Bold, striking and sophisticated black makes a big impact in a room even when used sparingly. Often relegated to window and door frames, black can be used in more ways than one in the modern living room as well. Making an instant impact even while blending in with the rest of the room, a black coffee table is one such stylish and dare we say, trendy option. Moving away from the transparent beauty of glass and acrylic coffee tables and the warmth of those in wood, a black coffee table seems inherently more contemporary and far more polished in appeal.
From the modern we move on to the world of traditional black coffee tables and while many might find the idea unappealing, they are definitely nothing to frown about. Combining the best of luxury Italian design with intricate craftsmanship and a dash of golden glint, these mesmerizing decor pieces would fit into even contemporary space when used right. Often, it is dark marble stone that acts as the table top surface and a metallic base that is filled with ornate design and clad in gold. If you love opulence and an air of timeless wonder, then these coffee tables are absolutely perfect indeed!
If the interior of your living room is leaning towards neutral, choose some wooden elements to balance the scale and bring in some warmth and coastal vibes!
Water is not the only charming thing at the beach. A lot of the magic stems from the sand! It has a calming energy, filling us with inner peace to the point where we don’t care if we are totally covered in sand grains, we simply never want to leave the serene beige scenery! Your very own living room can carry so many sandy elements you will soon feel like every day can be beach day!
In the design world, having ‘more of the same’ generally does not work all too well as a decorating approach. This is truer in case of color. Filling up a room with the same color is considered both ungainly and bland. It is often the contrast between three or more colors that gives a room its uniqueness and personality. Yet, for those who are really set on using largely one color to shape their living room, there are still plenty of exciting options around! Monochromatic living rooms are once again trendy and as is the case in most other rooms, it is neutrals that hold sway here.
Easy to move around, perfect for those who love to redecorate regularly, space-savvy, cost-effective and undeniably trendy, modular sofas and sectionals alter your living room ambiance forever.
In a neutral wooden living room, a mint sofa will be the focal point and the element that takes care of the liveliness effect!
We love minimal end tables that seem to slot in even into the tiniest of spaces with ease! When you need just a bit of room for your champagne glass, smartphone and not much else, then these ultra-sleek and refined end tables are absolutely perfect. Bloomingville give their round and slim end tables a Nordic finish while the Twin Occasional Tables from Cor seem like they belong on a sci-fi movie set. Be it is the uber-minimal end table from Jori or innovative side tables from Hulsta, each of these trendy tables is a masterpiece in itself.
A wall gallery can be such a strong piece in your living room, one that easily reflects the coastal theme and leaves anyone speechless. You get a crucial element for coastal interior and the room gets brilliant wall decor! Win-win!
A comfortable sofa is undoubtedly the most essential piece of any living room and often ends up defining the style and the decorating scheme of the space. With open plan living growing in popularity, this extends to the style of the kitchen, dining area and the social zone as well. With that in mind, it is essential that you choose a couch that is comfortable, elegant, adapts with changing trends and also acts as the perfect focal point in an open living space. While we have nothing against bolder, more colorful sofas and sectionals, today we delve into a world that is predominantly black and white!
We always love a collection of sofas in vivaciously different hues while talking about colorful couches and this section offers precisely that! Ravishing red seems a touch risky as a choice for your sofa, but get it right and you have a sophisticated, modern living room full of flair. The red sofa works well with white when it has a comfy, tufted design and blends in with hints of black to deliver a masculine vibe when draped in leather. It is the choice between the different materials that makes as much of an impact as the color itself.
Beige walls and corresponding furniture create an open, inviting space where everybody would be happy to lounge. Add the cherry on top with some striking blue decorative vases to bring in some color!
Surrounded by cheerful colors, this mint sofa feels rather cool and discreet. Its presence in the room will make sure your modern and trendy decor gets an element of stability!
A living room that is fully layered with beige hues sure has a character but it can get a bit dim, so a couple of bright lamps are a good thing to add to it!
Yes, decor in wood is big in 2017 and this trend of gravitating towards natural materials is set to continue in the years to come. But a fabulous wood coffee table or even a live-edge coffee table might not fit into the decorating scheme of your living space. Those looking to still bring in textural contrast can turn to acrylic coffee tables or those with a polished marble top and a wiry, metallic base. It is all about the space available, colors that surround the coffee table and the style of the room itself.
