There are standard furniture pieces required for every room in your home in order to make the rooms comfortable and functional. A bedroom needs, of course, a bed and storage for clothes and personal items. A living room needs seating, lighting and tables. A dining room obviously needs a table and chairs. But there are other pieces of accent furniture that will add personality and interest to these rooms.
X marks the spot with a trendy x bench
An x bench is a small bench or stool that features legs in a crossed “x” shape. Some styles feature chrome or metal legs with an upholstered seat. This gives your room a modern, somewhat industrial look. You can also choose a fully upholstered bench for a soft and traditional look. These benches can be placed at the foot of the bed to hold pillows and robes during the night. Add one to your entryway to provide a place to sit and tie your shoes or place one in front of a vanity as a comfortable spot to apply makeup.
Pouf be gone? We think not.
A pouf is a round, upholstered ottoman. This fun little piece of furniture is very popular right now and is available in every type of fabric imaginable. Sturdy leather poufs can be adorned with nail head trim for a masculine place to prop your feet in a den or library. How about a fluffy pouf upholstered in faux fur to add some drama to a bedroom? A Moroccan pouf will provide an ethnic flair to a family room or a glitzy gold pleather pouf in a guest room will delight your overnight visitors.
Hard working storage ottoman
Ottomans have become the real workhorse in a room. They can be used as a coffee table, additional seating or provide a place to rest weary feet. They come in all shapes and sizes. But the best ottoman of all is one that does double duty as a storage unit. These ottomans often have a hinged lid that lifts up and provides lots of deep storage for family room necessities such as books, games, remotes and blankets. Other styles offer built in trays that revert to a solid top. They are so versatile and can be used to serve drinks or snacks but also provide additional seating when necessary.
Add a little bit of personality to your home with any one of these furniture items that are functional and fun at the same time.
