Urban Living Room Collection
Relaxing, homey, inviting are just some of the words that come to your mind after checking out the Urban Living Room Collection. This collection of seating furniture – which includes sofas, love seats, sectionals, sleepers, chairs and ottoman – features elegant lines, plush upholstery and a generally unpretentious style that make them a good stationary element to a contemporary living room design theme. Since the seating furniture is the focal point in any living room space, the Urban Living Room Collection is an ideal choice for you if you wish to add a homey atmosphere into your living room while keeping it looking stylish and sophisticated at the same time.
Just like our other collections, the west elm Urban Living Collection follows contemporary style that is both versatile and easy-going, while still being stylish at the same time. Most of the seating furniture has low backrests and arms but compensating for this are the loose, straight cushions for both the back and the seat. The cushions have a sink-right-in comfort with their polyester or down fill that is so comfortable that they’ll make you want to relax and lounge around longer. Like most contemporary styles, the Urban Living Room Collection pieces have low upholstered bases and deep seats, which in some items include the option of having extra deep models. Your choices for the upholstery is leather and fabric, with the leather options available in shades of saddle, tobacco, fog, verdant and aegean blue. Upholstery fabric choices, on the other hand, are available in more than 80 different shades in some models and in varying textures and weaves.
Among the items in the Urban Living Room Collection, the sofas and the love seats are the most versatile owing to their size. These pieces of seating furniture will very likely fit even in smaller living rooms, while they also work well in average to larger-sized living spaces if you pair them with chaises, armchairs and ottomans, which can all come from the same collection if you like. Keep in mind though, that unlike modern style seating furniture that generally has a sleeker design, contemporary style tends to have larger dimensions. Before purchasing a sofa or any other furniture piece in the Urban Living Room Collection, it is a good idea to check its dimensions and compare it to the available space in your room.
Sectionals are a good choice if you have a large living room area where you’d love to entertain friends or hang out with your family. With their larger size, sectionals give your living room a grander feel, yet still cozy because of the close seating arrangement. The Urban Living Room Collection includes two to four-piece sectionals with different layout choices: L-shaped, U-shaped and symmetrical. L-shaped sectionals, which include a chaise at one end, are ideal if you want your seating layout to face a single focal point such as a flat-screen TV or a large window that opens up to a garden. U-shaped sectionals are perfect for face to face conversations with your guests. You are more likely to set U-shaped and symmetrical sectionals in a corner against a wall, but there's no set rule at all. Put yours in the middle of the room if you like. Consider too, that the L-shaped sectional is either right-facing or left in reference to the chaise-end of the furniture.
Whether you are purchasing a large sectional or a smaller sofa or love seat, it is always best to take into consideration the space where the seating furniture will go and the size of the furniture pieces. When taking measurements, make sure to factor in the space that you think you will need to be able to move freely around the furniture. Urban Living Room Collection pieces have deep seating, so make sure to double check this dimension as well. It is also a good idea to check the height of the seat and arms in relation to your center and side tables.
