The Plunge Sectional has been our most popular sectional for years. Our customers love the soft cushions and how quickly they sink into them. This year, we’ve released a new color- navy! While navy is one of the trending colors of 2019, it can also be one of those colors that is perceived to be harder to style than others. This blog post will break down how the Plunge Navy Living Room Shot was created at our most recent photoshoot.
When choosing the seating to your living room, there are often a few things you want to think about: what’s the purpose of your room and how many people are you going to be seating at a time? If your living room has to be a functional space for both your family and your dinner parties, having a variety of seating functions is going to aid in making sure your space can be transitional.
Moreover, we like having different options for seating because it allows for fluid conversations. Not all your seating has to be once color. The additional chair you choose, whether it be an arm chair or a club chair, does not have to match your sofa or sectional, but transition well into your space. Our designer paired the Plunge with organic wooden tones in the brown leather of the St Anne Club Chair for this reason and to expand the color palate we had.
Storage is a very important component to any room. Since we picked a coffee table that does not have an inside storage component, we wanted to add another storage option. The Colvin Storage Unit boasts three spacious drawers and multiple shelves making it, what we believe to be, the perfect storage solution for this space.
In our last blog post, we talked about how the little details can make a big difference. Adding accessories that bring together your space can be a lot easier than it seems. We chose our gold spheres, golden bull, and squirrel sculptures to keep adding in warm tones that contrasted the cool blue of the Plunge Sectional. The orange and blue binding of the books also aids in creating a stark contrast to each other.
Contrasting colors are a great way to add personality to your space. We chose orange to contrast the navy because they oppose each other on the color wheel. Opposing colors have the tendency to pop out in your space and can therefore, become your focal points. Take these two pictures below for instance, the orange pillow in the top image stands out from the blue pillows in the second.
Here at Moe’s, we have a wide variety of lamb fur and goat fur pillows. These pillows are great for adding texture to your space in a variety of colors and sizes.
If adding a contrasting color isn’t your style, and you prefer a monochrome or toned-down look, different variations in blue will pair well with the Plunge too.
Let’s talk about lighting. Lighting can, at times, be the make or break of a room. While designing this room, our designer opted for a more rustic piece with cool chestnut tones and iron hardware. Even though the Pasquale Single Layer Pendent Lamp, is more traditional in its design, when paired with this contemporary ensemble, it ties together the room giving it a transitional cozy feel.

At Fairways, Zenterra’s planned community of townhomes overlooking Surrey’s Peace Portal Golf Course, designer Gene Guindon had fun with creative pairings of contrasting materials as he embraced the return of luxury and glamour. “Velvet is back at the right time,” says Guindon. “The design industry has definitely headed back to adding a little more luxury and glam.” He notes that the return to super soft materials in home accents around the home was inevitable after the popularity of mid-century and industrial design took hold.
