Of course, the first thing we will need to decide on is a theme and there are certainly plenty of these to consider! When it comes to planning the design of our living room we can stick to classic and traditional styles or we may opt for something that is little more contemporary. If we do decide to bring things up to date with our choice of look, then Minimalism is always a safe bet.
A bookshelf can look cluttered. If you don’t need to access its contents on a regular basis, hang a large piece of art from the shelves, as shown in the next space designed by John Dransfield and Geoffrey Ross. Not only is this technique a great way to maximize limited wall space, it stylishly hides the shelf’s contents. In fact, try placing paperwork or other unsightly items behind the canvas!
If your seating faces the TV set, try placing it to the left or right of the room’s focal point. A chair can always be swiveled to better align with the television when it’s time to watch your favorite show.
Next, select furniture that is comfortable enough for an afternoon nap, but elegant enough for hosting company. Be sure there is plenty of seating and, if possible, arrange all furniture so those seated in the living room will have a clear view of each other and the entertainment center if one exists.
Sometimes the answer is as simple as relying on the furniture you already own. In the next image, a sofa distinguishes a living room from a bar area in a chic family home.
Kundalini Light Design are skilled in their bold use of round, organic geometry in their products. An art piece of Guglielmo Berchicci , the ETA Sat Lamp looks like a huge bulb, somehow tropical, and creates a jolly atmosphere.

Adding to them, rich hued and heavily embroidered drapes would usher in the traditional charm by all means. If you remember, we all used to and still do love our furniture and curtain clothes made out of velvet, silk or brocade. The enticing presence the traditional stuff brings into your living rooms is beyond compare.
There isn’t any doubt about the fact that the old world living rooms ooze ultimate charm. Traditional stuff bring in a classic touch to your home’s interiors. Try bringing back the traditional sofas made out of teak, walnut or mahogany, and you will know what it means to recline in those royal seats.
Designed by Ross Lovegrove, it is similar to a mobile crafted from sleek and shiny metal pieces. The lamps are encased in the sleek aluminum rock-shaped elements that are stylized dew drops suspended in mid-air under an upside down pond lily leaf. The shape of this unique lighting artwork can be interpreted in many ways. It is mostly decorative, since its light emission is not direct, but purely ambiental, reflected on the large aluminum disk.
Sofas don’t have to be modular to be expansive. For example, a curved sofa adds spacious seating and geometric interest. Throw in a swivel armchair, and have some floor poufs and cushions on hand for those nights when large-group entertaining is a must.
