#TrendyTuesday: The Tufted Look


Characterized by pleats surrounding the buttons used to secure cushioning to the backs or seats of a piece of furniture, the tufted look has swept into homes and found a place in every room. Adding a tufted piece here and there throughout the house can help to soften modern interiors that come off as rigid. Here are our favorite ways to bring the tufted look to each room:

The Living Room: You cannot go wrong with a sofa with tufts. A tufted sofa brings so much character and style to the room, that simple furnishings for the rest of the room is acceptable. If you'd like to go with more of an understated look, tufted ottomans are perfectly unassuming, yet still bring the soft touch a modern room might need.

The Bedroom: If your bedroom needs a cozier feel, try a tufted headboard or a tufted bed-end bench or both! Having a modern bed separating these two pieces will create contrast and bring drama to the room.

The Dining Room: Ever consider adding texture to the walls of your dining room? It's a look that allows your dining table and chairs to be as modern as you'd like, while still adding a welcoming feel that people feel comfortable eating in.

The Kitchen: Does your kitchen tend to draw attention, but not the good kind? With inclinations to become cluttered and messy, adding a tufted breakfast nook can help create a more visually appealing focal point, other than the cluttered countertops.

The Bathroom: Yes! The tufted look can be incorporated into a bathroom. The shadows and highlights that tufting adds to furniture will add dimension and texture to this room, that usually looks one-dimensional.
