Sophisticated and elegant, this living room features three areas: an intimate grouping of chairs for conversation, an oversized sectional for relaxing and watching TV, and a table and chairs for playing games. Vibrant throw pillows and a striped ottoman provide color in the otherwise neutral living space.

In a living room where space is at a premium, there may not be enough tabletop surface to add framed photos or treasured objects. To inject personality into a living room without taking up valuable tabletop space, consider a gallery wall grouping. Here, a tall wall features nine oversized black-and-white prints of the family with a steel console placed below to anchor the space. When adding a console table to a living room, stick with a maximum depth of 18 inches to keep from impeding traffic flow.

This living room features logs reclaimed from 19th century homes, a high ceiling with antler chandelier and exposed beam, a large fireplace with stone surround, and abundant seating in multiple sitting area groupings.
Coffee tables can make a huge impact on the look and functionality of a living room. With their lack of sharp edges, round coffee tables or ottomans are great for living rooms used by children; however, they can result in wasted space when placed next to square or rectangular sofas and chairs. To outfit a seating area with plenty of useable tabletop surface (or multipurpose occasional seating), consider grouping two or three round coffee tables or ottomans together.
The open concept plan and contemporary design of the living room create an industrial — yet also light and airy — feel. Across the broad expanse of floor, small groupings of furniture make intimate conversation areas.
