This is undoubtedly the most popular category among our readers when it comes to TV units. Space is not a luxury that many of us can afford to spare and we tend to swap the expansive for the ergonomic. In the small living space, a dashing TV unit coupled with open shelving can make a big difference. This is especially true if your old TV stand is simply messy, ungainly and takes up too much square footage. Replace it with any of the dashing TV Units showcased below and you will definitely see an instant transformation in the living room ambiance.
Moving away from the simple square and rectangles, it seems it is the circular and elliptical coffee table that is the more popular option in contemporary homes. This holds true in the case of the black coffee table as well with this trendy choice bringing in both visual and geometric contrast to a space dominated by neutral colors and straight lines. The hexagonal coffee table in black is another chic option while those really willing to experiment can bring home a masterpiece that is both abstract and sculptural in its silhouette. Beyond the form, it is the curated finish of the coffee table that gives it its contemporary appeal.
Here’s another great example of how mint can soften the contrast between colorful and neutral: the sofa pictured is plain white, set on the vibrant red rug, decorated with colorful pillows, but as your eyes catch the minty wall, the feeling of overwhelming contrast instantly disappears.

Adding mint colored furniture guarantees comfort and cheerfulness, two characteristics any living room can strive for!

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.
The sleek TV cabinet in the living room is an ideal fit for the contemporary living room where there is no room for excesses. It is easy to incorporate in most existing living spaces and takes up very little square footage thanks to its innately space-savvy design.

A colorful and striking sofa is definitely a part of this exuberant new look.
A sunny and open beige living room feels cheerful and optimistic! It’s truly a great space to spend your days in, soaking in the sunlight and enjoying in the lightness of the interior!
We always advice our readers to think beyond the confines of the square footage of their home and to harness all that additional space which those walls have to offer. Wall-mounted decor not only frees up precious foot space, but these cool floating cabinets, shelves and modular units also give the living room a more cheerful, breezy ambiance. They undoubtedly cut back on visual clutter and you can even use them to introduce new patterns, textures and sculptural features. Just remember though that you might not want to go berserk with wall-mounted modular units in smaller living rooms as they can easily seem overbearing when done wrong.
If you are someone who loves to catch up on their favorite TV shows while tucked in, then you can take these snazzy TV units into the bedroom as well. Inventive designs that combine the bedroom wardrobe with a television stand definitely steal the spotlight and also save space in the small bedroom.
Whether you wish to combine the black coffee table with another smaller side table or are thinking of ways in which to decorate it, it is important to find hues that blend in beautifully with black. Those searching for the ‘wow factor’ can opt for bolder choices like orange and red, giving the coffee table a vibrant and spunky look. Metallics also combine well with black while accessories in white accentuate the black and white color scheme of your living room. It is all about what works best with the specific style and ambiance set in your own living space.
