The living space is where we come to relax and put up our feet after a long day. It’s where we share those precious family moments, from birthday celebrations to Christmas mornings. Creating a space that is both inviting and practical for modern-day family living is therefore a must.
Whether you’re striving to create a contemporary look or a more traditional feel, Knees have something to suit everyone. From loft style living to scandi-inspired pieces, we’ve got it covered. We stock a wide range of sofas which are not just comfortable, but effortlessly stylish too, while our beautiful occasional chairs and footstools can make a statement that will liven up any space.
When designing your living area, choosing the right furniture is key.

An essential guide to designing your living space
When designing a living space, many people will agree that the sofa is the most important purchase. Its sheer size makes it a natural focal point for the living area, while the style, colour and material can set the tone for the rest of the decorative scheme.
Before you invest in a sofa, however, think about the size and shape of the space available. An oversized sofa in a small area could overwhelm the space, so be sure to measure up before you start shopping. You should also consider the decorative scheme as a whole – for example, our Oscar sofa is perfect for those favouring a retro look, while our beautiful Ruby collection will bring a touch of elegance to any space. Many of our sofas can also be customised to create an individual look, with a range of colours and leg options available.
Choosing the best fabric to suit your lifestyle is also important. While luxurious velvet may suit some households, a hard-wearing material with built-in stain protection may be better if you have young children or pets. Selected fabrics on some of our sofa ranges are manufactured using Aquaclean technology, a revolutionary treatment that allows you to clean stains using only water – ask in store for details.
And finally, let’s not forget comfort! We spend much of our downtime on the sofa so it needs to be comfortable. Visit the Knees showrooms in Trowbridge and Malmesbury to test out your potential purchase before you buy.
& TV units
Console tables are typically long, thin tables that are designed to be positioned against a wall. Their compact dimensions make them ideal for placing in those awkward spaces or previously neglected corners. Great for showcasing decorative accessories, photos, lamps, mirrors or artwork, console tables can bring something extra special to your home’s interior. Knees stock a wide range of on-trend and classic console tables – view the collection on our website or visit our stores in Trowbridge or Malmesbury.
Whether you’re a film fanatic or an avid gamer, a TV unit is an essential piece of furniture for many people. But finding the right one can be tricky. The unit itself should meet your practical needs but it should also look good and complement the rest of your furniture. When planning your purchase, consider factors such as size and shape. How large is your TV? Where will the unit be situated? Do you want it to be a focal point or would you prefer it to blend in with the surrounding space? A compact bench or corner unit is ideal if you are tight for space, while a large entertainment unit can make a great centrepiece if space is aplenty. Storage is another consideration. Glass fronted doors or open shelves are fine if your digital paraphernalia is kept to a minimum, but if you have a lot of entertainment to house (DVDs, games etc), opt for a unit with plenty of drawers to keep clutter out of sight.

An occasional or accent chair can make a great addition to your home. Whether you’re looking to create a quiet reading nook or make a bold statement, a carefully chosen chair can inject colour, texture and personality into your living space. Yet with so many styles, shapes and sizes available, it can be difficult to know which option is best.
If you want to add visual interest to a space, opt for a chair that contrasts with the rest of the décor. For example, a bright, bold colour can really ‘pop’ when added to a room with muted tones and furnishings. The same goes for fabric. A velvet occasional chair, for example, can make a real statement when combined with a leather suite.
If you have a large area to fill, you might want to consider a snuggler chair. With generous proportions, snuggler chairs provide the perfect place to cosy up and relax after a long day. Alternatively, a reclining swivel chair and footstool such as our Stella range may appeal to those seeking ultimate luxury and comfort.

& side tables
Before buying your table you will need to think about its intended function. Will you be using it for simply holding drinks and snacks, or do you want it to provide extra storage? Many coffee tables now offer cleverly built-in storage and drawers to hide away any unwanted clutter. However, if you intend to use the table for displaying decorative items or magazines, consider opting for one with open shelves.
The shape and size of the coffee table should also be factored in. If you have a large living space, a generous rectangular table can make for a striking centrepiece when placed on a rug in front of the seating area. As a rule of thumb, you should allow two to three feet between the coffee table and the surrounding furniture to enable you to move freely. If you are tight for space then a table nest or stylish side table positioned at the end of the sofa may be more suitable.
Finally, think about the style and material of your table. The design should ideally complement the rest of your interior décor. Both coffee tables and side tables come in a range of materials including wood, metal and glass, or sometimes a combination. The best option for your home will depend on the look you are trying to achieve. And don’t forget to consider practicalities such as whether children will be in the home. A glass top coffee table might look great when spotlessly clean, but it will inevitably show up mucky handprints if little ones are about. If you do have children, consider opting for a hard-wearing and easy-to-clean material that will be difficult to mark.
Knees have a wide selection of coffee tables and side tables to suit your style and budget – view our collection here. Alternatively, if you’re in the Wiltshire or Bath area, why not visit one of our stores to find out more?
Finishing touches will add personality to your interior and help to bring your living space to life. Vibrant cushions, some quirky wall art and a statement mirror can transform your home into a stylish retreat that you’ll never want to leave.
When choosing your finishing touches, consider mixing colours, textures and layers to create a unique look. Accessorising with items of varying height, width and style will also add interest to the space. And don’t be afraid to rummage around at the local salvage shop – a well-chosen vintage piece can make a great addition to a space and provide a real talking point.
