Layered Fall Living Room

Mix burlap and black velvet upholstery on bergere chairs to add texture to a room in a dramatic and unexpected way.

Layering fabrics, patterns and colours turns any space into a snug refuge from falling temperatures outdoors. An on-trend grey wall colour and soft grey striped rug underfoot add to the cosy feeling, while unfitted windows keep the space from becoming fussy or visually cluttered.
