Soft furnishings

Hygge is the Danish concept of creating a warm and cosy atmosphere in your living room. It's all about creating a space that is comfortable, inviting, and filled with items that reflect your personality. To achieve this, it's important to choose the right soft furnishings. From cushions and throws to rugs and curtains, there are plenty of ways to make your living room feel more hygge-like. We recommend looking for textured materials in light, neutral colours like this throw from H&M Home or an array of cushions from Zara Home.

Soft furnishing for your living room


Candles are a great way to create a sense of hygge in your home. Candles can be used to bring warmth, light, and cosiness into any room. They can also be used for decoration and design purposes, adding a unique touch to any living space. Whether you're decorating your living room or just looking for ways to make your home more inviting, candles are the perfect way to add hygge into your home. Choose unusual shapes or inviting scents to hygge your way.
