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.
A glass coffee table has the potential of making the room look less cluttered. In addition, if the table has a glass top this allows its base to stand out and to feature sculptural and eye-catching designs. As you can see, the coffee table takes center stage in this case, everything else being organized around it. You can use multiple strategies to make a living room feel welcoming and comfortable. For example, combine a textured rug with a wood coffee table, a fabric sofa or sectional with lots of cozy pillows and a few personal decorations framed on the wall behind it.
By exposing this living room to the outdoors and minimizing the barriers between the spaces, this area became a lot brighter and feels a lot more spacious, even though the two sofas framing the coffee table take up most of its floor space. Black and white is a popular and timeless color combination, often used in living rooms. You can’t really go wrong with this combo regardless of the style chosen for the interior design. A similar result can be achieved with combination of light and dark colors.
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.
