The family room seems to be an ideal setting for an extra-long sofa. Its plus-sized length encourages full-length lounging for napping, reading, or vegging in front of the TV. This particular curvy sofa leans toward the formal, which isn’t necessarily important in the family room, but it’s so unique in design that it borders on the funky. Family rooms love funky furniture, as long as the pieces are comfortable.
Frame your fireplace with a set of built-in shelves. This is a great way to create a feature wall in a living room. Feature walls look best when they are symmetrical, so make your shelving units equal in size. In the living room design above, we used open shelves. You can also add doors to cover the lower portion for closed storage. Add a pair of sconces and a mirror or painting above the fireplace to complete the look.
We’ve mentioned once before that white-painted brick walls can add texture to the space and highlight its uniqueness. Black-painted brick walls can have a similar effect. They actually look very elegant here, blending modern and rustic beauty. On the other hand, there’s nothing like an exposed brick wall. Such a feature can be used as a focal point for the room, introducing something unique to its décor.
There are two types of people: those that prefer a fabric sofa in their living room and those that enjoy more a leather sofa or couch. Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages. Leather furniture tends to look more elegant, sober and imposing whereas fabric upholstery makes it look more casual.
