Free-Spirited Furniture: The Bohemian Style in Furniture Design

The bohemian style in furniture design is a style that is inspired by the carefree and nomadic lifestyle of the bohemians. This style is characterized by furniture that is eclectic, colorful, and full of life. If you are looking for a furniture store that has several pieces that could fit in the bohemian style category, then Couch Potatoes is the place for you.

What Is Bohemian Style?


According to HGTV's article, "Bohemian Design Style 101", the boho style is a mixture of different cultures and artistic expressions into an eclectic style. The Boho style places an emphasis on organic elements and nature. 

It's all about embracing the unconventional and choosing a lack of structure over a consistent uniform look. While there are definitive instructions for this style, there are common characteristics that are a great way to fill your home with those boho vibes.

Boho Style Guide

Some of the most notable characteristics of the bohemian style in furniture are:

Colorful:

  • The bohemian style in furniture is characterized by its use of color. This style often uses brightly colored fabrics and materials to create a fun and lively atmosphere.
  • The color palette is warm, with colors such as rusts, creams, and taupes.
Natural Elements:
  • Boho furniture is often made with natural materials such as jute, wicker, and rattan.
  • Light wood tones such as pine, mango, or teak.

Layering Textures:

  • This can be done by combining different fabrics such as velvet, linen, and cotton.
  • Fur, leather, and sheepskin are also commonly used in this style.
