If you have the space, and particularly in through living rooms, arrange furniture to create purposeful zones. Sure, have a sofa that is just for TV worshippers, but also create a defined reading space by putting an armchair next to a window or table lamp; assign a dedicated work space to a corner with a console table, desk or home office hidden in a cupboard; or separate a children's play space from the rest of the room with open shelving.
Drawing on the techniques of modernist architecture, minimalism is all about making the most out of as little as possible. Stark, sleek lines combine well with open space, strategically placed carpets and seating to simplify the living room as much as possible. The challenge is to create a harmonious minimalist living room without making it seem cold.
Creating living room decor in a modernist vain is a practice in less being more. Utilizing neutral color schemes to accentuate contour lines, strong geometric shapes and asymmetrical designs are the hallmarks of modern furniture. Achieving the modern look relies heavily upon furniture selection as well as placement. Search Living Spaces’ selection of modern furniture to piece together your vision.
Start with the basics and assess what furniture your living room really can’t do without – and how you might make it more versatile, with hidden storage, for example. Also think about how durable each piece needs to be and what’s worth investing in – soft furnishings get the most wear, so get the highest quality you can within your budget or opt for removable covers that can be machine washed.
