New sitting area

If I had one wish about our house that I thought it couldn’t fulfill, it was an extra place to sit in the livingroom. I don’t know about you, but I just love it when I see interiors with chairs on random places. The idea of having multiple seating options, I just adore that. And so while our livingroom was quite straightforward – just a rectangular shape – I thought I would just have to accept the fact that this wasn’t possible. But it turns out; it was!

You might know our SVALNAS shelves already. As I found these 2 chairs in a thriftstore, I suddenly saw an opportunity I had to take. And yes, a dream came true when these chairs looked so good next to these shelves. And because these chairs are not bulky at all, our livingroom doesn’t feel cluttered through the addition of two extra chairs.

These are called directors chairs and I love the combination of the chrome base, with the worn leather. They work really well next to the softness of the bamboo shelves. I added a sheepskin for some extra texture but they are very comfortable as is.

In that same thriftstore I also found this amazing Persian runner. I feel it really adds to this seating area, as it could look pretty random without a rug. The white base keeps it looking fresh and it matches well with our other rugs.

So as I said before, I have always loved multiple seating areas in a room. I’m so happy we are part of the club now! Added fun is that it’s not just for looks, we actually enjoy sitting here. Straight across from each other gives an intimate feel, wether it’s with my husband or 3-year old daughter. Hoping we can sit here with many more people after this quarantine ♥

So yeah, very happy with this addition to our livingroom! The layered rugs, the extra seating option and those cool vintage chairs. I love it :)

Hope you have a wonderful day, stay safe ♥

Love, Marrit
