How to Style Your Floyd to Match Your Taste
When it comes to decorating, it can be tempting to stop after choosing the large pieces for your room. After all, a living room is incomplete without a sofa, and a bedroom needs a bed frame as an anchor. But even the most minimal of rooms require something a bit more to feel complete — those personal touches that create a comfortable space. It can be difficult to figure out how to bring a unified sense of style to a room, even for those of us with extensive Instagram saved folders. So, we’ve called on our friends at Feather to help create a shoppable style guide. Check out their recommendations below to find the perfect pieces to complement your favorite Floyd according to your taste.
If you like your neutral interiors with a bold pop of color and a touch of postmodern whimsy, your style may lean toward Scandinavian. You gravitate to light woods and bright whites — so the Sofa in Oat and white shelving are the perfect building blocks for your space. Then, layer in color with a bold piece of art like this print, and with smaller portable pieces like these Minna side tables. Finish off the space with modern, playful lighting. This yellow lamp will brighten any corner, while an elegant floor lamp shines a spotlight on your seating area. Altogether, your space will be cheery even in dark winter months!
For the minimalist, a simple interior is the antidote to a hectic outside world. You like clean lines, value practicality, and prefer to stay away from busy patterns. You prefer sleek designs, like The Floyd Bed, and enjoy a functional metal accent like those steel Sofa legs. Keep color to a minimum and stick with a monochrome palette with accent pieces like the Bronson chair. Texture comes from adding in materials like a marble-topped side table.. Minimalism doesn’t have to be cold, so add a warm glow with lighting like the Linden lamp and the Loma floor lamp. Then, make space for a bold statement (or even another color) with art. The Verdant print is eye catching but calming, while this black and white print adds a little movement to an otherwise simple space.
Natural textures, airy colors, and a sense of simplicity characterize your style. You might not live in the golden state, but you can still channel its relaxed, indoor/outdoor lifestyle with neutral pieces like the Sofa in Oat and a classic pedestal table that nods to the sixties. Add in a natural color palette with warm tones like the Avalon chair, and light oak pieces like these dining chairs. A blend of materials is key: dark wood side tables are balanced by the fresh feel of a marble coffee table. Add a light, airy feel with a classic floor lamp and a round mirror that will reflect it’s glow. Finish the space with art that nods to your favorite views, like this framed print.
Mid-century style has become a classic for a reason. Many of us gravitate toward space-age shapes, pops of rich color, and deep wood tones. But you can achieve a retro vibe without cleaning out an antique store. Start with neutral pieces, but choose accent seating with rich colors like this velvet chair, which feels clubby and a little old-school. A patterned rug grounds the space, and provides even more color. Walnut is a classic mid-century material, so add in the warm wood with accent tables like this coffee table and side table, and with this multifunctional storage desk that evokes classic retro built-ins. Look for funky shapes to finish out your space — an arched lamp and molded task chair complete a room that nods to mid-century without feeling like a museum exhibit.
You prefer mixing your contemporary pieces with more bohemian accents. Your ideal space has a sun-washed feel, with muted color and lots of natural materials. Add functional pieces in light woods — like this dresser — to add storage and some varied texture! Textiles like a graphic rug and a leather chair add even more depth to your space. Finish it off with eclectic pieces like a slim side table, a mis-matched (but still complementary!) pair of lamps, and art that nods to adventurous travels. In no time you’ve taken a simple Floyd bed from minimalist to eclectic desert modern.
