Our first tip in our statement furniture guide is to make space for your pieces to shine. In this room, the blue chair and wallpaper blend together to create a cohesive look. This room is full of colour! For the graphic print rug to stand out, the other colours and shapes in the room had to be kept soft. 

Consider the piece you want to bring in and make sure that it will be able to juxtapose the rest of the look. Let it stand out and make a statement!

2. Mix it up

How do you keep a room well-rounded when you’re using statement furniture? You have to mix it up. Decide the theme or style of your statement piece. Once you have a theme, start mixing it up with new elements.

We love the look of this living and dining space. All the elements are light, airy, elegant, and delicate. The red leather chair and footrest create a riot of colour in the neutral room. Don’t be afraid to say it loud and create an unforgettable look in your home. The trick with statement furniture is to have no reservations. Need help pulling off this confidence in your home?

4. Play with patterns

Patterns draw us in with their charm. If you choose a statement piece with a pattern on it, you might be tempted to keep the rest of the room muted in solid tones. Now you’ve stranded the lonely pattern out there on its own and restricted the rest of your room.

Instead, play with patterns. In this living room, a delicate print on the armchair pairs with bold graphic shapes on the sofa cushions. Be playful with scale and colour!

5. Stand back and take in the whole room

Unsure of how it’s all coming together? Sometimes it’s best to take a step back and consider what’s working in your design. Consider what elements of the room jump out to you. It’s easy to lose perspective when you’re decorating your space!

This room is nicely proportioned with its reiterating boxy shapes. The black accents balance out the white room. The warmth and red tones from the wood and the artwork compliment each other perfectly. Step back in your own home and see what the overall impression is. Let it guide you as you bring in your statement furniture.

6. Keep scale in mind

Since we’re talking about balance, our last tip is to help you keep scale in mind in your design. Your furniture should be more or less evenly matched. An overstuffed leather armchair won’t pair well with a dainty glass coffee table. Combine pieces together of similar size. Keeping scale in mind will help you achieve balance in your home, both in your design and in your everyday life.

We hope you enjoyed our guide to going bold with statement furniture! The rooms we looked at all found incredible balance and style with their bold furniture. For more tips on furnishing your home, check out our feature on 7 playful ways to personalize your living room.
