Mountain Modern – Ideas for Seating

When it comes to decorating your modern mountain home, it may be a challenge to decide on which styles of seating to incorporate. Take a peek at the results of some of our mountain modern projects and get inspired with rustic, yet clean, seating ideas.

How to Choose

mountain modernBefore we dive into inspiring design styles, let’s quickly cover how to actually choose the best seating for YOUR space. Here are our tips:

1. Consider the Space

You may love the oversized look and feel of a sofa, but will it actually fit? Consider your room layout and how the seating will be arranged.  Decide what seating combination will work best for your lifestyle and space. A sectional for example really fills the space, while a sofa, loveseat and chair combinations offer more versatility.

2. Think about the Style

Believe it or not, there are many styles out within each genre. Even though you lean modern, you could be “rustic modern”, “modern renaissance”, or “modern farmhouse.” So, we recommend taking a look at all styles of the modern genre and narrowing down the style elements you’re most attracted to. The fabric, the lines and detailing will set them apart.

3. Coordinate on Color

You’ll want your seating to fit in with the rest of the surroundings and the easiest way to coordinate the color palette. Remember, neutral seating acts as a blank slate to decorate around, however, you’ll love adding an unexpected piece for levels of interest.

Now that we’ve covered some basics, let’s take a look at some inspirations….
