10 home décor ideas to claim back your living room

Transform your lounge with MADE.com to make it on-trend and timeless

Monday 17 May 2021 16:04

So, you lived like an urban hermit for 13 months and used Zoom’s backgrounds to hide empty pizza boxes piling up all around your living room table.

Perhaps the recent trip to the hairdresser gave you the confidence boost you needed for a quick drink at the pub, but now that two households can meet inside and you’re on hosting duty, it’s time to step up your game.

If you’re anything like us, you’d love to have the perfect velvet sofa surrounded by chic floor lamps and an artful mix of flowers, magazines, and unexpected objects on a design coffee table.

But where to start?

Regardless of your interior design aesthetics, MADE is here to help you decorating your home to suit your style and budget without the frustrations that come along with online shopping.

Here are ten ideas from the MADE catalogue to turn your cave into a sophisticated pad just in time for cocktail party season.
