Give your living space a modern edge with furniture from the Rochester Living Room Collection at west elm. Offered in a wide variety of vibrant hues, you can choose the color that best suits your home decor and personal style. The design of this collection is inspired by the classic Chesterfield assortment but features a tufted back and deep seat. Keep the size of your room in mind and choose a piece that fills the space without crowding it. You can choose from a small loveseat, full-size couch or sleeper sofa for functionality.
If you have a small room, consider selecting a loveseat to provide at least two places to sit. The two removable seat cushions allow for easy cleaning and comfortably seat two adults. You could easily fit this smaller sofa in a library or guest room to give the space a relaxed feel. Consider placing an end table next to the couch to provide yourself or guests with a place to set books or coffee cups. Browse our vast array of accent furniture to find the style ideal for your room. To complement the square design of the sofa, consider a boxy end table with a linear structure for a matching look. If you prefer contrast throughout the room, a round table would do the trick.
For those with larger rooms to fill, consider selecting a matching loveseat and full-size sofa. You can set the furniture up in an L shape to create a space for relaxation. Placing the furniture in an angled formation allows guests to see one another while talking and also view different parts of the room. Try placing a coffee table between both sofas to serve as a place for appetizers and drinks during your next house party. Imagine guests relaxing on your comfortable sofa while sipping wine from beautifully crafted glassware. You’ll be so glad you selected new furniture for entertaining.
An important detail to consider when selecting new furniture is the fabric. Our Rochester Collection comes in a variety of fabric choices, so you can choose one that fits your lifestyle. For those with pets, consider a popular choice like our performance velvet. This fabric is designed to be pet and family friendly. The soft plush feel is comfortable to sit on and the durable design is sure to last many years. Twill is another pet-friendly choice and is designed to resist light stains and soils. To clean, we recommend regular dusting and vacuuming. If you encounter any spills, first blot with a dry cloth and then allow the spot to air dry. If the stain remains, you can use a slightly damp cloth to continue blotting it out.
Once you select the color and size that’s perfect for you, you can move on to the decorating portion of your makeover. Dress up your new furniture with several new throw pillows for color and style. If you choose a neutral colored couch, try adding brightly colored pillows for a contrasting look. Consider the other decor in the room when selecting new pillows and choose a common color for balance. You can make the sofa feel extra cozy by choosing several new blankets as well. Thick blankets made of faux fur or a heavy knit weave are an easy way to add warmth during cold months. Be sure you select several lightweight throws to put out when the temperature rises and all you need is a thin layer to snuggle up.
Pull the entire room together by selecting a patterned rug to coordinate with the sofa. For a well-planned look, consider a pattern that features the color of the couch. You can then use that dominant color to choose matching accent items and wall hangings. Begin your living room makeover by selecting bold new pieces from our Rochester Collection.
