Chic Chaise

The luxurious longue is fit for one (or two!) and creates a prime spot for you to unwind with wine and a page turner at the end of each day. Follow designer Marcus Mohon’s lead and pair your chaise with a handy accent table and a lush, potted plant.

Sleek Sectional

The designers at North Folk Design Co. marry style and function with this expansive and elegant sectional sofa. Use a roomy sectional or modular sofa in your living room to enjoy entertaining and ample lounging for the entire family. Working with a small space? Swap your collection of pint-sized furnishings for a single apartment-sized sectional sofa and circular coffee table. Consolidating your seating to a single sofa will decrease the visual clutter in your tight quarters and create an illusion of a larger space.
