Night or day, this urban living room always has an incredible view. The white leather furniture mimics the white of the skyscrapers outside the window and makes a nice contrast with the dark wood floors.
Open shelving adds an industrial touch while pulling all the homeowner's curated pieces together for a comfortable, lived-in feel. Exposed duct work and cable lighting accentuate the urban setting, while midcentury details polish off the design.
Although the tight living room of Briana and Buzz's Brooklyn loft only has 10-by-12-feet of useable space, it seems open, airy and spacious thanks to a great space plan and a plethora of space saving solutions — some simply practical, others decorative.
The design of this living room picks up the architecture's urban edginess—exposed beams, metal ducts—and incorporates them into the look. A spiral staircase leads between the two levels. The barstools and coffee table are metal, the sofa black leather with nailhead trim.

Modern elements like the abstract artwork and sleek club chair meet steampunk elements such as the tufted leather sofa, warm lighting and brassy accents. The moody color palette easily unites both styles.
Thinset mortar, paint and stain were used to artificially age the brick wall in this Atlanta townhome, giving it a more urban feel. The thick, extra long curtains may be drawn to completely block out the natural light, adding to the moody feel created by the warm interior lighting.
Broad, industrial windows and exposed brick walls form the backdrop of this open-concept living space. Crisp, geometric lines in the modern furnishings echo the windows' grid, while a subtly textured rug anchors the seating area and softens the space. Complementary hues of blue and orange pop against neutral grays and browns.
