Of all the styles in the world of interior design, traditional inherently takes up more space. That's because the style is geared toward being intricate and artistic, yet bold and formidable. Chic, modern styles, on the other hand, are popular in smaller apartments because they don’t take up much room. Chic is naturally more petite, less pronounced, a little bit dainty yet still flamboyant. Some homeowners and apartment dwellers don’t want to live a cramped lifestyle, which is partly why the minimalist interior design style is so popular right now. It's the talk of the town, even interior design magazines showcase some kind of minimalist home every month. However, if you don't care for a minimalist home with barely any personality, then a space saving, chic interior will give you the opportunity to better manage your space as well as still being a pathway to choose unique decor.

Tall Cabinets & Armoires
Cabinets and armoires are the perfect furniture piece for a smaller space, be it a living room, dining room or bedroom. Traditionally used to store linens and other off-season items, an armoire can be used for a myriad of reasons: glass cabinets, like the one above, are great for showcasing collectibles, photographs and other personal treasures. A solid door cabinet stores out of sight items, like extra bedding and pillows. Functionally, a solid door cabinet is great for housing a television or other electronics, too.
Tall cabinets and armoires make good use of smaller spaces because of their height. More taller than wide, a shabby chic cabinet would be a marvelous addition to a chic interior. Try DIYing your own shabby chic cabinet with chippy paint, delicate door handles and decoupage.
Loveseats Vs. Sofas
If you have a large living room, then a large sofa is your best bet. A sofa with a smaller frame would just get lost in a larger room, and would look silly and out of place. Following trends thatdon’t suit your home can do more harm than good, too, especially when it comes to your pocketbook
If you don't have the space for a larger sofa, or if you're looking to style a smaller room like a den or family room, consider a loveseat.
On https://shopdiscountdirect.com/shop/living-room, for example, you'll find small and pedantic loveseats that are the definition of chic interior decor. One of the examples known as the American Uptown Ecru Loveseat, above, is neutral in color, with fabric cushions that have been padded. You can just sink into this chic 63" sofa and curl up with the ocean blue throw pillows that have intricate peacock designs.
Chic Cushions And Throw Pillows
Unlike throw pillows, cushions can be used as ottomans and extra seating, and some even double as storage, which is why cushions are the perfect addition for any small room. Sometimes, you can purchase matching cushions with your bigger ticket furniture items, like sofas and loveseats. And if they don't match, you're sure to find cushions that complement your furniture.
Throw pillows, on the other hand, are the perfect small-room accessory. Oftentimes throw pillows are included in your sofa or loveseat purchase. To purchase extra, buy throw pillow forms or inserts and purchase covers separately. This way you can change up the decor based on the season, the holiday or just your mood!
