FEATURED: Bliss Sofa + Bliss Chair-and-a-Half + Turned Pedestal Side Table + Marquis Rug + Box Frame Coffee Table + Crewel Diamond Pillows
WHY IT WORKS: Caroline Manrique, a photographter and blogger in Chicago revamped her living room with the help of west elm. Her new bright + airy living space is a neutral haven and a sophisticated backdrop for future photo shoots!


I should have posted some before photos! My living room was filled with oversized dark red couches and was so dark! I wanted to open up the space and bring in modern pieces and lighten up the room. I love gray and whites together. Your Bliss Sofa and Bliss Chair and a Half were perfect. I am a professional photographer and I want to use these pieces in my photoshoots too. I also bought the Turned Pedestal Side Table and Box Frame Coffee Table. The perfect finishing touches included the Marquis Rug and the pillows! I am so happy with my new room! And I want to give a HUGE thank you to Juan Bracero and Andrea Diaz from the Lincoln Park store in Chicago for all their help!

Caroline has an artist’s eye for everything. Gorgeous grays and whites that do not feel cold, but current and welcoming. Did I mention cozy too? Congrats, Caroline! Love all you do.

Hey there Caroline (or anyone else), how comfortable is the Bliss Sofa? Is the back too short? How is it to lay down on?
