Create a Festive Feel by Adding Holiday Decorations to Furniture

It’s time to throw decorations all over the house for the holidays. But don’t forget your furniture. We talked about adding classic fabric-based festive cheer to furniture, but you can even add additional festive cheer by decorating your furniture with uncommon items.

Decorate the ottoman: A sturdy ottoman is like having a coffee table space without the bulk of an actual coffee table. That means it’s the perfect place for holiday props like faux presents, a pine centerpiece or holiday faux flame candles. You might even consider a tray setup, like in the photo above from Home by Heidi. It’ll create a focal point to the room in a unique way.

Add toys: There are plenty of playful additions to a chair or sofa around the holidays. A fun Santa’s elf doll may look cute on a corner chair, or a stuffed snowman could add charm to the edge of a sofa.

Drape stockings: A unique decorating touch would be to drape oversized hearth stockings over different pieces of furniture. Or hang some stockings from the edge of certain chairs. That will get your furniture in on the fun and give your home an uncommon look.
