Raise your hand if you’re spending a lot more time at home lately than you ever expected to. We know the feeling! With most of the world under orders to stay home for the time being, we think this is the perfect time to focus on all the positive aspects of staying home. Cocooning in your personal space can be a wonderful way to relax and recharge your batteries — and with cozy, custom sofas and chairs options to snuggle into, home can become the ultimate staycation! We’ve rounded up some suggestions to make home more like a boutique hotel, and a few of our favorite Rowe custom chairs and sofas for sheltering in place in the best possible space.
Top 5 Home Staycation Luxuries
- Unplug Yourself – We know many of you may be working from home, but don’t hustle 24/7. Make sure to take time to leave your phone on a shelf, turn around the clocks to face the wall, and stop checking the news for a while.
- Clean House – We know nothing sounds less relaxing than house cleaning, but once the floors are sparkling and all the linens are crisp and clean, you’ll feel like you’re being pampered in an upscale hotel.
- Reading Material –Pull out all those books you’ve always meant to read, and work your way through them one at a time (read on for some great suggestions for custom Rowe seating options to kick back in while you read!).
- Feel the Glow – Nothing sets the stage for coziness like candles, now is the time to use all those fancy ones you’ve been saving!
- Take the Night Off – Support a favorite local restaurant and pick up tonight’s meal curbside, or order delivery. Arrange it on nice plates with a few candles for an extra layer of vacation-style luxury.
Essential Cozy Chairs
The Wide & Deep Sylvie Chair
A generously proportioned chair pulls you in for some quality solo snuggle time. Whether you’re reading a book or catching up on all the movies you said you’d get to when you had more time (and now you have the time!), the Sylvie chair provides the perfect place to cozy up. A seating area that’s both broad and deep even allows you to swing your legs over the arms if you’re curling up for a nap — you choose how you want to relax!

The Spacious Sectional Neval Sectional Sofa
An essential for large families (or singles who love to stretch out in a different spot every day), the huge Neval Sectional Sofa is everything you need to make your home a haven. When it’s piled high with inviting throw pillows, a sofa looks both stylish and utterly inviting. Stretch out with your legs out on the chaise portion, cuddle close with kids in the corner seat…however you choose to enjoy it, a large sectional is the perfect choice for the whole family.

The Versatile Emmerson Swivel Chair
Is there anything more classic than a swivel chair? These are perennial favorites for their chic versatility, as seen here in our Emmerson Chair. They can easily pivot (literally!) from family game night to solo reading time…they even make luxurious office chairs for all those working remotely at the moment. From the living room to the bedroom or the home office, swivel chairs deserve their “turn” in the spotlight.

Interior Designer Style
Staycation, anyone? If our living room included this cozy grouping including our Forbes Sofa, we’d never want to leave! Pairing an organic modern print with a soothing accent palette of coral and slate, designer Gina Sims has put together a seating area that invites rest & relaxation.
The only thing better than a Rothko Swivel Chair is two Rothkos, so we’re happy to see a pair of them in this living area by designer Emily McAden. The fresh blue upholstery, plentiful natural sunlight and fresh greenery make this space a bright oasis. While a trip to the florist may not be an option right now, snipping a few branches from the backyard or even using artificial greenery is a great way to bring a breath of fresh air to the indoors.
We can just imagine this homeowner flopping down on our Brady Sectional Sofa with their guitar in hand, happily passing a lazy afternoon by strumming a few songs. Designer Molly Carter’s inspiration here is perfectly relaxing boho chic. The inviting bench seat cushion makes this sofa a perfect place to rest, recharge, and of course, practice those new skills gained during staycation.
Cats have an uncanny knack for choosing the best seat in the house, so this one zeroed right in on a pair of our Abbie Swivels, of course. We love this intimate seating area created by DuVäl Design…and can you blame us for wanting to sink deeply into one of those swivels with our feet propped up on the ottoman coffee table?
