Sofa: the capital of relaxation

When it’s cold your sofa has always a best friend: a blanket. Find a space in your living room where you can keep some blankets at an easy reach.

Your sofa can always be more comfortable. Throw loads of comfy and colorful pillows on top.

Be careful: your social life can be damaged! Use the sofa with moderation.

A harsh and bright light won’t be good for your decor and especially for your relaxation time. Place your lamps in the best areas and, install a diffuser in your lights if you can, Fill your room with soft glows instead of bright lights. Table lamps that focus the light down will encourage people to sit down and relax.

Moderate light will make your living room feels more intimate and cozy.


Softer materials will make your house more comfortable. That’s a fact. A nice soft and warm carpet will be one of the most inviting aspects of your living room. You can stand on it, sit, kneel and even sit down. It’s up to you.
