Katherina Kolb. Living Room. August 30th , 2017.
Coffee table, cocktail table, occasional table … there aren’t many pieces of furniture that have multiple names and uses. When you consider how important (and functional) a great modern coffee table is to a living room, it’s incredible how often it is taken for granted.
Your living room, regardless of size, should be able to function as a space for relaxation and entertaining. Here are some of our favorite ways to make it feel more spacious.
Draw the Eye Upward A room has a vertical dimension as well as a horizontal one. If your living room has a high ceiling, make the most of the extra space by decorating it in a manner that draws the eye upward. Floor-to-ceiling drapes are a stylish way to accomplish this goal.
As fireplaces are generally made of heavy and hard-looking materials such as brick or stone, they can weigh down the look of a room if dressed improperly. To combat this, break up the masculinity of a fireplace with the soft, fluid lines of plants.
Any good entertainment room must have a great TV area. This one is no exception. The design team mounted the television on a sculptural addition that resembles a wave emanating from the wall. Warm timber planks line the steel frame, giving the space a surf shop feel.
