Use bean bags for a variety of textures in your living room

In general when we are talking about interior design the most important thing is for your furniture to go well together. However, furniture with different textures can sometimes seem a bit boring. That is exactly why, you shouldn’t be afraid to experiment every once in a while and use textures which compliment each other well. For example a sofa made from a soft fabric can go perfectly with a leather bean bag. Not only are you going to have a variety of textures, your living room will get a classy, elegant feeling, because of the leather.

Enhance your living room’s color palette

Even the most minimalistic interior design needs a color palette. Whether you like to stick to the more neutral tones, or you like to experiment with bold colors, a bean bag can be a great compliment to your overall palette. For example, if you have chosen brighter colors for your accessories, such as lamps and side tables, a bean bag can be the same color as your sofa. On the other hand, you can let this extravagant and modern piece of furniture be the centerpiece of the room. If you have furniture in neutral tones, but want to incorporate some color, choose a bean bag in a bright color or a lively print. That way you will give your living room some character and you will have a comfortable chair you can relax in

Experiment with shapes

The round bean bag is a classic. However, there are other shapes out there, which you can use to your advantage. There are square bean bags, pear shaped bean bags and even bean bags which look like a bed. The question is what do you need in your living room? If you are looking for a place where guests can just sit and relax, then you can try the square one. On the other hand, if you want a piece of furniture where you can lay down after a long day and relax, you can try the pear shaped or the large ones. Either way, the shapes of the bean bag can compliment your living room in a great way.

Create a reading nook with comfortable bean bags

If you have a large living room, you can have space for watching TV, as well as a reading nook. And using bean bags in your reading nook is a great idea. Select a spot, place a carpet on the floor and choose two bean bags, in which you are going to be able to sit back with a good book and relax. Furthermore, add a small shelf for all your books or magazines, which has to be at an arm’s length, so that you never have to leave the comfort of your bean bag. You can also add a small side table in between the bags so that you have a surface to place your phone or drink on. Trust us, this nook will become your new favorite place in your home.

Create a boho interior

If you are a fan of the boho style, than you should definitely get a bean bag. Its different shapes, forms and textures are the perfect way to enhance an unforgettable boho decor. Choose a bean bag in a complimenting shape, fabric and color and place it in the corner of the room next to the window, or next to the sofa. Make sure to add a beautiful plant next to it. Framed art hanging on the wall above it will definitely be a plus. Now all that’s left to do it enjoy your boho style interior.
