Take a Trip Inside Your Home & Our World.

A Unique View of YourselfA living room should be designed to bring people together. It is a pleasant landscape or portrait that allows you to paint an unique view of yourself and create a space where others want to visit. Your space and the way you choose to decorate it says, “This is me and this is where I want to relax and spend quality time.”

What do you think about your space? Let’s take a take a trip inside your home, your style and your color and our world of options.

Do you live in a one-room studio apartment, a warehouse loft or a challenging small apartment where you need to make use of every inch of your interior? Just remember that your style and selections of color for your canvas make all the difference in the world.

Style and Substance Matters. Let’s look at a few options.

Studio Apartments
If you are moving into a studio apartment, some people choose sleeper sofas. Sometimes there just isn’t enough space for everything like small couches, chairs, tables, bed and other items. A sleeper sofa is a great space saving option as the piece is not only a full-size sofa which allows for maximum seating for guests when they arrive, but it is also a place for you to sleep comfortably when they leave.

Sleeper sofas seat your guests so you can rest!Our sleeper sofa option is unique and allows for maximum seating space in a studio apartment and optimum sleeping arrangements for you. (See Sleeper Sofa option here) Place a couple of storage ottomans in front of the sofa for extra seating and/or storage. If you place tray tables on top of the ottomans, they can double as cocktail tables for you or your guest. When you are ready for bed, move the ottomans to either side of your sleeper sofa, easily transforming them into nightstands. Or slide the ottomans to the end of the sleeper sofa and pull out your favorite book from the storage compartment. Our innovative air sleep system will keep you dozing off to a peaceful sleep night after night.

Keep the colors of the walls and the fabrics of your upholstery complimenting, yet contrasting, as this adds drama to any small room. If you are allowed to paint the walls and considering new apartment furniture – – contrary to popular belief; paint the walls last! It may be a bit harder to do this, since the space is so small. But I recommend selecting your fabric and accessories first and backing into the wall color last. It’s easier to repaint than reupholster …

Warehouse Lofts
Are you redecorating your loft?

Nice airy loftIf you have the luxury of an open and airy space in a warehouse loft, laden with wood or brick as your backdrop, place a couple of small couches facing each other so you can see and interact with your invited guest. You can also add the storage ottomans to double as cocktail tables between the two sofas and keep a good scrabble game and conversation going.

Even if you have limited space in your loft apartment, floating a small couch in the middle of the loft will give you the extra seating you need to watch TV or chat with neighbors that pop in.

Apartment LoftDo you have a roommate, but still want your own space in the living commons? Consider arranging a couple of chairs and a half near a large window away from the floating sofa. Place an accent table or bunching tables between the two chairs. This gives you and your housemate your own places to relax in silent comfort of the warm sun or, share conversation without having to share the small sofa. You can add a storage ottoman to the end of each chair and you both have your own space for magazines, books or laptops.

If you are lucky enough to have the original cement flooring in your loft, make sure you creatively paint it and accent with throw rugs which in and of itself creates separate spaces in a warehouse loft.

Small Apartments
Are you downsizing to a small apartment? Or are you moving from your studio apartment into a tiny bit bigger space to accommodate a new child or relative? Where do you put all the stuff? Even though there are lots of possibilities with both scenarios above, (see studio apartments and warehouse lofts ideas above), small apartments can be the most challenging, but still offer plenty of options.

Simplicity Sofas Brandon CollectionDepending on your particular space, one thing you need to consider in a small apartment is your interior room measurements. There are a lot of options from Simplicity Sofas to fit EVERY need. When it comes to small apartments, our loveseats, small apartment sofas, chairs and full-size sleeper sofas will fit up your narrow stairs or elevator and through any door. Just have a pretty clear idea of where to place the items once they get there.

Space planning is so important. Our apartment sofas are very popular for this scenario. Don’t forget to place a chair in the room and throw contrasting colored pillows on the sofa to make the room come alive. We have all these options and more and welcome your phone call to discuss your particular project.

I have always been a proponent of the “two loveseats facing each other” concept. It allows for maximum space in a small apartment and if you have a roommate or someone else living with you, you each have your own place in the living room to relax without sitting on top of each other or bringing in uncomfortable futons. Forget the futon! And don’t forget, storage ottomans and/or nesting tables which are always popular ideas for decorating and maximizing the small apartment space.

Wall color, upholstery color and properly-sized placement of mirrors and artwork are all important in a small apartment. All, if chosen and placed accordingly will make the room look and feel larger.

Spring into Simplicity Sofas!

Winter coziness has opened its windows to Spring and Summer liveliness and Simplicity Sofas is excited about helping you bring color and functionality to your lifestyle. It’s no secret that the housing market is down right now and people are looking for new and exciting ways to make their existing homes or small apartments their havens.

Adding some color to your life and continuing to create an inviting space that you can enjoy with friends and family during these wonderful seasons will make all the difference.

Simplicity Sofas can help you brighten up your space for the Spring and Summer months and make it bloom inside with easy-to-assemble quality furniture, new fabric selections and colorful slipcovers.

Brandon CollectionIf you’re thinking about purchasing a new sofa, love seat or chair, keep in mind these can become some of your more versatile pieces by adding brightly colored slipcovers.

We took the Brandon sofa, chair and ottoman, covered them in slipcovers of green and blue hues – – bringing the colors of the outdoors in. It made the room cheery and welcoming for the ensuing Spring and Summer months, reflecting the green of the grass and the blue of the sky…

Here’s just a few quick tips –

1. Accent your new furniture by moving some accessories or artwork from one room to another creating a simple, but new look.

2. Paint something: Whether it’s just some old baskets or pots you use for indoor plants and flowers, adding a little bit of color will lighten up your day.

3. Update those dark picture frames with colorful spray paint to match your new decor.

4. If it’s time to clean out the fireplace, do it and try putting a decorative flower arrangement or colorful candles inside instead.

What a difference just a few things can make!
