With the Christmas tree in position and the home stylishly decked out with your favourite decorations, you are probably all set for another year of seasonal festivities. But, whilst so much attention goes into getting the tree and home perfectly styled, the fireplace is often overlooked until Christmas Eve when the stockings finally go up, ready for Santa to fill.

A Christmas tree does not look quite the same until it takes pride of place next to the fireplace. To allow you to huddle around the fire, we have put together a warming selection of lounges from our current listings that range from the traditional to contemporary.
