19 for small shipments) to your door, no matter how large your order, and you can upgrade to in-room delivery and assembly at checkout. I mean, how nice is it NOT to have to assemble a piece of furniture? They also offer a 30-day satisfaction guarantee so you can try out your new furniture in your home and if you’re not completely happy, they will pick it up and refund the product so you can have peace of mind making a large purchase online.
I was impressed by the quality of the sofa (especially for the price) and how well made it is, not to mention the delivery process was so easy. I already am envisioning how we can use this sofa in other spaces in our new home (like my office!) so it’s perfectly versatile should we decide to use the loft space differently. It even comes in a sectional version which would be great in a living room. The Sven sofa also comes in leather and other fabric options if velvet isn’t your thing.
I had fun styling this space once the furniture arrived in the sitting room off our master bedroom in our current home. This room had been filled with boxes so it definitely is looking much better now. I hung a simple gold mirror on the wall, added a small bench to hold drinks and accessories in front of the sofa and a faux fiddle leaf tree for some greenery in the corner, now it’s a great space to relax at the end of the day.
I ordered the free-standing brass lamp from Article to give some extra light since the loft’s layout means the sofa will be freestanding in the middle of the room. The brass on the lamp coordinates perfectly with the other accents in the room, but it does come in several other finishes too.
To soften the space, I also used the Lanna Ivory Sheepskin throw. This throw is so incredibly soft, it’s genuine sheepskin which is much richer than the readily available faux ones. It’s perfect to snuggle up against on the sofa, and I really like how the ivory breaks up all the dark blue.
For this room, I went with a much more modern, colorful style than in other spaces in our home. The dark blue has an elegant feel which will blend with our other spaces perfectly, but it is still fun and modern enough for soon-to-be-teen girls. The space came together perfectly, I couldn’t be happier with how everything looks.
You will see this furniture again as soon as we’re settled in our new house but in the meantime, it’s nice to have a sitting room to enjoy. Be sure to check out Article, they have a great selection of both furniture and decorative accents for the home.
