New Lease, New You

Let’s face it: furnishing your first apartment can be a daunting experience! Creating a space that feels like home, especially on a budget, can be overwhelming. Luckily, Coley Home offers high quality furniture at direct-to-consumer prices that will last well beyond your apartment years.  

 Furnishing your apartment is all about YOU! It’s your first real-world opportunity to let your unique design taste shine. We’ve put together three apartment-style living rooms to help give you inspiration when designing your first home:



It's no secret that first apartments can be short on space. Don't have room for a sectional or sofa? Our new upholstered Eloise Settee is a great space-saving alternative! We draped it in Luxe Velvet, Sand to create a show-stopping luxury for this petite piece. 

Moving in soon and need something ASAP? The quick-ship Nash Swivel in Ticking, Dove is just what you need. This slipcovered swivel chair is such a classic piece... and it looks even better in pairs! The Nash is petite enough to fit in smaller spaces, but provides the perfect amount of comfort so you can easily binge your favorite show!  

To fluff things up, we matched our Deco Pillow in Heron, Melon with our King Pillow in Como, Robins Egg. Add a welt in Luxe Velvet, White for a clean and classy look! Now all you have to do is cozy up with this herringbone throw blanket!  

For more versatile pieces, we chose our Teeny Stool in Como, Robins Egg and our Porter Side Table in Italian Blend, Oyster. This duo makes for the perfect bar area!   

Speaking of bar areas... This Amazon bar cart is fun and affordable. Stacked with your favorite Estelle glasses and a cocktail kit, you'll be ready for guests in no time!   

Final touches and chic accessories make your apartment a home. This elegant mirror and floor lamp will tie everything together. Pick out some coffee table books and your apartment is done!




Introducing our new Lola Swivel! Complete with flange detail and a functional slipcover, this swivel chair in Ringo, Shell is sure to be one of the most comfortable, and coveted, chairs in your apartment!  

Remember our Eloise Chair? We made one that swivels! Keeping the same silhouette, this upholstered swivel chair is all things elegant. To elevate this look even further, we chose rich, warm textiles: Luxe Velvet, Mushroom with a Luxe Velvet, Sand welt.  

To accommodate a bigger living area, we brought in The Slipcovered Bradley Sofa in Casual, Ivory. Everyone loves a bright white sofa, but with wine nights and dinner parties, it’s not always practical. This performance fabric makes for a perfect slipcover, and it’s easy to wash if spills happen! For some extra cushion, add some Plush, Coral Deco Pillows! 

Let’s dive into the details. Smooth and sophisticated, we started with this ice blue lamp to elevate our room! It will look gorgeous on your console table with this beautiful capiz shell box.  

Amazon is the perfect one-stop-shop for your new place. From these petite flower bud vases to this navy decorative tray, we’ve got your coffee table covered. Not to mention this gorgeous blue vase!  

Need some extra decor? Grab this white marble mirror and vintage magazine cover to hang on your bare walls! Once you're done, kick your feet up and pour some wine in your favorite Estelle glass.



Let's celebrate our small spaces! Not sure how to decorate that awkward spot in the corner? This little scheme is perfect for you. 

Starting with our Crosby Chair in Casual, Lavender. This upholstered chair with simply white legs will bring a youthful, fun look to your apartment. Take two.. they get lonely!

Our Slipcovered Harper Bench sits beautifully against any blank wall. We chose Italian Blend, Grape for a darker contrast... But you can grab extra slipcovers if you want to switch up the design for your next apartment! Insider Hint: we love using the Harper as a dining bench as well!

For some added comfort, we chose the Euro Pillow in Casual, Lavender with a Plush, Coral welt and paired it with this velvet pillow from One Kings Lane.  

Our Porter Side Table is available in three sizes and can be used in a variety of ways. Grab a large one to place this gorgeous table lamp on! 

Ready to accessorize? This gold mirror and shagreen tray are great starter pieces. Fill the tray with this fun candle or set of Estelle glasses!  

 It never hurts to have a good cookbook around, and we are loving this one by Gwyneth Paltrow. Hang up these adorable Etsy paintings and you're good to go!
