What's your home style?

From traditional to contemporary: what’s your home style?

Whether you’re choosing a new sofa, armchair, dining room set or bed, your personal style is bound to influence your decision. When it comes to home style, there is no right or wrong; nor is it about age or income – it’s simply a question of taste. Whereas one person may prefer a traditionally styled family home, another may want to express their taste with ultra-modern décor.

Furniture is a key part of your home environment and can change the mood as well as the style of the room, for example, a red leather sofa can lift a neutral colour scheme.

So what are the most common types of décor? At Furniture Choice, we have furniture for every style, including contemporary, traditional, ultra-modern and gentleman’s club/shabby chic. Or you can mix and match, for example by choosing a contemporary leather sofa suite for your living room, but adding a rustic shesham wood sideboard as a statement piece.

The more time to you take exploring the options on our website, the more likely you are to be happy with the furniture you choose. And with free delivery to most of the UK, you can be enjoying your new furniture in no time at all. Here’s a guide to get you started.

1. Contemporary

Living room - A sleek leather sofa is a perfect centrepiece for the contemporary living room. There’s a wide range of affordable bonded leather sofas on our website; alternatively, with the right décor, an aniline brown leather sofa with matching footstool can also look great in a contemporary setting. Combine two-seater and three-seater sofas or consider a corner sofa or one of our modular sofa options. Add the finishing touch with a light oak sideboard and matching nest of coffee tables.

Oregon Brown Leather Sofas

Dining room – A light oak dining table will fit in beautifully with your contemporary dining room décor, especially when paired with a set of glossy leather chairs with curved skirt and high-scrolled backrest. Glass-topped tables also look great in a modern home.

Callisto & Richmond Oak & Glass Dining Set


Bedroom – For the contemporary bedroom, choose a sleek black or brown leather bed with practical storage drawers to keep clutter at bay. Or pair a contemporary fabric headboard with one of our supportive divan beds with a pocket-sprung or memory foam mattress – we have a wide range from Silent Night to Sleepeezee.

2. Traditional

Living room - A high-quality aniline leather sofa with fabric cushions will offer lasting comfort for the traditional living room and can be ordered with a comfy matching armchair and a footstool for extra storage. For the ultimate in relaxation, choose a two or three-seater recliner sofa with matching recliner armchair.

Dining room – A solid hardwood dining table finished with a classic, rich dark brown stain would fit beautifully in a traditional home. There’s a choice of round, oval and rectangular table tops, some with beautifully designed inlay, and a range of classic leg shapes from elegant curved legs to solid central legs. Make up your dining set with solid hardwood dining chairs finished in a quality bycast leather.

Chatsworth and Carrick Extending Dining Set

Bedroom – The more pocket springs in a mattress, the more support you’ll get and the better you’ll sleep. Our wide range includes generously proportioned Super King Size divans with 3,000 pocket springs and layers of cashmere and lambswool. You can also order any mattress to fit your current bed.

3. Ultra-modern

Living room - The chic styling of our ultra-modern black or red leather sofas with metal legs will look perfect in your living room, whether you choose the two-seater or three-seater. Add a white leather tub chair with wenge legs and Indian shesham wood nest of coffee tables for striking contrast.

Loft Red Leather Sofa

Dining room - Our white, high gloss dining sets are perfect for the modern look. The tables are available with either four legs or a central pedestal leg and chrome feet. You can then pair them with our latest faux leather dining chairs with chrome legs, in a range of bright colours.

Paris and Perth White Dining Set

Bedroom - An ivory leather king-size bed would make the ideal centrepiece for the ultra-modern bedroom or, for the ultimate in indulgence, treat yourself to a leather TV bed with mechanised footboard to store up to a 32” TV.

4. Gentleman’s club/Shabby chic

Living room - Aniline leather sofas are perfect for the gentleman’s club or shabby chic look, especially the vintage aniline leather, where the natural grain and markings give each sofa its unique character. Available as two or three-seater sofas, as well as sofabeds, armchairs and footstools. An aniline leather chaise longue or bench sofa with winged arms and studded back would work well in a study or the kind of living room where there are shelves of hardback books on display.

Caeser Aniline Leather Sofa

Dining room - A solid Indian shesham wood dining table set, with black or brown leather chairs with dark brown stained legs, will fit in beautifully with this style, as will the matching handcrafted shesham wood two-door sideboard.

Bedroom - For quality and style it’s hard to beat a super king size bed upholstered in a good quality cognac brown leather with hardwood feet. Choose a memory foam mattress or a high-quality pocket-sprung mattress for a great night’s sleep.
