If you’re serious about “cozying up” your home, then you should definitely consider floor seating. Floor seating may be a recent fad as you know but it goes all the way back to ancient Japanese and Indian cultures.
In fact, in India, most of their traditions and rituals are performed sitting on the floor. Why? Well, it is believed by Hinduism followers that the floor connects people to the earth, and the energy of the earth, along with the other elements of nature–fire, air, and water.
Today, homeowners incorporate floor seating into the designs of their homes to give the surroundings a casual and comfortable feel. Throw in some plush pillows and all the stuffiness will instantly disappear. What’s left would be a cozy, casual and charming space where you can kick back and relax all you want.
So how do you plan to pull this off? The post below certainly gives a lot of great ideas.
Cover the entire floor space with a mat and fill it up with lots of colorful pillows. That’s just one way. Or you can use a little corner and turn it into a cozy reading nook on the floor. You can also pair a usual sofa with low cushions so guests have the option between floor seating and high seating. Or you can simply remove the legs of your sofa, that’s another sweet idea.
Don’t think that floor seating is only for indoor use. You can also do it outside your home like in the patio or garden. The options are countless! Just go on and explore, and figure out which of these excellent ideas you’d like to use for your lovely home. Enjoy!
