Stylish furniture to update your lounge.

Nature-Infused elegance

“Layer with organic elements combining a linen sofa with wooden armchairs. Add indoor plants and soft earthy hues and textures to create a refreshing, stylish oasis of calm.” – Margaret Steenkamp, head of brand and client service at Woodbender

Modern updates

“Instantly update the look and feel of your lounge with a modern take on classic items – think leather couches or a timeless L-shaped sofa. Opt for clean lines and a comfortable yet sophisticated design. Plush cushions with subtle patterns and elegant, luxurious patterns add texture and comfort. Combine this with coffee or side tables in minimalist designs with glass tops and a metal or wooden base to add a touch of contemporary flair.” – Karin Cawthorne, owner of KARE Johannesburg

Glass art

“Glass art creates visual interest and a touch of luxury. This could be in glass sculptures, vases, or even a large glass wall art installation. Opt for pieces that incorporate different colours and textures to catch the light and create stunning reflections.

“Thoughtful lighting, such as pendant lights with a metallic finish, complement the overall aesthetic. Additionally, add a couple of wall sconces to highlight the glass art pieces in the evening.” – Karin Cawthorne, owner of KARE Johannesburg

“Introduce a mix of textures through plush rugs and tactile throw pillows, and consider a fusion of modern and vintage elements to create a distinctive and captivating ambience that reflects your taste.” – Donna Smith, marketing manager at Créma Design

Add botanical touches through pot plants and patterns in upholstery to complete your look.” – Donna Smith, marketing manager at Créma Design
