6. Comfy floor cushions

Floor cushions are an oft-overlooked seating option when decorating an interior living space. Ideal for comfort, and highly versatile, these brilliant objects can be added and removed where necessary, creating a practical and cosy environment.

When we think of seating, we often picture sturdy and reliable timber furniture. However, these days seats, chairs and resting platforms come in many shapes and sizes. Check out paper and cardboard seating, which often provides a low-cost yet highly stylish alternative to traditional chairs. 

8. Upholstered ottoman
