Minimalist living room – Modern furniture enjoying an upsurge in popularity. This increase is due in part to the younger population shift to urban loft living, apartments and other small spaces. In addition, international influences and a slim, eclectic, functional furniture style entered into American living rooms.
For the modern urban-style minimalist living room look, try dark brown or glossy black wood finish. Think metals, glass and ceramics as accent pieces. Garnish with leather sofas and sectionals and tables made of wood and metal. If your living room is especially small, consider that they have no sofa at all. Place armchairs, club chairs, lounge chairs and love seats in different sizes and numbers around a focal point like a fireplace, TV and a leather ottoman serves double duty as a coffee table.
