Compared to its fairer nephew, the black sofa seems much more popular in modern homes and it fits in well with styles ranging from minimal to masculine and industrial. It is generally the black leather couch that heads the list here with tufted sectionals coming in close behind. Simple and stylish, a couch in black or darker shades of gray makes an even bigger impact when the backdrop is kept as neutral and unassuming as possible.
Even the flowers have gotten the memo that this living room is all about the color of the sea! The striped rug is such a nice touch and goes amazingly with the simplistic wooden table!
Those seeking even more contrast can choose a coffee table that blends unusual form with warmth of wood or sparkle of metal to create a cool focal point. In most modern living rooms the large coffee table is being replaced by a collection of smaller coffee tables or even a trio of stylish side tables, which give a lot more design flexibility. This summer, try out this new look for a fresher and more vibrant living room.
A great way to declutter the entry hall and the living room is to bring in a sleek and practical sideboard that does it all. Whether you wish to find a spot to display your favorite art pieces in a casual fashion or want to tuck away the unnecessary even while finding space for your brand new flat screen, contemporary sideboards do it all. Some even offer the option of a retractable chamber that simply hides away the TV when not needed! Those longing for less fancy additions should definitely consider sideboards with midcentury modern style that offer plenty both in terms of storage and style.
