Neutral Sofa With Midcentury Modern Light and End Table
Sometimes, the architecture of your home is the best guide for the style of the furnishings you fill it with; other times, its surroundings will direct you. When choosing furniture for this living room, designer Kristen Rivoli took the latter tack. “This space is in a building right next to the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), in New York City, so our inspiration was the classic midcentury modern furniture you might find at the museum,” she says. “We found the side table at a vintage furniture store, but the sofa is new—it’s available through KRID but it has the lines of a classic tuxedo-style sofa. The Brittania light fixture is also new but adds to the midcentury style, and the toss pillows are custom-made in a mellow color palette typical of the ‘50s and ‘60s.”
A painted, white brick fireplace with wooden mantel above the hearth provides a unique focal point in this rustic modern living room. A comfy cream-colored armchair with ottoman sits beside the large sliding glass door letting in lots of natural light.

A spider-like black chandelier adds an intriguing element to the timeless style of this dining space. Black chairs seated at the wood table create a timeless color combination against the surrounding white walls and window curtains.
Painted white bricks extend from the fireplace hearth to the ceiling in this transitional living space. Framed black-and-white abstract art sits on the wooden mantel just above a comfy, cushioned armchair with ottoman.
Beautifully designed architectural angles give this room a classic Midcentury aesthetic, with natural light flowing in from a small rectangular window to the sunroom with dark hardwood floors, a custom built-in for books and colorful furniture facing a view of the lawn.
“I find the majority of my vintage pieces at thrift stores,” says designer Tasha Schultz, who created this inviting midcentury-influenced living room. “I always have a running list of things I am on the hunt for and dimensions (if need be). Don’t get discouraged if you don’t find something at your first stop, vintage hunting requires patience and perseverance!”

This dining room features a number of midcentury modern elements such as the wooden wishbone dining chairs and the tiered chandelier. The space features a wood floor and wooden china cabinet, and an orange "Brooklyn Map" representing the owners' former residence adorns the wall.
A graphic blue rug covers the floor space and adds visual interest to the living room. Midcentury modern furnishings create an elegant space to gather with friends and family before and/or after dinner.
