Learn How to Style Living Room Sets from From Beautifully-Curated Spaces
One of the things you can do for a cohesive home design is, of course, to get matching furniture. Matching furniture for living room sets can mean anything from pieces with a similar style, to identical shapes, designs, fabrics, and woods. Living room sets can also mean a sofa and a matching table, a sofa with accent chairs, a set of sofas—any combination of different pieces of furniture that look the same.
Read on to see 19 gorgeous homes and how they use and design different kinds of living room sets.
A cozy grey sofa accompanied by a pair of matching wooden chairs makes for a preppy living room design. Match the rest of your decor accordingly—a blue rug to go with the chairs and wooden side tables.
2. Dark Wood
Add some contrast to bright, big spaces with dark wood details. Ornate wood details on chairs are definitely timeless additions to your living room.
3. Elegant Charm
Bring out the elegance of your space with a living room set of pairs—a pair of sofas and a pair of single chairs. Opt for living room sets in soft pastels and clean whites.
4. Matching Details
Get a Victorian look in your home by choosing a loveseat and an accent chair with the same Victorian or vintage-inspired embossing details. The other pieces of furniture should also go well with living room sets like that have the same vintage vibe.
5. Large Living Room
Large living rooms can benefit from multiple living room sets. Create a second living room space simply by adding another living room set. A sofa, some chairs, and a coffee table and you’re all set! It’s great to create small nooks for added entertaining space.
Luxurious living room sets are perfect for equally luxurious homes. Opt for a living room set that has a subtle way of matching—the fabrics may be different, but something about the set has to match. Like, say, the wooden vintage legs of all the chairs are the same.
Living room sets are also a great option for minimalist living rooms. Clutter doesn’t just mean literal mess, but also a scattered design aesthetic. So getting living room sets of a sofa and a matching accent chair makes for a clean, polished, and modern look.
8. Country Chic
Go for a chic traditional look by picking a living room set with a pair of identical accent seats, plus a side table. You can also use smaller living room sets to create another nook or area aside from your main sofa.
White living room sets are a no-fail choice. They’ll fit right into any living room design, whether modern-themed or traditional. You can also emphasize their similarities or decorate them in different ways.
Living room sets with matching patterns must be used with caution, but they can look great in something like a coastal-themed space. Decorate around patterns with solids and neutrals, and they’ll look perfect.
11. Matching Fabric
Other living room sets don’t just match in terms of style, but also fabrics. So when decorating take even throw pillow designs into consideration as well.
12. Mix and Match
If you have the space for it, you can even get multiple living room sets. Your living room can have a pair of black leather love seats, a coffee table with a similar wood finish, and a large sofa. As long as you decide on a theme and stick to it, mixing different living room sets shouldn’t be a problem.
13. Extra Seating
Larger living room sets give you more seating options. Pick out one that has a large L-shaped sofa and a matching 2-seater so all your seating looks cohesive, and you don’t have to worry about ever running out of space.
14. Cozy Colors
Living room sets with beige accents are always a good idea if you want to make your home cozier. You can even take the matching even further by using another color as accent—beige chairs with lavender accents, and the lavender sofas with peachy beige throw pillows.
Primary colors give the feel of a clean, neutral grey living room set. Pull up the aesthetics of your space by ensuring that all the furniture elements have similar design and accents.
16. GlamorousAn ultra chic living room set uses a dark color, navy blue, for the sofa, then a light grey for the accent chairs. If this is the look you’re space is going for, it’s okay to go crazy over plush fabrics like velvet. This makes the entire living room set even more glamorous.
17. All-Wood House
If you have an all-wood house that’s very close to nature, pick living room sets that complement that. Choose a set that comes in earth tones: brown, black, and a hint of grey. The elements can be designed in different ways to make the earth tones stand out even more.
18. Mid Century
Living room sets sometimes aren’t similar in terms of color or exact design. But you can create a mid century themed space by adding big key pieces that bring out the vintage in the space.
If you have a tendency to overdecorate your space, opt for simple living room sets that are great at adding some cohesion to your decorations.
