Furniture Design: Modern Living Room Furnitureby Rohan Sharma Lalco Interiors
If one were given a choice to redo just one part of their home, most would certainly choose their living room. Designing a living room is commonly that one thing people put their heart and soul into, and that includes the important decision of choosing the proper living room furniture.
Since your living room sets the tone for your entire home and must have a pronounced décor and statement, here are a few tips on choosing your modern style living room furniture.
Pick a style
While there are several options for décor style to choose from, a modern look is simple and neat and yet makes a strong statement. The classical look in modern apartments typically lacking enough space can look cramped. The vintage style may be exorbitantly priced and render the living room a heavier look. Compared to these, contemporary modern furniture comes with their finesse and elegance.
Keep it Airy
While some people believe in stuffing their living room up with the most extravagant and expensive furniture, fittings and displays that turns it into a semi-museum, it’s always advisable to keep this one space light and airy. Cramming up a living area with furnitures, such as ornate coffee tables, ornamented chairs, a heavy and huge dining set and thick, rich fabrics of furnishing can leave your living room feeling dark, overstuffed and weighed down. Lighter pieces, such as Lucite furniture, smaller side tables, open-weave coffee tables and so on could be so perfect for this space, giving it a balanced and airy look.
Give Traditional a Spin
Even if you prefer a slightly heavier piece, such as an extra-large coffee table, go for a shorter height with a feminine shape. This could perfectly serve both as a coffee table and an alternative to the traditional game table for your game nights with friends and family. The shorter height balances out the bigger size with deceptive ease and the feminine curves add more elegance to the room in spite of the heaviness of the structure.
Use Subtlety of Structures
Instead of using opaque furniture, opt for standby silhouette structures, such as cane coffee tables, bamboo chairs, or even a bamboo sofa. You could either choose these in their traditional brown finish look or go for more modern, super-saturated colors, such as lime green, light yellow or ocean blue.
When it comes to living rooms, one simply can’t go wrong with the all-white furniture against richly colored walls. You could go for a white Chesterfield sofa or even a rough-hewn white linen sofa. Throw in a lot of texture to balance the monochromatic look, such as a crocheted centerpiece or a lush rug to accentuate the bright and white look of the furniture.
Add a bookshelf
Bookshelves add value not only to the look of a living room, they also make a statement about the householders. Invest in light wall mounted bookshelves or slightly heavier independent pieces standing on the floor. Add a cozy reading chair to that specific corner and transform it into your own personal reading nook. This could be arranged near a window to further provide a look of reading-by-the-window style. Add adequate lighting fixtures for nightly reading sessions.
Having a well-designed living room is both a personal and a social statement and hence to properly think through the style, the colors, the designs and the furniture selection is crucial in helping your living room feel “so uniquely you”.
