William-Sonoma’s Branden living room collection is an interior designer’s dream. Each piece features sharp contours and bold shapes that stand out right away. The Branden Collection isn’t timid. It fills the room with energy, excitement and Parisian flair. It’s a good choice for homes with a modern vibe and a hint of vintage. Antique brass or polished nickel nailheads transport you to the 1920s – an age of luxury and artistic expression. Here are a few ways to make a big impression in your space.
The Branden chair is a great accent piece. Whether you use it as part of the collection or by itself, it always turns heads. In the living room, it looks amazing placed across from a sectional. Or create a part-time reading nook near the far corner of the room. A metal floor lamp beside it adds even more elegance. Toss in a couple of contrasting leather cushions – like black leather against a white chair – to complete the look. Chic seating enhances a bedroom too. Place your chair near a window with a lavish faux fur throw draped gently across it.
Because the Branden living room collection is designed to make a stunning first impression, it’s available in vibrant colors. If you have a dark accent wall – like deep blue, violet or red – use a light colored sofa to create striking contrast. White, gray and ivory all do the trick. Still not expressive enough for your tastes? No problem. With zebra-print fabric you’re sure to turn some heads. Other bold furniture tones include dark red and chocolate, to name a few.
A velvet sofa is supersoft to the touch and sophisticated. Pair it with an antique brass or gold accent chandelier overhead. An artistic silk area rug draws the whole space together, coffee table included. For laid-back elegance, choose Italian distressed leather instead. A range of colors from dark gray to caramel provide lots of ways to personalize your vision.
Casual room layouts often use a sofa along with a few ottomans for seating. Ottomans are easy to move around the room, which is practical for entertaining guests or watching a movie as a family. No matter what material you select, be it gorgeous leather or a strong linen blend, Branden pieces make the space chic. And remember that it’s OK to mix and match colors and materials in the same room. For example, using an upholstered sofa with a pair of white leather ottomans is very fashionable; it adds layers to your room. Do the same thing with decorative pillows of varying shapes and sizes to really express yourself.
A stylish settee is at home pretty much anywhere. In a small apartment, a settee offers elegance for two in a slender package. And since it fits neatly at the foot of most beds, a settee is also a nice choice for refined bedroom seating. Indirect lighting courtesy of a pair of wall sconces creates a romantic atmosphere.
