Working with Mor Furniture was one of the coolest experiences I've ever had as an interior designer and interior stylist. I had never done anything like it before and it gave me an opportunity to use my skills in a completely different way.
Using the Mor Furniture studio to style this set was really neat! Their team was amazing and ready to help with anything I needed. This is where they store all of their accessories so it was really awesome to see the behind the scenes!
As you read last week, I styled the Miami Dining Set in White, BUT I was fortunate enough to also style a living room set! Let's check it out!
I was given the Rachel Sofa + Love Seat, in the color Hedgey Pepper, to style. Hedgey Pepper is a really pretty gray color with texture and lots of dimension. I am a neutrals girl, so I was happy to work with a gray sofa! I was able to choose any accent furniture from around the showroom to bring into the space, or I was able to bring any furniture and accessories that were my own. I ended up using all furniture from Mor Furniture because I liked the cohesive look that it had.
I started brainstorming and figuring out exactly what I wanted as far as accent pieces. I wanted to frame out the living room, but keep it an open concept space at the same time. I took about four laps around the showroom and ended up finding some really great pieces to add. My list includes...
They also have really great accessories at Mor Furniture, but ultimately I decided to use my own to add my own style into the space. The pillows were important because I wanted them to accent the Rachel Sofa and Love Seat, but not overwhelm them. I chose all different white pillows. Simple, but beautiful! On the coffee table I chose to add florals and greenery because they soften up the space, but I also added a bowl, a book, and a candle. These items are staples for me when accessorizing a coffee table. On console tables, I really love keeping things symmetrical, as well as adding lots of different heights. In this case, I used two matching candle sticks which are fairly tall, and on the opposite end, I used a vase and a plant. It looked like it was missing something, so I added one last item in the center. To finish it off, I hung a beautiful piece of art and it perfectly brought the whole space together!
All of the additional furniture that I chose are great pieces and they all came for More Furniture! The coffee table is often times the focal point in a room, so I made sure to pick a size that fit well with the sofa and love seat. It is round, which I prefer, because it adds a different shape to break up the space a bit. The ottomans are really great sizes, too, and they add extra seating without it looking like there is too much furniture. They are also so comfortable! I love the console table that was chosen for this space because it adds just a little bit of color, but it is subtle and not outstanding. I used a side table that was the perfect height for the sofas and finished it off with a lamp.
