Compared to looking for Christmas decor and ornaments, furniture ideas for the holidays can be a bit more tricky.

To create the most celebration-ready home, your decor and your furniture ideas for the holidays should work together and be cohesive. So read on for some inspiration to make your home shine this season!

10 Furniture Ideas For the Holidays To Bring Festive Cheer

Furniture To Match All Your Christmas Decor

It’s about time you start decorating for the Christmas season! My preparations are already in full swing, but I hit a small roadblock recently. I realized, I’ve been paying to much attention to my Christmas tree and other decor, but not my furniture! So my home looked a bit mismatched with festive decor but not-quite-festive furniture. But if you’re thinking I bought brand-new furniture ideas for the holidays, you’re wrong! I just needed the right inspiration to tweak and glam up my existing furniture. So today, I’ll be sharing some of the furniture ideas for the holidays I used for my home this year.

 

1. Festive Dining

This dining nook looks so festive, don’t you agree? But if you take a closer look at the space, you’ll see how the furniture is actually pretty plain! White chairs, a white table, and bright red cushions. One of the more simple furniture ideas for the holidays you can try: match your furniture colors to your decor colors! If you’ve got traditional Christmas red decor, make it consistent with your pillows, cushions, and furniture ideas for the holidays.

With all the sparkle, color, and lights going on with your decor, sometimes neutrals and basics are the best furniture ideas for the holidays. If you’ve got a bright set-up, a black table can add a contemporary touch. Or plain wood can give your holiday set-up a cozy feel.

 

6. Gift Tables

Don’t have space for a tree and presents under? Take a bench or table, set up a small Christmas tree, and place your presents there! It’s unique, creative, and most of all, small-space friendly.

Here’s another way to dress up your furniture ideas for the holidays: tie a ribbon! Or, add a garland, place some sparkle, anything you find festive. I did this to my dining chairs and they look like totally different furniture now!

 

8. All-White

Color is a huge part of the season as well. If Christmas to you means a winter wonderland, then why not go for a chic, all-white theme? It’s so Scandinavian chic.
