When most people think about rustic and industrial design, they imagine rugged spaces with all hard edges and rough wood, but this room proves that the styles can be soft and inviting while still maintaining their unique charms. The industrial materials like glass, leather, and metal add color and contrast complement the rustic cowhide rug and natural wood finish making the space feel welcoming.
Contemporary style has loads of perks. For example, it's clean lines and minimal forms can feel cozy and tidy at the same time. Plus, it's great if you want to add a few flamboyant touches without going overboard. In this space, the Vienna rug, with its old-world ornamentation, elevates the contemporary styling for a look that's approachable and refined.
Sometimes we want nothing more than to feel comforted by our surroundings. One of the best ways to get that sense of coziness in a contemporary space is to build a layout of classically inspired foundational pieces around your fireplace. This combo has a slightly nostalgic quality that will help you feel at ease.
One challenge for a mixed-use space is zoning it in a way that allows for separate functions to not interfere with one another. For example, in this room, we needed to have both an office and a living space, but we didn't want to worry about work when watching a movie, or dream of the couch when we were hard at work. To solve this dilemma, we simply placed a shelf, slightly taller than the desk, between the two spaces and Voilà, out of sight out of mind.
They say you can't have it all, but this charming living room proves you can at least have a space that's both comfortable and elegant. Its mix of rustic materials, like natural wood and leather and tasteful accents, like velvet pillows, and a striking traditional rug, make the room feel relaxed and refined.
The coffee table is big enough that can be reached from all seats. The white see-through curtain avoids making the space too busy. The eclectic style pulls fur pillows, a leather sofa, and a wood coffee table together.
