Fall into hygge heaven – how to decorate a cozy autumn living room?

The cozy autumn living room is made up of tiny elements: a pinch of refreshing colors, a scoop of gentle warmth, a heap of hygge, and an intimate ambiance. Enjoy all of this while lounging in the soft embrace of a sofa!

The relaxed decorative pillows balanced on the armrests complete the Bebé sofa's sympathetic look.

The heart of the living room

As the name suggests, the living room is all about living life to the fullest – and this comfy seat is sure to be your one-way ticket to relaxation!

The Doric coffee table is made of limestone, which has been used as a building material since ancient times.

A safe place for your precious treasures

Everyone knows that in order to relax completely, you need to be as carefree as possible. So move the extra tea cups, books, and crochet hooks out of your hands onto the coffee table and concentrate on just relaxing! The Doric coffee table by Danish GUBI will transform your living room into the ultimate chill zone. Designed by GamFratesi, the elegant table borrows both its majestic name and elegant form from ancient Greece.
