Design Tips and Considerations


  • Assess Your Space: Measure your living room and consider the layout. This will help you determine the size and placement of new furniture.
  • Define Your Lifestyle: Reflect on how you use your living room. Do you entertain often, or is it a family-centric space? This will guide your furniture choices.
  • Choose Quality: Look for durable construction materials and techniques. Solid hardwood frames and robust joinery are indicative of quality craftsmanship.
  • Focus on Comfort: For seating, consider ergonomics and cushion quality. High-resiliency foam ensures lasting comfort.
  • Coordinate Styles: Ensure your new pieces complement each other and your existing decor. Consistency in style creates a cohesive look.
  • Accessorize Thoughtfully: Enhance your new furniture with appropriate accessories like rugs, throw pillows, and art. These elements can tie the room together.


Whether your preference leans towards the timeless elegance of Brentwood Classics, the bespoke charm of Decor-Rest, or the sustainable luxury of Palliser, your redesigned living room is set to become a true reflection of your personal taste and a sanctuary for your daily life. The key to a successful living room redesign lies not only in selecting the right pieces but also in crafting a harmonious environment that perfectly aligns with your personal style and practical needs. These esteemed brands offer a plethora of options to ensure your living room transformation is both stylish and functional, catering to your unique lifestyle.
