Everyone has their own vision of a “dream living room” – an ideal space that allows them to express their personality, but which also feels equally welcoming and homey to guests.

After all, the living room is considered to be one of the most critical spaces within a home, as the perfect lounging area, for homeowners to lie on a comfortable sofa and watch TV, or gather with friends and enjoy laughter and conversation over cups of coffee. Be it minimalist, modern retro or modern vintage, it’s up to the homeowner like yourself to create the personality of your living room – which best expresses your lifestyle, tastes and preferences.

 Here are some quick tips to enhance the atmosphere of your living room through home furnishing. Sometimes, all you need is an easy and quick fix – just find the perfect match of a really stylish dark wood coffee table and sofa, and it immediately elevates the mood of the living room space.


The Bruno Coffee Table by Commune - Whisky, Anyone?

The Bruno coffee table ($599) is one such table. It celebrates Art Deco elements in a modern way, through its elegant, distinctive and classic herringbone pattern, paired fashionably with age-worn brass. The Bruno collection was designed for individuals who appreciate modern vintage and nostalgic elements in their home, brought together in a simple and chic way. The brass detailing of the Bruno coffee table has a worn-out antique brass finish that blends with the dark acacia wood, giving it a mild contrast that is aesthetically pleasing.

Paired with the seductive qualities of dark acacia wood, your living room will exude an old-world elegance that is sure to leave a deep impression on your visitors.

The Geormani Leather Sofa by Commune - Refined Elegance

Also, if you had to pick one piece of living room furniture as the “most important,” you’d probably pick your sofa. There are lots of good reasons why you’d choose to do so – our fondest, warmest memories of home and meaningful stories with family and friends are often formed around this humble everyday staple. This is why at Commune, we don’t just think of sofas as functional seating furniture, we think of sofas as the centerpiece that could transform your living room or family space into a pleasurable, conversational, interactive gathering space, encouraging communal bonding. You only need a couch that makes people relax and feel they belong to a grouped conversation while being so comfortably seated.



Choose a sofa; and you choose a way of life. Sofas come in so many different textures and materials, to reflect the rich variety of lifestyle needs and options, or the different personalities of homeowners. For example, some may choose wicker, a breathable material that showcases the airiness of nature. Others may choose fabric, which automatically adds warmth and cosiness to any atmosphere; wood, which is aesthetically pleasing to the eye and exudes a quiet confidence; or leather, which exudes both modern class and an old-world refined elegance. We've suggested some wall colours above that would bring out the natural brown of the Geormani leather sofa best, such as deep blue, teal, taupe, dark brown, or woody panelling.


Commune’s signature Geormani sofa (from $1,299) is made of durable, supple, smooth and soft-touch genuine leather, which injects a wild prairie vibe into a casual living space with its rich and dark hues. Its contemporary, sleek and refined design with classic, masculine lines appeals to the fiercely independent consumer, secure in their own identity and their own style and taste.

Ideal for use in any reception or lounge configurations, this sofa is best paired with modern vintage furniture, boho modern, mid-century modern or modern retro furniture, as well as masculine industrial furniture, to create the sense of a sophisticated gentleman's living room – where enjoying that glass of aromatic whisky would be the perfect ending to a long day’s journey into night.
