Modern design is all about chic furniture and statement pieces. For a modern living room, you'll want to blend sleek elements with comfort. To achieve a livable modern living room, find cozy fabrics and plush rugs, and pair them with striking decor and 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!
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.
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.
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!
Not sure what to do with the transitional spaces in your open-concept home? Consider creating a little vignette to make that space feel intentional. All it takes is a console, some wall art, and perhaps even a pendant light overhead. Or create a gallery wall, anchored by a bench. (Or, in the case of this home, do both!) These types of design hacks make what could be an overlooked space feel designed and considered.
The Stairway Bookcase from CB2 packs storage into a small living room without compromising much floor or wall space. Modern linear shelves can house books, or if you're short on closed storage space, try adding baskets or totes to hide smaller items. A few vases or a piece of art can add a pop of color!
A modern living room meets elegance with its neutral color palette, bright metals, and layered prints. A modern shaped gold coffee table and side tables brighten the room by reflecting sunlight. The artwork, pillows, and rugs are layered into this room with different patterns and textures adding a richness that any elegant room must have.
Neutral and cozy! This family-friendly living room is both modern and welcoming. The cool tones of the Ravine Home sofa and chair are contrasted by the warm leather of the kid-friendly ottomans. The soft wool rug anchors the whole seating arrangement, adding a polishing touch.
