33 Luxurious Living Rooms By Top Designers Worldwide
Welcome to our collection of luxurious living rooms, courtesy of some of our top designers from around the globe.
When we think of luxury, there are a million images that come to mind. Luxury is an idea more than a specific ideal.
With that in mind, we decided to explore the full spectrum of living room luxury by way of our favorite designers.
What you’ll see here is a selection of some of the very finest living rooms we’ve ever seen. The detail and scale of these rooms is beyond anything a commonplace home could dream of.
We’re going to explore multiple facets of what defines luxury for people. What do you think of when the word comes up? Maybe you’ve got a classical idea, full of marble expanses, ornate wood furniture, and vaulted ceilings. Maybe you picture something more contemporary, with sleek lines and fresh materials interacting in a novel way.
The point is, there’s no one look that defines luxury, and no single home style that can encompass its complexity.
As you browse our gallery, be sure to keep an eye out for the individual features that most excite you. Starting from the elements and moving on up to the big picture is how we can learn what our own sense of luxury truly means.
Our tactile experience of the furniture, flooring, walls, and every other element of a living room is what defines it for us, so a focus on these details is something to keep in mind.
No matter what style you settle on, there are no wrong ways to add luxury to a living room. With our selection of immaculate examples, we hope you feel inspired for your own current or future home!

Luxury does not always mean expansiveness. This cozier living room is flush with textural detail and material richness, including a rustic industrial style coffee table at center and a massive area rug over hardwood flooring.
Sometimes luxury takes a less-is-more approach, as this modern minimalist living room shows. A pair of sleek low coffee tables stand on a white rug surrounded by transparent acrylic chairs and a massive leather sectional.
In a more expansive iteration of modern luxury, we see a vast shared space centered on a unique open fireplace, wrapped in full height glass. Contemporary seating surrounds a rich polished wood coffee table in perfect contrast with the bright flooring and walls.
This living room strives for a unique look, with deep grey tones on the walls, furniture, and patterned area rug in lieu of the popular off-white styles. The walls are pocked with display cutouts for displaying art, while both a rustic dresser and ultra-modern glass table share the room.
Resting in a unique position, situated at the bottom of a vast stairwell void, this bespoke living room showcases the minimalist aesthetic perfectly. A single leather sofa and small wood table sit across large format tile flooring from a slim media shelf and wall mounted television.
Luxury can take all sorts of forms.
