Small Space?

Big Style.

Decorating your place shouldn't be a squeeze.
Follow our tips and mix a few key pieces to create the illusion of a larger abode.

Small Space Big Style

Revere your rug

The right rug can open your space—pick one with a light hue for a dreamy feel.

Minimal décor? Choose one with a strong pattern that draws from the palette. Smaller rugs are great for highlighting key pieces or creating zones.

The Magic of Lucite

Lucite brings airiness to overcrowded spaces. The tiered, transparent framework of our Jacques Collection is great for utilizing empty vertical space. Maximize your storage with the collection's étagère.

Reflectology

Mirrors are light, airy, and glamorous—what else can you ask for?

Mirrored furniture, like our Delphine Collection has the same effect. Park the desk behind your sofa as a console and you'll reflect light and visually double your space.

Smart Seating

Everyone wants long legs, and there's a reason. A leggy chair or sofa is just as flattering as elongated gams—your room appears lighter than if you had hefty seating.

Bonus: a stylish side chair is a utility player, migrating from desk duty to an extra place for a party guest to park.

More Petite Seats

Double Duty

Ottomans, poufs, and X-benches are our favorite ways to serve up extra seating. Top them with lacquered trays to create tiny tables that are easier to maneuver.

Another insider tip: skip the sofa in favor of a daybed. A sly spot for overnight guests, top yours with an abundance of squishy pillows as daytime camouflage.

Shed Some Light

No room for a nightstand? A pair of sconces flanking the bed illuminates it all, no surface area required.

If your ceiling lights leave something to be desired, try a slim-footed floor lamp, or nothing gives you rich, boho bona fides like a casually swagged chandelier in a corner.

Brighten Up

Perk Up With Paper

The conventional wisdom is wrong. Wallpaper works wonders in a small space. Don't be afraid to pile on the pattern. The impact from a bold paper makes a small space seem purposeful.

Tiny Tables

A decorator's secret weapon. Minimally sized but monumentally stylish. Turn tight spots into places to perch.
