Today’s world is all about multi-tasking and adaptability and most of us barely manage to squeeze out enough time to rest and relax even while doing more than one thing at a time. It is barely a surprise that the design and decorating world is following suit with furniture that can be easily moved around and altered to satiate your constantly changing needs. Gone are the days of the stoic living room couch and its central, immobile presence! Modular sofas and sectionals are quickly becoming the norm in living rooms across the world and they definitely are a top decorating trend in 2017.
If you have noticed it already, then wooden decor is on a grand comeback in recent months. It does not matter if your living room has a contemporary vibe or a cozy rustic appeal; decor in wood seems to find space in almost every living room these days. It is the silhouette of the decor that determines its style and an all-wood entertainment center with a cool TV stand, additional wooden cabinets and wall-mounted floating shelves can feel as much at home in a modern living room as it does in one with traditional flair. Just browse through the classic and yet timeless choices from the likes of ercol or Hartmann and you will not be disappointed.
Looking beyond functionality and focusing on aesthetics, we start off our journey by delving into a world of sofas with a distinct red hue. The many shades of red and the finish of the sofa allow the bold and conspicuous red couch to be a part of many different living rooms. A dashing sofa in wine red and clad in leather looks as much at home in modern and eclectic living rooms as it does in traditional living spaces. Modern couches in lither tones of red, pastel pink and even burnt orange are increasingly becoming part of smart homes where neutral backdrops demand a splash of uplifting brightness.
Minute details make a big difference to the larger picture and it is ultimately the smaller design and decorating choices that define the style of your home. It is the couch, coffee table and the TV unit that might largely set the mood in your living room, but you still need a cool end table or side table to truly complete the setting. Despite their seemingly modest presence, end tables make your life a whole lot easier even while adding another unique dimension to the living space. Often overlooked, these versatile additions also find a place beyond just the corner next to the couch!
