With an open floor plan—where the kitchen, living room, and dining room might all be in one big space—use a sectional couch in a bold color to define living room boundaries. Throw rugs help, too.
Add throw pillows to a bench or daybed to make it function like a couch. Add art or a mirror to the adjacent wall so you don't visually miss the sofa back.
Select furniture with unique designs that evoke the style of a place you love. Here, a couch of white full-grain leather upholstery with a maple wood frame reminds us of the tropics.
Sectional sofas are no longer just dark leather-clad pieces intended for the TV den in the basement. Beautiful designs and materials now allow for high style and true lounging.
An occasional chair can look lonely solo, so work in twos. This stylish duo is a nod to mid-century design and custom-made in Los Angeles.
Add a splash of high-end to your keeping-it-casual living room with a coffee tabletop in a unique material.
Choose a side table in an interesting shape or material for visual interest for a piece that works overtime. Or, expand the look to a modular coffee table by clustering multiples of this hexagonal-shaped table honeycomb-style.
In small living rooms, make use of vertical space and furniture that serves multiple uses. For instance, this piece has both a media cabinet and bookselves.
Floor space at a premium? Get creative. We love this living room swing made of reclaimed wood.
