Florals are Back! Here’s How to Add a Floral Armchair into your Living Space

Florals are set to be a huge interior design trend for 2023, and with spring in full bloom, a floral armchair is an ideal choice for adding a touch of elegance and colour to any room.

However, styling a floral armchair can be a challenge, as it requires careful consideration of colours, patterns, and textures to ensure that the overall look is balanced and visually appealing. In this article, we will explore some tips and tricks for styling a floral armchair and suggest some of our favourites from Designer Sofas 4U to help you take advantage of the trend.

Choose the Right Colour Scheme

The first step in styling a floral armchair is to choose the right colour scheme. This will depend on the colours in the floral pattern of the chair. If the chair has a bold and colourful pattern, you may want to opt for a neutral colour scheme for the rest of the room to avoid overwhelming the space. On the other hand, if the chair has a more subdued pattern, you can play with bolder accent colours in the room.

Mix and Match Patterns

When it comes to styling a floral armchair, mixing and matching patterns is key. However, it is important to do so in a way that doesn't clash or overwhelm the room. One way to do this is to choose one dominant pattern for the armchair, and then mix in smaller-scale patterns in complementary colours. For example, if your armchair has a large-scale floral pattern, you can add smaller-scale polka dots or stripes in coordinating colours for throw pillows or a rug.

For example, this stunning Chesterfield Queen Anne High Back Wing Chair in Black Velvet is a perfect choice when it comes to mixing colours and textures. Upholstered in a luxurious patiche velvet, the elegant chair features subtle floral detailing making it a perfect stand-out piece in your home. Ideal for contemporary homes, or homes that want to add a small pop of floral detailing, the chair is handmade in Britain using the highest grade materials including hardwood exposed legs and button detailing.

Add Texture

Adding texture to a room can help to make it feel more cosy and inviting. This can be achieved by incorporating materials such as velvet, faux fur, or woven textiles. When styling a floral armchair, consider adding a cosy throw blanket or textured accent pillows in coordinating colours to create a layered and inviting look.

Balance the Room

When styling a floral armchair, it is important to consider the overall balance of the room. This means making sure that the armchair doesn't overwhelm the space, and that it is balanced by other furniture and accessories. One way to achieve this is to place the armchair in a corner of the room with a side table and lamp to create a cosy reading nook.

A hugely popular item is our Sherlock Buttoned Fireside Chair in a Renaissance Danza Pink and Duck Egg. A sumptuous pink shade with duck egg floral detailing on the sides, it’s a highly decorative and stand-out piece in an eye-catching pink shade. When choosing to opt for this chair, it’s important to keep the rest of the room or area quite neutral so that it doesn’t look too brash or garish. Perfect for adding a focal point to the room, this chair is only £484 but does come in a range of attractive colours.

Use Accessories to Tie the Look Together

Accessories are an important part of styling any room, and they can be especially helpful when styling a floral armchair. Use accessories such as artwork, rugs, and curtains in coordinating colours and patterns to tie the look together. For example, you can hang artwork on the wall behind the armchair that features similar colours to the floral pattern, or choose a rug with a complementary pattern and colour scheme.

Styling a floral armchair requires careful consideration of colours, patterns, textures, and balance. By following these tips and tricks, you can create a beautiful and cohesive look that adds a touch of elegance and colour to any room.
