Cozy seating areas around fireplaces enhance a comfortable and warm atmosphere in modern homes. Formal seating areas are perfect for traditional living rooms with a fireplace as a focal point for interior decorating. Casual ways of creating a seating area around a hearth call for creativity and unpretentious, comfortable and charming interior decorating. Instead of a mirror or painting hung over a fireplace, you can keep a wall with crafts, effortless and functional decorations, and a wool rug looks like an excellent solution for informal seating areas.

Lushome collection of small seating areas created around fireplaces shows how to create small spaces which are cozy, inviting, and decorated in a casual style. Uncomplicated and comfortable decoration offers elegant solutions for small rooms. A bench with soft cushions, a furry rug, a single chair with a footrest or a couple of ottomans is all you need for your small seating area with a fireplace.

Informal seating areas keep space in front of a hearth open while clutter-free decorating makes small rooms look spacious and comfortable. Matching decor accessories, throws, and pillows look beautiful and add a warm look to small room decorating. Fireplaces create a pleasant ambiance of friendly and comfortable homes, and even a small seating area in a casual style enhances an interior with a functional fireplace that keeps a house warm. It is a pleasure to cuddle up in front of a hearth, on the floor, in a chair or on a bench, especially when it is dark and cold outside.
