Diwans: The Heart of Indian Homes and Happy Memories

The Whimsical Diwan

Decorating your home interiors is a thrilling and very fulfilling journey. Your home would have a medley of sofas, couches, chairs and tables - corner or dining, or heritage furniture like wooden beds, cabinets and chests to complete your décor. 
Did you know that Diwans can add flair and style to your décor? 

Whether you have a contemporary, vintage or farmhouse décor, the diwan will fit in perfectly, adding its own charm to the room. Diwans are perfect for any area of the home, and what’s nice is that they are portable too! They not only fit in well, they are also a very useful piece of furniture, when you want to put your legs up and relax for an afternoon nap or to entertain guests.

Let’s explore the ways in which you can add a diwan to your décor and elevate the design quotient.

Perfect fit for an Entrance or a Window Seat

A well placed and beautifully covered diwan in the entrance to your home is an excellent way to spruce up that unused space. It works well as a relaxing area at the point of entry. For added charm, you can put up some decorative items on the wall behind or in front of it. You can also have a console in front of the Diwan, to up the feel of the area. 

Diwans can also be used as window seats!! They work very well, hugging a low window and making the perfect place for you to relax! 

Create that special place

A nook in your room is ideal for diwans. You can give it your own style element, be it vintage, traditional or Modern. Once you have decided on the mood, you can select the upholstery and cushions as per your style. A lamp works extremely well, giving your room a cosy vibe. The same goes for other styles. You can pair up your diwan with paintings, mirrors, wall decor and indoor plants in terracotta or ceramic containers. To add class to this lovely corner, you can paint your wall in vibrant colours. 
The upside to having a Diwan is that you can convert it into a bed at night! This is a plus point, if you have extra guests staying over. 
Some Diwans have drawers under them or a box-like structure, ideal for storing your  linen or other knick-knacks!
