Outdoor Living Room with Modern Steel Roof Structure
This outdoor living room is defined by a modern steel roof structure that shades the outdoor kitchen and bar seating. The pavilion doubles as a modern sculptural landscape element to provide a focal point for the backyard.
Cast-in-place concrete walls support the roof structure of this stunning modern home, and the ceiling curvature brings focus down to the ocean view. Glass walls invite seamless indoor-outdoor living, while the use of a red motorcycle as an interior sculpture offsets the space with a burst of color.
Outdoor Living Room With Stone Fireplace and Chimney, Wicker Furniture and Green Accent Throw Pillows
All natural venner and wall stone form an outdoor living room under a cedar roof structure and LED lighting. Wicker arm chairs and a matching sofa surround a wooden coffee table facing the arched fireplace and mounted television. Neutral cushions are accented with green throw pillows.
In harmony with the floating concrete wall, this modern home's outdoor space features a roof that extends over glass panels with natural wood ceilings that carry over and blur the lines between the outdoor entertaining space and the living room.
Steel Beams, Hanging Daybed Offer Loft-Like Feel in Penthouse
A unique steel structure supporting the mansard roof of this Manhattan building was exposed during renovation to create a loft-like feeling in the penthouse. A daybed now hangs from one of the girders to provide extra seating in the open living room with a fun touch that might appeal to the family's two teenagers.
Contemporary art sculptures rappel down the concrete walls of this modern home living room. The glass staircase with steel and concrete elements provides an unobstructed view of the outdoors with exposed wood ceilings overhead.
With soaring ceilings, unexpected bursts of bright colors and soft, cozy textures, the living room of HGTV Dream Home 2014 blends everything there is to love about modern mountain living. Steel collar ties support the weight of the roof and, paired with glue-laminated wood beams, offer a striking visual element.
A high-pitched roof gives a family starry views from the outdoor porch of a rustic lake home in Georgia. Builder Mike Hammersmith came up with the double-sided fireplace with steel pocket doors that slide behind it. On nice days, the pocket doors can open and connect the living room with the porch.
This five bedroom, five bathroom estate in Houston, TX, offers more than 7500 sq. ft. of charming, open concept design. In the living room, the space offers a calming neutral tone and flows naturally into the dining space and eat-in kitchen, with high ceilings and modern steel and glass doors lining the wall to the outdoor space.
The "treehouse feel" of the HGTV Dream Home 2011 is especially evident in this room with its abundance of wood and autumn-inspired colors. Floor-to-ceiling windows and maple flooring lend an air of the outdoors, while modern furniture and a steel wall sculpture make it a comfortable and lively space for entertaining.
