5 Chic Furniture Pieces to Help You Hibernate In Style This Winter

Up your home’s cosy factor with these picks from Lifely.


Winter is officially here, meaning it's the perfect time to retreat indoors to rewatch Gilmore Girls for the fifth time or curl up with a good book and a steaming mug of hot chocolate.

And what makes it even better is when you have a cosy sanctuary you never want to leave. So, why not refresh your abode this winter with some homey décor to take your hibernation to the next level?

To warm up your space (minus, you know, a heater), look for pieces with woodsy elements and earthy, natural colours. Choose warm-toned wood for furniture, like oak or cherry. Or, opt for walnut if you like a moodier aesthetic, or maple to add a touch of brightness.

When it comes to your colour palette, consider working in grounding neutrals like browns and greys, or trending tones like olive, mustard, or burgundy. If you want to keep things bright and airy, invest in warmer whites, like wheat, vanilla or beige.

Textures can also elevate the comfy factor of a room, so opt for corduroy, faux fur or even boucle for visual interest. Leather, despite its cool feel, can also add a cosy touch. 

If you’re looking for some affordable-yet-high quality pieces to tie your snuggle-worthy space together, Melbourne-based furniture and décor brand Lifely has you sorted.

Regardless of whether your aesthetic is minimalist, maximalist, vintage or even industrial, their collection has something for everyone. To help you get started, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite Lifely décor pieces to give your space the ultimate makeover.

Camila Scandi Power-Loomed Rug, from $524

We’re big believers that a rug can make any room feel instantly more put together and curated. But choosing the right shape can be tough, especially if you’re moving into a new space. That’s why we love the Camila Scandi Power-Loomed Rug. Featuring the soft curves of an oval and the sharp angle of a rectangle – in the words of Hannah Montana, this rug offers the best of both worlds. Plus, its wheat colour is a nice way to complement the other warm tones in your home.

Ballico Round Coffee Table, $585

No culture better embodies the idea of cosiness than Scandinavian countries. They even came up with the expression ‘hygge’ – a word that describes the feeling of snuggling up to watch a movie or play a board game with friends. So, it's only fitting that this coffee table is influenced by Scandi design principles. With its honey-coloured grain and unique ball-like legs, there’s no better centrepiece to tie your living room together.
