Modern furniture instantly upgrades a home and makes it look high end and professionally designed. I love how our new black leather couches transformed our tired modern living room and gave it new pizazz. Previously we had a simple grey sectional that was nice, but did not necessarily bring any real style to the space. I love how the buttery soft leather looks against our tall media center and the dark espresso brown floors. If you ever find yourself less than satisfied with your house decorating ideas I would definitely suggest looking at your spaces with a fresh set of eyes. After analyzing our living area with my best friend, we decided that a new couch may be just the thing to upgrade the space. Turned out we were exactly right.
I think that modern furniture makes a living room effortlessly chic. A lot of people are scared to play around with any type of home furniture design that is outside of the norm because there is not a lot of direction online for what to pair with these pieces. Most home decor photos you see feature the same white on white design in primarily traditional styles. I love playing around with color in my home like we did with the mustard and orange palette in this living room. It was actually pretty easy to find these beautiful furniture pieces (and at a bargain price too) because people tend to not gravitate towards them on the floor of a large home decorating store. Between the couches and cool wood coffee tables, I knew I would have an awesome room.
Hunting for unique modern furniture pieces has been a passion of mine for years. All modern furniture draws me in because of its clean lines, funky shapes, and unexpected colors and patterns. I really like this particular living room design because even though the three shade color palette is very simple (just yellow, grey and white), the room feels very dynamic and high end. Not to mention, the cool furniture pieces they chose such as the round arm chairs and awesome wood and marble coffee table are artwork in itself and bring such an awesome style to the space. If I could replicate this entire room in my own home, I definitely would.
Modern furniture is a great accent to any style home from contemporary to traditional. This large sectional looks fantastic in the open concept kitchen and living area, especially paired with sleek white cabinetry and marble surfaces. The best furniture stores to buy pieces like this are actually some of the cheapest as well because there is not a lot of adornment on modern style pieces, you can actually find couches, tables, chairs, etc. at bargain prices. Look for affordable modern furniture like this at places such as Ikea, Value City, and Rooms-To-Go. I know some may say that quality is an issue, but you would be surprised at what you can find.
I love incorporating modern furniture into homes with more traditional elements because I think that dueling styles creates such an interesting look. In this particular primary living area, we brought in mid century modern furniture for the sitting room and dining room. These pieces create such a cool contrast against the traditional style panelling on the wall and the rustic wood beams on the lofted ceilings. Don't be afraid to mix and match styles to create a dynamic look that will have your home looking like it was professionally designed. The best modern furniture can transcend multiple architectural styles and color palettes to provide simple elegance to any space.
Modern furniture does not need to be harsh, edgy and cold. You can create warm and inviting modern interior design with the right color palette and furniture choices. This beautiful living room is a great example of how contemporary decor can be just as soft and inviting as your more traditional styles. I love how the furniture design is distinctly modern but is done in plush fabrics and softer lines than you often see. Those pieces paired with the variety of textiles in the space and warm white color palette create a very cozy look that makes you want to curl up with a good book on the long white sofa.
