Trends for Smaller Space Living

If you're on the hunt for versatile, affordable furniture for any space in your home, Somerton Dwelling is a great place to start {and end, they have it all}. Classic and cozy-casual is the new style trend being embraced by both Millennials and Baby Boomers. Its timeless appeal easily blends with all decorating styles to offer a comfortable, laid back look that is made for relaxing or entertaining friends. The low- maintenance distressed finishes like weathered woods combined with neutral gray and dark wood finishes are made for daily living. From small city apartments to cozy country cottages, they have a size, style and finish just for you. Here are a few favorites to fit any home style. I'm loving all the blue, 2017 will feature lots of it too so pay attention!

If you prefer being involved with the furniture design process, or enjoy a great DIY project, the iMPROV line is curated just for you! It's a collection of stylish mix-and-match modular home furnishings that can be assembled and reassembled in a wide variety of configurations. Save space by stacking components, or, for the decorating enthusiast, inject a splash of mood-lifting color with optional teal or red shelving to display prized collectibles. And wouldn't you know, the shelves are reversible if you feel like toning it down! The option of adding moulding and feet to any piece is great too, customization is easy with iMPROV.

Sweet dreams begin with a cozy setup like the “Give Me a Hug” bed from the iMPROV collection. The wrap around linen-upholstered headboard and plush frame create a welcome retreat from a stress filled day. In the foreground the “Cross My Heart” side table pulls double duty as a nightstand and the background shows the four-drawer chest and two-door cabinet stacked together to make a spacious dresser. This beautiful arrangement appeals to a first time homeowner or the seasoned furniture buyer, with names like that how could they resist?


 The best part about this collection is that you can continue to change it as your life evolves. Setting up a kid's room, changing shelving height and location as they age, and turning into Mom's craft room when they move out- it's all possible with this line. However, it doesn't just work in a bedroom, but dining as well. Here are some great examples for any space:

The "And Then There Were Three" nesting tables offer the perfect amount of space needed. Slide one or both out for extra accent tables or simply to extend the table’s surface. When the party’s over, slide them back. Now that’s real magic! Form plus function wins every time.

This "On Your Six" console table may seem to be just a beautiful console, however, pull up a chair and flip down the center cabinet face to accommodate a laptop at a moment’s notice. This console means business! With so many other modular options, I'll let you get creative. Take a look at what other options are available with the iMPROV collection HERE.

Another line to allow you to express some creativity is the Open Seating Collection for dining rooms. How does this work? Pick your favorite regular or counter height table and a chair or two, along with a server to create a customized dining look that fits the life you love. There are no rules, combine any finish or fabric, upholstered chairs or wood chairs, what’s right is what you like. The Pierre Table caught my eye with its delicate scallop and metallic foot detail. What chair would you pair with the Pierre? Fun fact: all dining tables have masculine names and their counterpart dining chairs have feminine names, how cute is that!?

So I'm sure you can agree, they have it all! With a great blend of smart design and affordable price points, Somerton Dwelling is a one-stop shop. Speaking of shop, did you know they're open for business 24/7? It's true, check out the E-commerce site now and start designing the home of your dreams!
