Modern Living Room Design Ideas

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!

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!

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.

Transitional Style for Large Communal TV Viewing

Transitional Style for Large Communal TV Viewing

We enjoy how this layout gives you a central boxed-in, TV-viewing spot that still has good flow and leaves plenty of walking room all around. And unlike the previous design, this layout results in a slightly more formal living room design. 

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!

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.

Elegance Meets Modern Design

Elegance Meets Modern Design

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. 

Multifunctional and Flexible Studio Apartment Living Area

Having a more open layout that’s not centered around a TV makes this a great layout for hosting guests—and there’s even space for an air mattress if someone wants to crash overnight! This bench adds extra seating for conversational hangouts, but it can also be pulled in and used as a coffee table for a game night.

Entertain all your friends in this large, yet cozy living room. Pops of bold blues and yellows liven up this space, while the gold tones soften it for a feminine feel. Cheers!

The furniture in this space takes its cues from mid-century design, with sleek frames and clean lines, while the stone fireplace and ceiling beams offer a bit of rustic flair. The result? A living room that is full of California cool.
