Picture (Pattern) Perfect

Picture (Pattern) Perfect

Liven up your contemporary space with playful patterns. In this room, geometric wall-art, shibori pillows, and a traditional hand-woven rug in a pale pattern make for a pretty picture.

Geometric and Eclectic

Want to jazz up your living room? Add a few playful pops of geometric pattern to the space. Just make sure to balance out the design with some solid fields of color to give them a little breathing room.

A Neutral Living Room Filled With Natural Materials

A Neutral Living Room Filled With Natural Materials

This living room features a neutral color palette — whites, blacks, browns. But a variety of natural materials adds texture and visual interest to this space — from the patterned jute rug to the variety of woven baskets and pendants, the solid wood coffee table, and the leather pouf. And no space with natural materials is complete without a pop of greenery!

Subtle and Seductive

A delightful mix of soft blues and camel hues make this contemporary space feel extra inviting. The elegant, overdyed rug is handwoven and made of durable wool, ensuring this space remains enticing for years to come.

The Bright & Boldly Modern Living Space

The Bright & Boldly Modern Living Space

A light tan-leather sofa is a statement piece, no matter the style of your living room. Give it a colorful and modern eclectic edge by combining it with an industrial metal coffee table and a blue geometric rug. Then mix it up by layering in lots of pillows, graphic art, a woven pouf, and some cool lighting. It'll all add up to a look that's cheery and bold but still warmly inviting.

Modern Rustic Space with Pops of Black

We really enjoy the way this modern rustic space ties in a bit of black for added impact. The dark color adds just enough drama to the space to make things interesting. 

Walking on Sunshine

Walking on Sunshine

A thick, woven jute rug adds an extra cozy vibe to this contemporary living room. Its soft texture will feel great underfoot, and its light oat coloring will add extra sunshiney brightness to any space.

Modern Industrial Living Room

Comfort is King

A vintage finish floral rug adds a cozy, lived-in feel to this contemporary space taking the comfort level up a notch with its inviting charm.

"Floating" Furniture

"Floating" Furniture

In this modern living room, the furniture almost feels like it is floating. This is done by having very small legs on every piece. With the smaller legs, it allows you to see to the other side of the room with very little interruptions giving you the feeling of everything floating.

A Little Bit of Boho

The Ivory Dylan Rug seen here adds a bit of boho charm to this modern living room space, mixing a touch of casual warmth to the contemporary cool.

Living Room with Contrast

Living Room with Contrast

We love the way a black and white color palette makes an impact in a neutral living room. A conversational seating arrangement is created with a modern sofa in a light upholstery fabric paired with black leather chairs for contrast. A shag rug adds a boho touch to the space!
