West Elm

A new piece of furniture is the quickest way to reinvigorate any room. And with long winter nights ahead, you don't want to be stuck in a décor rut wishing you could check into a boutique hotel until spring. To help, we're highlighting the new-season arrivals that will update your home in an instant, and all without having to embark on a renovation.

We went straight to West Elm's latest range of perfectly curated comforts for inspiration to make over the home's social hub—the living room. By replacing one (or all) of the room's three key pieces—the sofa, rug, and coffee table—you can really take the space to the next level. Plus, we've scoured the internet to find additional options to suit every budget. From textured materials, to the warmth a wool rug brings underfoot, these are our picks for making your living room as chic and serene as possible.
