What good is living in the 21st century if your interior design doesn’t reflect it? If you’re looking for modern living ideas or want a glimpse of tomorrow, these futuristic living room concepts are sure to inspire thoughts of venturing into a new world of technology and advancement.
The following are conceptual renderings of what modern living rooms could look like in the future… just for fun.
1. Liquid Luxury in Smooth Blue and White
Gentle curves ride like waves around nearly every inch of this rich blue and white stylish living room space. The circular decor on the back wall suggests the sense of peering through the porthole of a living room in an underwater kingdom. A large sofa and wavy lounge facing a floating coffee table create the perfect place to take an afternoon nap.
2. Classical-Futuristic Fusion in Blue and White
Stately windows, sharp edges, and modestly ornate home decor merge with the peculiar shapes of futuristic design in this concept. Haphazard gaps in the carpet aren’t aesthetically pleasing and seem like they would be a pain when cleaning. Between the carpet and the asymmetry in the wall decor, the usage of AI in the living space concept jumps out at me.
3. A Living Room on the Edge of Tomorrow
This living room looks like it’s on the corner of a skyscraper’s penthouse suite. Angled walls are a feature I’ve always loved in a room, but the large beams don’t have the coziness that makes me like them. Beyond that, the living room is a pleasing blend of modern design and futurism with a heavier focus on saturated blue. It’s not a terrible concept, but I love the location more than the interior design.
4. A Bright White Living Room with Ample Space
Stark white walls dominate this living room and invoke a pristine cleanliness often associated with futuristic societies. The upper shelves on the wall would need a ladder to reach, so they’d be better suited for decorations that won’t be moved than books. My favorite feature is the enormous sofa with enough room for multiple people to spread out and relax in this modern interior from the future.
5. A Living Room Fit for Sci-Fi Nobility
Austere lines, deep colors, and a touch of futurism combine for a living room fit for a Sith family. The couch blends a touch of sci-fi with what appears to be built-in speakers. With no sign of drapes and a giant window, hopefully, some science can tint it to keep out the city lights when it’s movie time.
6. Coziness above the Clouds
The living room itself doesn’t feel very futuristic, and even an expansive view of a sprawling city still has a modern feel. That aside, a combination of subdued lighting and decor that breaks up the shapes of the walls and ceiling creates a living room that seems cozy despite the size of its space. The circular window adjacent to the slanted picture windows seems like an odd and unnecessary addition, but it could possibly serve to add in a smaller amount of light with the main windows closed.
7. Ground Yourself in a Gray-Scale Living Room
Despite sticking to various shades of gray, this living room manages to be anything but neutral and subdued. The look is overall more modern interior design than futuristic, but a touch of avant-garde decor brings in a hint of futurism while leaving the classical design to do its work. I’d move the large sculpture from in front of the window to get the full value from those expansive pieces of glass.
8. Posh Modern Living Room in Dark Tones
While calling this concept a futuristic living room would be hard, it is an elegant example of modern design. The most futuristic piece is the odd stadium lights on the ceiling, while the rest of it would fit right in with a modern living room decor. I adore the columns placed between the windows for subtly bringing the room closer without sacrificing any of the openness from the broad layout.
9. A Rainbow in a Cloudy Living Room
It’s nice to see more variety of color after the heavily themed color palettes in the previous living room ideas. However, it’s still a subdued application of various saturated hues on a primarily white base. Bubble shapes for the chair, television nook, and windows make the futurism pop out while remaining functional.
10. A Wonderfully Whimsical Living Room
Curved lines sweep around this living room, leaving very few spots where you can find a straight edge. The stripes of aquamarine and orange add brilliant variety to the room, and they could serve as a subtle way for any Gators fans to show their pride.
11. Enjoy the Fruits of Your Labor in this Vibrant Living Room
With rich blue and yellow swirling through a sea of white, this living room looks like a bowl of fruity ice cream inspired by the design. The chair is a cherry with its fruit-like shape and vibrant color, but it’s in the middle rather than on top. I haven’t enjoyed too many futuristic light fixtures, but the ones here have just the right touch of smooth asymmetry without garishly marring the ceiling lines.
12. Bask in a Circle of Colors
Creamy white serves as a base for this rotund living room, and vivid streaks of colors in various hues slash across the decor. A table with a rocky underside in faceted rainbow hues serves as a centerpiece and the ultimate expression of the living room’s theme. Smooth yet severe lines in the architecture and upholstery sit somewhere between modern and conceptual, but the reflective gloss of the floor tilts the room further into the future.
13. A Living Room Design that Transforms Expectations
The contrast of dark grays venturing into black against brilliant yellow plus an accent chair that looks like an oversized racing seat immediately reminded me of a certain vehicular robot-slash car that only communicates in radio snippets. More complex and sharp angles throughout the room enhance the mechanical feel. Although the design screams detached futurism, the small living room brings everyone in the space closer together.
14. Race to the Future from Your Living Room
With severe edges in the designs of the chair, ceiling, and walls, this is another gray and yellow living room that has a mechanical feel to it. If you pushed the seat closer to the screen, it would be perfect for racing simulators. While it’s hard to say without a total view of the room, what’s shown looks like it would have enjoyable acoustics when blaring my favorite music.
15. Block out the World
Upholstery that looks like a boulder was painted and tossed into the living room jumps out immediately in this concept. I’ve never found rocks comfortable for seating, so the living room doesn’t inspire me to come enjoy a siesta. Faceted designs on the table, walls, and ceiling further emphasize the rockiness of the aesthetic. The black and yellow color scheme doesn’t fit the room, in my opinion, but the yellow is much more subdued than in the previous concepts.
16. An Ostentatious Lounge with Unique Features
The overall boxy shape is more classical than many of the other slanted and round concepts, but the tinge of futurism comes through with the ornate ceiling sculpture and other artsy pieces dotting the room. Brilliant yellow is still in play, but it is far more understated and blends with the rest of the modern living room ideas more fluidly than the others. Functional shades are a significant plus for this living room, as many of the other concepts offer no reprieve from the wide views of the massive fixed windows.
17. Ponder the Orb in this Living Room
Circles and globes dot this futuristic modern space like stars in the night sky. The yellow period has given way to a red period, although gray undertones dominate the color theme for this concept. The back wall looks like a mirror at first, but a closer look reveals that the living room extends further backwards. While the furniture doesn’t look particularly comfy, the window napping nook looks like a great place to curl up and gaze at the city.
18. A Living Room that Values Shapes over Colors
Futuristic designs often incorporate extremes, as we’ve seen above, and this living room is no different. Gone are most of the colors, leaving only a rich vermilion for the upholstery and one piece of art. A particularly unique window has an irregular oval shape. Still, the influence of futurism on the living room style is otherwise more muted until you glance upwards at the slanted and circular ceiling structure.
19. Survey the Future Domain from this Living Room
Looking out over a distant city, this living room could just as easily be the lobby at a sci-fi corporation’s headquarters. Stone construction with subtle marbling lends an overall air of imposing strength to the room, and the splash of red from the couches and drapes adds an edgy urgency to the feel. I’m not sure I would want this living room to be where I go to relax after a day of work, but it’s an imposing and beautiful concept.
20. A Living Room with Bleeding Edge Curves
The color palette of this living room is both intriguing and eccentric. A fairly monotone gray serves as a base for blood-red swathes, creating imagery that looks like the interior designer ripped out of an artistic film noir. A long and curved space at the edge of a building efficiently combines a living room and a small dining space. My primary worry about this room concept is eye fatigue from the color palette, making it difficult to relax.
