Boho Inspired Home Office Lounge
Recently, I have been working on a boho inspired home office! You can find more creative DIYs, ideas and sources that I used to decorate my home office, here.
But first, I want to share the details of the lounge area in our home office.
When designing this room, I asked my daughter’s opinion on style & color preference. Then, we discussed how we wanted to use the space.
This is where my teenage daughter and I spend most of our time during the week! She is usually doing art projects and I’m usually working on content for my blog and social media. Because I do a lot of work on my phone, I don’t always sit at a desk.
So, we decided that our workspace must include a cool place to lounge AND work in comfort.
That’s when we decided that we needed a futon!
Futons are versatile pieces of furniture that provide seating like a sofa or lay flat to serve as a bed. It is the perfect addition to a home office which can function as a guest room, if needed.
Futon design has come a long way in the past twenty years. I found the perfect handcrafted, eco friendly futon frame, mattress and covers from The Futon Shop!
When I shared my design plan with The Futon Shop, they collaborated with me on this room design.
Futon Frame + Mattress
My husband and I were both so impressed with the quality of the real wood frame and eco-friendly mattress.
- Cornerstone Wood Amish Flat Art Mission Futon Frame – Made by Amish craftsman, linseed oil finish emphasizes natural wood grain, easy to convert
- Queen Pure Comfort Natural Cotton – Organic cotton, natural wool & microcoils with medium firm support
- I recommend a stop slip, too. It prevents slipping when placed between the futon frame & mattress.
From a Sofa to a Bed to a Sofa, Again
The frame easily opens and closes to convert from a sofa to a bed. Simply, raise the frame out of the notch to lay flat. Then, lift the left side of the frame to let it slide into the notches to bring it back up.
Since my daughter seems to always have friends over, this extra space is great for sleepovers. Actually, she wants to move into this room! Probably, because she picked everything!
Hand Made Futon Covers
The Futon Shop mattress covers are machine washable, stain resistant, & spot cleanable. Y’all, I have kids and pets, so I only have slipcovered sofas in my home. It’s a great way to protect your furniture for years.
Typically, I choose neutral furniture. Then, I have fun with color, texture and pattern in my choice of rugs, pillows, and throw blankets! Therefore, I chose two neutral options including a creamy white and dark grey.
- Futon Cover and Pillows in Magnolia Loft – Durable cotton blend, super soft, waffle texture
In addition, futon covers can change the look of the futon by adding a different color or pattern into the room.
- Futon Cover in Slate Grey – Cotton + linen blend, easy to clean, hand sewn in California
I am so happy how this home office lounge looks! It is a fun mix of boho inspired color and pattern with natural elements and beautiful textures. It definitely inspires me to be creative!
