The goal of the Middle Eastern style floor seating is to turn a small space with a low ceiling (think tent) into a multi function space that can be used to sit, eat, sleep and entertain. If you love the look of a traditional style floor seating but are not sure how to include it in your contemporary style home, here are 5 tips to help you choose the right style.
- Choose low seating furniture.
- Choose a sofa with straight lines (see how the sofa seat is rectangular in shape).
- Go deep! Pile colorful pillows in varying sizes for comfort
- For a formal look, select solid color fabric for the sofa cover
- For a casual look, select colorful and patterned fabric
The key to creating floor seating that mimics the look of traditional seating is to include patterns and colors that are inspired by these regions.
You can create your own contemporary style floor seating by upholstering a foam mattress with fabric of your choice to recreate any of the looks above. However, if you’d rather go with the traditional Middle Eastern style Jalsa, then you’ll love these sets (*affiliate link). You have the option of buying just the fabric or a finished Jalsa set already filled with top quality foam and shipped to your doorstep. Lay it directly on the floor or raise it on a wooden frame and enjoy the instant exotic look of traditional Middle Eastern style living rooms.
Combined with lush area rugs and layered with plenty of pillows and cushions, floor seating creates an inviting, cozy and relaxed atmosphere.
