Moroccan Seating For A Cozier Living Room

17th Jan 2014

The Moroccan style of interior decoration brings a touch of class, elegance and opulence that no other style can single-handedly manage to bring to your home or workspace. Applying this style to your living room is really easy since all you need to keep in mind is the aesthetic appeal and the comfort that you provide to those who enter this Oriental retreat.

The common furniture items that you would expect in a living room are some seating, a table or two, and lighting fixtures. The gadgets that you would like to use for your recreation may be placed as per your preferences. And, of course, there are the add-ons like the curtains, the carpets and such that you may or may not use, since they are not strictly necessary to the look or use of the room. For instance, an ornate chest of drawers would do wonders to enhance the overall look of your living room while adding invaluable storage space, but it is not as necessary in a living room as seating like a Moroccan ottoman Pouf.

You can begin with deciding whether you want one huge Moroccan chandelier in the center of your room or sconces along the wall or in the corners. Would you rather have pendant lights in diagonal corners of the room with intricately patterned Moroccan table lamps lighting up the remaining corners? Each kind of fixture has a different appeal and use.

Another necessary piece of furniture in a living room is a table. Moroccan tables are intricate pieces of art that are extremely versatile in the uses they can be put to. You can use them as side tables to hold your table lamp or as coffee tables. They are ornate enough to grace an art museum. The versatility of Moroccan style décor is reflected very well in these tables.

The seating can be Moroccan pouffes or Ottomans that are color coded or of various hues in bright contrast. You will be spoil it with the number of options that are available in the seating that Moroccan décor offers. There are hand-dyed leather Ottomans that make for comfortable seating for one person or two. They may be soft or sturdy. There are some that can be used for storage or as a table too. Besides they are safe for kids since these items are never too far from the ground and you don’t need to worry about a child taking a tumble from the top of a pouf. Originally these pouffes were intended as footrests. Even now they do serve the purpose if you are using normal height chairs along with the ottomans. In this case these Moroccan pouffes will offer great comfort to your guests by allowing them to rest their sore feet while reclining comfortably in the chairs.
