Have you ever felt so much in love with a certain piece of furniture that you just had to make it part of your interior no matter the style? I have, and it’s most extraordinary. Most of my friends have been through similar experiences, but I never thought I’d join their club until a corner lounge was included in my décor. It all started when my family began growing, so we needed all the comfort we could get without compromising space (living in a studio apartment didn’t make things easier). After experimenting with separate sofas varying in sizes, my husband and I figured we’d use up the space we have prudently if we fill up the walls better.
It wasn’t that difficult to find the modern corner lounge that best suited our home since the choices are vast, differing in style and material. When I say I love it, it’s not just me, but it’s the kind of love my family and I share as it’s helped us socialise more and make spending quality time bonding over cuddles and hugs an essential part of our day to day life (if you ask me, every family needs to have a corner lounge!). The power in this furniture design lies in making the room feel united, all tied together in a spot, a real focal point. Besides, it’s saved us from buying more furniture in the likes of ottomans as it’s spacious enough to allow one to rest feet up (not to mention the countless naps you’d get to take) without feeling lack of commodity while other family members have the space to do so as well.
Since we’ve never been that much of connoisseurs of design and playing with interior decorating, the modern corner lounge has actually helped us with our home makeovers. Whenever we feel like it’s time for some change, all we have to do is think of the colours, patterns and materials that would work out well when combined with the lounge, and voilà – easy makeover. We love it, our kids love it, and even our pets love it, so whenever we watch films it seems like we got our own home cinema (popcorn time has never been this fun before).
I bet I share the same opinion as any other owner of a corner lounge in thinking I should have considered making this piece of furniture part of my home much earlier. It’s also helped us in situations where surprise guests had to stay over the night for a sleep over as we lack a guest-room, so it’s the type of furniture fit for every occasion. If you feel like your home could do with some change, my suggestion is to include a corner lounge in the picture.
