47 Beautiful Modern Living Room Ideas (in Pictures)
Welcome to today’s gallery, showcasing a dizzying variety of beautifully luxurious, modern living rooms.
The living room, standing as the social center of any home, is often the focal point of style and design. These rooms stand as shining examples of this idea. Often fleshed out in white, for an expansive visual sense, these grand living rooms feature an array of common themes, expressed in wildly varying permutations.
One major element to note is the prevalence of modern, low-slung sofas and matching height coffee tables. These are often bold, space filling pieces of furniture that grant style as well as comfort.
Another running theme are large expanses of glass, from full height windows to room-size sliding or folding panels that blur the line between living room and patio spaces. You may also note the thoughtful deployment of natural wood paneling, from floors to ceilings to intricate wall details.
Even in the most starkly white, modern rooms, a splash of our oldest natural material adds interesting detail.
While some of these living rooms are immense, two story creations that could swallow a modest home, other, more cozy examples manage to fold in as much luxury and progressive design in a fraction of the space.
The size matters only as far as thoughtful design can carry it. Each of these spectacular rooms fills its given space with elegance and luxury in a unique fashion.
