Fantastic Seating: Cozy Up to the Fireplace

With the holidays and winter in full swing, where better to relax after a long day than by a crackling fire? You can snuggle up with your pet, a good book, a glass of wine, maybe a few friends or loved ones.

Naturally, this is tough to do if you have not organized a seating arrangement to your fantasies. They key is to take part your fireplace: do not think of it as an attachment that blends into the walls, but a focal point to integrate in the design. If your fireplace is in a seemingly awkward spot, you still want to integrate some type of seating to maximize its inclusion to your property. On the lookout for a few ideas? Have a look at the following photos and revel in your fireplace in comfy fashion this year.

Arrange seating around your fireplace to ensure everybody who sits in the area is able to enjoy it. Think of the fireplace as yet another seat in the design: It should be able to engage with all those who surround it.

Wish to sneakily add in more seating in a less than clear style? Replace a typical coffee table having a oversized ottoman. It is going to still carry the identical effect for a coffee table — ground the center of the design — and doubles as extra fireside seating when you have guests.

Have a the luxury of a chaise longue amongst your own decor? Pull it up close to the fireplace. You’ll never regret its positioning after a very long moment.

Wherever your fireplace is located, try to integrate seating nearby. This fireplace is in a somewhat unusual spot near the outside of the kitchen, however a chaise provides seating while also acting as a divider between the kitchen and living room.

Set your dining table near the fire so that your loved ones or dinner guests are warm and toasty during their meal.

Fireplaces in the bedroom should also come equipped with seating. Switch on a holiday movie for the kids and escape to this spot for a much-deserved break.

If you’ve got the room, try to slip the two-seater arrangement in your design. It’s a terrific way to produce an intimate seating arrangement ideal for conversation. With space at the end of this table, one can not help but comprise two chairs face-to-face at the fireplace.

Here is a fantastic example in the bedroom, with a comfy ottoman to rest your tired feet.


This living room design is excellent for entertaining, as it generates different seating areas for mingling.

Of course, simply piling an assortment of ottomans near the bottom of the sofa will get the job done also. The whole purpose is enjoying the heat of the fire in comfy fashion, which appearance certainly makes it easy!
