Classic Ways to Make Furniture Appear More Festive

With the holidays here, you may be wondering how to make your home more festive. The usual ideas may come to mind, like a Christmas tree, festive wall hangings and holiday table settings. But by getting creative with textiles, you can add a whole new holiday feel to furniture.

Find festive throws: This is perhaps one of the easiest and most eye-catching ways to add festive cheer to furniture. Find a holiday throw to drape over the whole top of a sofa, or if you want to go more understated, a red blanket over a chair can look festive. Though if you have a basic fabric pattern like white or tan on your furniture, that can go with any holiday throw you find, like in the photo above from The Yellow Cape Cod.

Get holiday throw pillows: Throw pillows are a great way to tie a piece of furniture into any theme. You can get a holiday pillow to match just about any color scheme, as well. There are even purple Christmas pillows on the market.

Remember covers: Holiday slipcovers and cushion covers are quick and easy ways to make any piece of furniture or throw pillow festive. It’ll look like you went out and got a whole new piece of furniture or pillow piece for the holidays.
