Do you ever look at your living room and feel that it just doesn’t have the type of luxurious finish that you feel like you deserve? No matter how much you redecorate, you can sometimes feel as though you’ve not quite reached the peak level of opulence that you’ve been trying to attain, but often this can all be changed with a few purchases.
From sumptuous blankets to cinema-like televisions, we take a look at four plush purchases you can make that are guaranteed to take your living room from OK to outstanding. Everything included in this article is of the highest quality, so you can rest assured that you’re stocking your lounge with the best of the best.
A TV to eclipse all others
Every living room needs a television, but sometimes a 50-inch just won’t cut it, so here’s where Samsung’s 98” Class Q900 QLED Smart 8K UHD TV comes in. This mammoth screen stretches a full 98 inches from corner to corner, meaning you’ll be able to read the fine print on a newspaper being shown on screen no matter where you are in the room. And the price for such a beast? A cool $59,999 – a worthwhile investment if ever there was one. The TV is also available in a smaller 58” model, which is ideal if you want to mount it on the wall with a bracket from a company like Vogels for a neat and seamless fit. Regardless of your choice, this TV is sure to tie your room together for an enjoyable cinema night, every night.
An elegant chandelier
The Empire Chandelier is an incredible creation that is modelled to look like the famous Empire State Building in New York City. Crafted from modern gold-plated brass and ornamented with hundreds of beautiful crystals, this chandelier is the perfect statement piece for the centre of any living room. Picture it hanging directly from a lofty ceiling above leather sofas or an expansive dining room table, making it a unique and elegant piece that will provide a talking point for guests.
A super soft blanket
There’s nothing more comforting than snuggling up with a cosy blanket that offers the softest and most soothing touch, and the Hollywood Ava lambswool and cashmere luxury blanket by JG Switzer is just the ticket. These luxury blankets are milled in England’s oldest mill, which has been in continuous operation since 1783, and the mill carries a Royal Warrant to Windsor Castle, so you can be assured that they really are fit for royalty.
Available in three colours – champagne, white and raven – and in king or queen size, with a price tag of $900 and $800 respectively, you can be sure that these incredibly soft blankets will add the desired touch of luxury and warmth to your room. If you find that one isn’t enough, simply add more until you’re drowning in luxurious softness.
A tasteful sculpture
If you really want to change the look and feel of your living room, including artwork is the fastest and most effective way. Of course, the type of artwork you choose to bring into your home is very subjective and depends largely on your tastes, but even if you don’t have a great eye for art, it’s fine, as long as you like the look of it, that’s all that matters. This Art Deco bronze sculpture from Pamono, for instance, would work well in any larger space and is a stunning piece from an era that never seems to go out of fashion. Commissioned between 1920 and 1929, this cool piece of history will set you back around $2,300 – a small price to pay for bringing beauty and culture from the world into your home.
