The spectacular shore view from this beach house is all the art that's necessary to complete the living room. It's gorgeous! Overstuffed upholstered chairs reflect a casual feel, and hardwood floors make for easy clean up. The coffee table with the rotating top is a unique and functional piece of furniture -- and conversation piece.
A white coffered ceiling looks down over this stylish, neutral living room design. A beige sofa features wood armrest panels and charcoal gray throw pillows. A pair of beige upholstered chairs turn into the low, wooden coffee table opposite a pair of chairs with black lather cushioning. Rock sculptures add a unique decoration and nice texture to the room.
An X-based bistro table is paired with upholstered chairs that draw their hue from the ocean view beyond. Aquatic-themed abstract art furthers the color scheme and adds a fun touch to the space.

This elegant great room features soft blue-green walls paired with gold accents, like the floral upholstered sofas.

Five sets of French doors offer natural light and immediate access to the 93-foot terrace.
Picture a living room that flows into a colorful, wide-open double terrace, and you'll soon see what Lieve Saether with Turnstyle Interior Design has created. Designed for a couple and their college-bound kid, this stylish outdoor space includes a blue-spotted upholstered bench, a large brown coffee table and an area rug that resembles a watercolor painting.
The open floor design of this modern living room and dining room plays heavily with daring geometric shapes. Wenge wrapping the walls and ceiling creates the geometric idea of a cube over the dining room while details like the X-based coffee table and cubed side table unify the design within the details. Softer textures like a silk area rug and leather and upholstered sofas soften the space to highlight the peaceful living environment.
The open floor plan of this home includes a cozy living room in a window-surrounded nook.

Gray and white patterned throw pillows add some design to the solids and a glass coffee table completes the space.
These two chairs were found in the trash (Ezelle's favorite type of furniture). She had them reupholstered in off-white leather and created a geometric pattern with studs all around the arms. The coffee table is created from a piece of glass that she sprayed a frosted color and two small book cases she laid on their side for extra storage.
The open concept floor plan is unified with a bright white color scheme. The living room features an upholstered navy chair and white and gray striped accent pillow to add color to the white palette. An interesting wood coffee table looks as if it could be the prize of an ocean adventure, which blends with the other furniture to create a beach-inspired design.
Light gray walls create a cool tone background for the red accent pieces to pop in this sitting room. A large red sectional is pairs with a red window seat cushion. The large coffee table and ottoman is upholstered with a pattern repeated on throw pillows to tie in the design throughout the room. A frame American flag adds a patriotic touch while complimenting the color scheme.
Designer Susan Brunstrum carefully followed her client's wishes when furnishing this two-story great room that features a wall of windows and an expansive brick fireplace. She employed a Ralph Lauren-type approach to selecting the dark brown leather sectional, beige club chair and upholstered ottoman that serves as a coffee table for the room. Especially fetching: the beach scene over the fireplace and the latticed piece behind it.
A traditional-style fireplace sets the stage in this cozy living room. On top of the mantel, a pair of fluted columns reach up to the ceiling. Matching columns also frame the French doors that lead out to the screened porch. Two neutral loveseats face one another to make entertaining easy. A brown tufted ottoman sits in between a set of upholstered armchairs and a rich wood coffee table.
Candice Olson, host of HGTV's "Candice Tells All," created this living room that blends style and function. She says, "It's important to know what makes the most sense for your lifestyle and home, so don't choose colors, fabrics or even materials that won't work for your family, children or pets." This living room's rustic wood coffee table, dark upholstered armchair and patterned area rug ensure a family-friendly space.
The multi-purpose design of the Mimico Storage Ottoman from Gus* Modern allows you to use this flexible piece of furniture as a bench, coffee table or ottoman in an entryway, bedroom or living room. It includes an upholstered top for comfortable seating, a hard surface top for resting items like sunglasses, and an open cubby for display storage of books and magazines.
French doors open from the living room to the den, revealing a pair of stools upholstered in a custom fabric. A large blue linen ottoman also serves as a coffee table, and two Griffin club chairs with nailhead trim create a cozy sitting area. White sheers filter the natural light and draw the eye up to the coffered ceiling to heighten the space, while a blue-and-white cotton rug softens the hardwood floor.
An outdoor living room features a mix of design elements, from the reclaimed woods on the coffee table and ceiling beams to the clean, contemporary lines of the woven and upholstered seating. The space is sited to take advantage of the sweeping coastal views, and it also opens to the indoors via a wide retractable glass wall that slides into a pocket door. Traditional lanterns light the space, giving a nod to the Mediterranean architecture.
Contemporary-style sofas, upholstered in durable Sunbrella fabric, feature aluminum frames and synthetic wicker bases — both recyclable. Two cube-shaped, industrial-style coffee tables were handcrafted from sustainable wood by carpenter David Brown. The yellow chairs provide a nice contrast against the black and white patterned pillows and add pops of color against the brick floor and accent landscaping wall.
White walls and high ceilings accented by arched entryways set the stage for a multi-layered design moment. The seating is the star in this space with two side chairs upholstered with handira - traditional Moroccan wedding blankets. Behind them a beaded Yoruba Chair showcases a colorful pattern. On the sofa, an Indian Kantha quilt covers the seat cushions accented by Indian block-print pillows. Add to that an ornately carved wooden coffee table, a beautifully decorated fireplace mantle and loads of art and accessories, and you have a perfectly designed desert oasis.
