My Sylvie Style is… Modern Cottage

My Sylvie Style is… Urban

Trends may come and go, but the most enduring furnishings are the ones that can blend seamlessly with any style. Our versatile Sylvie Sofa from Robin Bruce is truly the “little black dress” of seating–whether you’re a mid century mod lover, a romantic, or an elegant traditionalist, the Sylvie is your go-to choice! This season, we’re celebrating #MySylvieStyle through the eyes of four of our favorite designers. See how Erika Ward, Erin Wheeler of Sunny Circle Studio, Kristen Forgione of The LifeStyled Company, and Anissa Zajac of House Seven Design each interpret their own Sylvie style and create a unique space based around the clean contours and versatility of this sofa. Each designer brings their own signature look to the project, highlighting the way in which Sylvie can truly blend effortlessly with any interior design style.

Kristen’s Sylvie Style: Versatile, clean & durable

Next in our series of features is Kristen Forgione of The LifeStyled Company (also known as LCo Design), whose crisp but easy going style provides an ideal setting for Sylvie’s modern silhouette and Rowe WearProof washable slipcover. “My Sylvie Style is ‘organic desert living,’ LCo’s signature aesthetic,” Kristen says. “The Sylvie sofa has clean lines that create a juxtaposition with the slipcover skirt, offering a modern take on a traditional classic.” This relaxed sitting area featuring Sylvie as a focal point, is a perfect example of Kristen’s warm, natural style. “I especially love the Sylvie Sofa in this light and neutral tone,” says the designer, “because it can complement and balance any space, while being versatile enough for any of our design concepts!” Kristen chose a cozy tasseled throw in wide tan and white stripes to pair with the sofa’s creamy white performance fabric, as well as rustic wood elements and a selection of large pillows.

Get This Look:

  • Welcome guests with an inviting, well-placed throw

  • Coordinate a selection of pillows with throw

  • Add texture with baskets and vintage items

Why Kristen Loves WearProof Slipcovers

“This ‘life proof’ fabric allows our clients to have aesthetic choices in their upholstery without worrying about performance! These fabrics can within stand the test of time, grime and dirt…and even kiddos!”

Three Unexpected Spaces for a Sleeper Sofa:

  1. Sun Porch: Capitalize on beautiful weather with a unique indoor-outdoor sleeping solution. Take your sunroom from daytime entertaining to an evening retreat with a convertible sleeper sofa. For a breezy sleeping porch, we suggest the Easton Slipcover Queen Sleeper for its transitional appeal and easy clean-up.

  2. Playroom: Impromptu sleepovers are a breeze with a well-placed sofa bed. Add a sleeper sofa to the heart of the action –the playroom — and cross your fingers for an early bedtime. Our kid-approved Somerset Twin Sleeper Sofa is perfect for small spaces and small bodies.

  3. Home Office: If your home office sometimes doubles as a guest bedroom (or a secret naptime spot), a sleeper sofa is a must-have piece. For the modern home, the Mitchell Queen Sleeper Sofa combines classic tailoring with a sleek silhouette.

Eric Cohler is highly acclaimed for his ability to fuse classical and contemporary elements. Dubbed "The Mixmaster" by editors, Cohler's interior spaces display layers of unusual texture and color, and he is known for his carefully curated style.

"The colors feel luxe and unique yet livable – you could use them on a full suite of appliances (from ranges to hoods to refrigerators) or on one statement piece."

His work appears in almost every interior publication including – Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, House Beautiful and Veranda. Most recently Cohler’s design for a Gramercy Park triplex was featured in the February 2016 issue of Architectural Digest.

"I'm a believer in the handcrafted. The fact that BlueStar appliances are not mass produced give them an artisan appeal; as a designer I have carte blanche. The ability to customize to each client’s personal style and taste is unusual – and extraordinary – in this category"

Tips and Furnishing basics for your Airbnb

Let’s face it, running a rental property is a great source of income, but choosing how to furnish it can cause some anxiety. Cole’s is now furnishing Air B&B’s with a Free design consultation and discounts on all furniture. Here are some basic tips to help you get a start on furnishing your vacation rental. Rentals that feel like home are more likely to be booked!

Living Room

This is one of the most important rooms in the house. It’s not only because that’s where your guests will spend most of their time. First impressions matter. The living room is the first space your guests sees when they open the door. You will need to keep in mind the size of your space when purchasing furniture. You need the essentials, but less furniture also creates a roomier feel.

Living Room Items:

  • Couch: Choose one that will fit in your space without taking up the entire room. Slipcovers are a great investment. Understand that rental units have more wear and tear than if you were to live there yourself. If you want an extra sleeping space, a pull out sofa bed is often a great idea as it will allow you to bump up your nightly rate. Choose neutral colors. Beige, tan, or gray will not age as quickly. Accent it with pillows to add colors that are more replaceable.

  • Armchairs can be a great addition.

  • Add end tables, coffee tables, consoles.

Introducing our new line of Occasional Furniture:

The bedrooms in your property are what keep people coming back. Comfortable beds can make all the difference, especially after long travel days.


One of the big reasons people choose a vacation rental property over a hotel is that you get a full kitchen. Make sure your appliances work well! We have many great packages to choose from.

There are a couple of ways to go with this. If you have space, purchase a good quality dining room table that seats at least four and is easy to wipe down. See our Riverside Dining sets.

LIberty Furniture

If you have a breakfast bar or kitchen island, stools are great for pictures and a nice addition to the description. It is always enjoyable at the bar.

Coyote Grill Coyote Outdoor living

If your property has a patio or yard, it is well worth the investment to get a grill. We carry Coyote Outdoor.
