The open-plan, two-story living room centers on a large L-shaped sectional in bright white, hugging an immense metallic coffee table. Loft-style second floor space overlooks the room with seamless glass walls for safety and clear visual space.
Staging a room to compliment the view can be difficult at times. This large l-shaped sectional creates a sight line that's low enough to capture the view while providing enough sitting for entertaining. Soft grays and whites magnify the large windows while the subtle pops of color enhance the picturesque view.
In this remodeled basement, heavy, gold drapes hang on garden-level windows, while a large L-shaped sectional is positioned in front of a padded ottoman and leather armchair. Track lighting, a table lamp, and a lampshade chandelier provide beautiful lighting for the basement space.
This enclosed porch with wood slat walls acts as an outdoor extension of the family living room. With a modern fireplace, an L-shaped sectional and a speaker system, the comforts of indoor living extend to this outdoor living space.
“We have two L-shaped sectionals facing each other, and then we have two niches that overlook the street,” says HGTV Smart Home 2015 designer Linda Woodrum. “Each of those has a chez that is really like a bed, so you could have people sleep there if you wanted.”
In the remodeling of this living space, a new open concept plan—and clever design strategies—allowed for a chef-grade kitchen, dining area and family room to flow seamlessly together. A long narrow dining table tucks neatly against an L-shaped banquette. In the family room, a large sectional handily covers seating needs.
