Furniture Inspiration for Creating a Space Inspired by Fall

There’s something special about the feeling of fall. Between the changing leaves and cooler weather, there’s a greater appreciation for the outdoors everywhere we go. This is one of the reasons why it’s an ideal time to bring elements of the outdoors inside. Earth tones and natural textures can make attendees feel like they’re tied in with nature. 

Let’s look at how to use the season to find inspiration for an outdoor-inspired design with furniture from CORT Events. Let’s get ready to bring the outdoors inside.

Combine the Colors of Fall Foliage

One of the most striking features of the outdoors in the fall is the changing color of the leaves. Fall foliage draws our eyes to vibrant, awe-inspiring colors. Taking inspiration from the hues is an easy way to bring the outdoors inside and replicate a fall landscape at an indoor event.

Browns, oranges, deeper yellows, and darker greens all suggest the leaves of cooler seasons. Using the Valencia Sofa as a base will start you off with a natural Earth tone. Add other soft seating pieces to the mix, like the Bowery Chair in ochre and the Valencia Chair in spice orange. These chairs not only add more soft seating to the space, but they also complement the earthiness of the sofa.

Other accent pieces bring in natural elements. Champagne Velvet Pillows add some lightness to the scene, while the Marche Swivel Ottoman in forest green and the Jacob Wood Table add more natural elements. The Morocco Rug adds more earthiness to tie everything together from the ground up.

Ground Your Event with Textures

Texture is one of the keys to achieving a natural, earthy feel. Varying the textures within a space adds dimension and make the room more interesting. For our example space, the soft, sophisticated velvet of the Valencia Sofa contrasts well with the distressed leather texture of the Atherton Chair. The Mesa Cocktail Table, with its rustic yet sophisticated barnwood top, adds another dimension of outdoor texture to an already inviting space.

Smaller pieces and decor elements with varying textures can add to an earthy yet elegant vibe at a fall event. The Irvine Floor Lamp has a faux marble base, while the Frayed Lumbar Pillow has intriguing edges. Tie them together with the Del Mar Tonal Rug. These textures are pleasing to the eye and the touch, and they combine to create a comfortable, cozy space.

Contribute to Warmth with Patterns

Adding more patterns to a space breaks up the solid colors and adds interest to the eyes and warmth to the senses.

The Plumes Pillow features a light feather pattern in neutral fall colors for a different sense of bringing the outdoors inside. In contrast, the Albuquerque Pillow in ochre brings a welcoming and inviting Southwest vibe. These pillows with bold, memorable patterns also pair well with the Lena Chair in moss green or the Bowery Chair in ochre.
