Chaise sofas can be great additions to your home as accent chairs or regular sofas. A nice comfortable place to snooze in the day time, chaise end sofas are great favorites as living room furniture. Called as sofa chaise lounge, sofa chaise bed, and chaise end sofa – this is a one stop solution when you need a sofa, a lounge, a day bed or a sofa bed for day time relaxation.
What is a chaise sofa? What is so special about it? When the sofa is extra long like a chaise so that it can support your legs easily when you stretch on it but still has back supports like a sofa, it can be called a chaise sofa. They double up as lounges as well sofas – allowing you to sit and relax or lie down and sleep as effortlessly.
Chaise sofas can be made of wood frame or metal frames and can be as low as a futon or can look like normal sofas. These are slightly bigger in size than normal sofas but then you have to give allowance for a furniture item that can multi-task so nicely! When timeless elegance and chic sophistication are needed, these chaise sofas can fit the bill.
Here you can see some lovely looking chaise sofas. These are images of chaise sofas from the famous Italian furniture manufacturer, Fama. Available in a variety of styles, you will be hard-pressed to know which will look best in your home. Unlike the futon which needs to be opened up, these have wide and deep seats so an adult can sleep easily without extra work.
Chaise sofas have reversible side chaises. So you can choose which side to create the chaise portion or put it in the center also as seen here. The classic love-seat sofa with winged backs in brocade upholstery is bigger than usual and serves as chaise sofa in the living room beautifully when paired with an attachable ottoman foot rest.
Look at the modern minimalist style chaise sofa in a simple couch pattern with detachable backrests that support loose cushions and pillows as seen in the images here. You can create a sofa with both the backrests in place or remove one to have more room as a bed. Don’t you think you will love to have some chaise sofas in your home as accent accessories?

We love creative interiors! Creativity is a matter of practice, like many other things in life. There’s no doubt that anyone can be creative, as long as he or she looks for less ordinary approaches. When we first saw the Nussberg Penthouse interior, in Vienna, we thought that the client really wanted “a house to remember”. And that’s exactly what Beef Architekti (the studio responsible with the decoration) managed to deliver to their client. Exquisite, playful and with a touch of rustic elegance, the Nussberg Penthouse, with its bohemian setting (an old Vienna hotel with an exterior spiral staircase), seeks to offer a unique living experience, by blending the natural feel with the contemporary comfort.
The penthouse, located on a hill, overlooks the wonderful city. The apartment stands out, due to its “excess” of brightness. You can enjoy wonderful moments, watching the sun at dusk or drink a cup of coffee in the morning, on the terrace. Wood floorings, chairs and different shades of brown, create an environment of natural and almost cottage-like inspiration. The paintings on the walls and the colourful rugs, though, transform it into a more interesting and contemporary home. The result: a playful, creative and bright modern interior.
If you prefer simple designs, nothing like any glamorous or ultra-modern furniture, then you might find this collection appealing. What furniture is needed in an ordinary living room? In most cases, a sofa, a coffee table, a couple of armchairs perhaps, a cupboard or simply a few shelves on the wall, and occasionally a few chairs and a bookcase. Simple, yet cozy – isn’t it! You can however decorate the living with a fireplace or just with a colorful carpet. All of the suggested design ideas follow a line of simplicity in the interior.

Having a combined living room and dining space is something that’s on the trend nowadays in most of the houses; when these two spaces combine, they give a cozy feeling and make the place more spacious without having a lot of separators. We present you here very nice ideas on how to combine your dining space with your living room in a chic, modern style that utilizes the space and makes it decorative. Everything depends on the space that you have; if you have a large space, then you can get a complete living room that includes a large sofa in any shape like the L-shaped one, and arm chairs, stools, and ottomans along with tables. Beside this living room, you can add a dining set that is composed of four or six chairs according to the space. Add the dining set in a space that gives it its own style and makes moving around it easy. It is really beautiful and decorative when you match the color of the dining set with the living room, or with the overall ambiance, or when you use colors to make a nice color contrast. Try not to make a mess as much as you can; store your stuff in any drawers or shelves found in the living room to leave the space neat.

A great collection of small living room designs by Colin & Justin. Colin & Justin are Scottish interior designers and television presenters.
At present we’re working on new ideas in Canada where we recently bought a downtown Toronto penthouse. We’re also getting used to being back in Britain after our exploits on ITV’s ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here’ and have just completed 24 episodes of ‘The Sixty Minute Makeover’, also for ITV. The premise? Three rooms transformed in precisely one hour. Sounds crazy, perhaps, but it’s all in the choreography and of course careful pre planning! It’s a wonderful show with which we’re proud to be associated.

Brazilian architect Gisele Taranto in collaboration with art curator Mara Fainziliber and lighting designer
Maneco Quinderé created an interior called Living Room of an Art Collector, as part of Casa Cor, an important event of national architecture and decoration held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The brief of the project was to create a place where tradition meets contemporary decoration, in a pleasant manner. Here is small description from Gisele Taranto: “Ceiling, floor and walls were kept as originally and received pieces of art and designed furniture. The biggest challenge was to show that it is possible to add contemporaneity to any historical room, giving emphasis to both. Pieces of renowned and new promising artists, national and internationally, were used in the space.” Even though this massive, 1000 square foot living room is not something one could easily recreate, some of the decorating elements found here are beautiful, practical and inspiring.

Here we’re looking at décor with a slightly industrial edge, or a subtly masculine air about it, where plain robust fabrics rule on furniture with metal detailing, surrounded by interesting worldly knickknacks and extensive book collections.

Here’s another example that still proves that having a small apartment doesn’t mean you won’t be able to get everything you need. This is a smart design of a small Swedish apartment; the apartment literally provides its resident with everything; nothing’s forgotten or missed out. Another thing that is really taken care of is the decorative side; things aren’t piled up in the apartment in a messy way. A high decorative taste is seen through the design, and practical furniture is used to supply all necessary stuff without occupying much space. The first thing to notice about this apartment, which is essential and smart, is that the color white was used on all of the walls. White walls are necessary in small apartments because they make the overall look bright and give an illusional feeling that the place is wide. First off, the living area includes a beautiful L-shaped sofa that comes in a solid color and some printed pillows are thrown on it to give a colorful look. A printed rug, a portrait, and a small table with a flower vase on it are put to complete the look of a small living room. A wall shelving unit is present taking the whole height of the wall which is really smart. These shelves provide a lot of space for storage. You can store a large number of books, or other stuff in there.

This idyllic house in Cadaqués, a pretty town on the Costa Brava with stunning views of the sea, is the summer retreat of Yves and Marie, who each year leave their busy lives in Toulouse, France, and spend their time here in rustic simplicity and peaceful contemplation of the spectacular scenery. Their home, designed by the Catalan architect José Luis Aloso Eijo, is essentially two large glassed in white cubes — one for the children's and guest rooms, the other the living room and master bedroom. A patio joins the two spaces, and the use of simple natural materials and clever sliding walls keeps things airy and relaxed. Beautiful and magical.
