Spacious Great Room With Inviting Furniture Layout
If your living room lacks the square footage to accommodate end tables, consider forgoing them in favor of a table positioned behind the sofa. Here, the empty space on each side of the sofa allows for proper flow to and from the nearby kitchen; however, the sofa table still allows enough tabletop surface to display decorative objects and table lamps.
The round table and patterned, upholstered chairs seat up to eight people. To add storage, designers brought in a buffet that is covered in faux-shagreen to add some nice texture against the wallpaper.
Shades of brown are an excellent way to accent feminine details in a living room’s design. In this living space designed by Mariah O’Brien, the seating area has soft and organic details, like purple florals, that are grounded by warm tones of light brown and chocolate.
Mulberry Purple Home Office With Clean-Lined Furniture
Mulberry purple walls provide a rich, vibrant backdrop for this stylish home office. A clean-lined desk and chair with slim silhouettes pair with grayscale artwork, allowing the wall color to take center stage.
This eclectic living room features large windows that allow natural light to illuminate the space. Lime green curtains and armchairs add bright accents, while a purple area rug and plush ottomans add fun contrast. A red brick fireplace adds a traditional touch.
Furnishing a living room with a nearby staircase can present a traffic flow obstacle. Similar to hallways, it's best to think of staircases as high-traffic areas requiring at least 36 inches of clearance. Rather than outfitting the walls around a staircase with heavy furniture, try using them to showcase art or accent pieces, such as sculptural chairs or occasional seating in the form of ottomans or lightweight benches.
This opulent dining room incorporates purple and gold accents in its heavy drapery, unique carved dining room chairs, rug and wall color. A large glass chandelier hangs above an oval dining room table.
Transitional Neutral and Purple Living Room With Graphic Rug
A traditional tufted sofa with nailhead trim is brightened with a yellow and a purple patterned throw pillow. Lavender pottery sits on the glass coffee table, and a darker purple lamp rests on the matching end table. A contemporary purple rug adds graphic punch to the space, while abstract painted canvases bring a soft touch to the walls.
Blush-colored roses bloom on the opposite side of the space, creating a display that distracts from the sleek black TV. A textured buffet table below offers storage for DVDs and complements the room's jewel-toned furnishings.
Beautiful Contemporary Living Room With Violet Velvet Sofa, Lavender Details and Coffered Ceiling
Gray tones and a check-like design on the rug compliment the coffered ceiling with gray panels. A rich purple velvet sofa is decorated with pastel throw pillows. Tufted lavender chairs complete the seating arrangement around the low, cube coffee table. Metallic finishes accent the polished design.
Transitional Mauve Living Room With Black Leather Chairs, Glass Coffee Table and Crystal Fringed Chandelier
Pairing these black leather chairs with a mauve wall gives the color a lavender-like finish. Throw pillows in mauve tones create a beautiful color balance and soften the seating. Tall potted plants and coffee table plants add vibrant natural complimentary color. The gallery wall and chandelier finish the feminine feel of the room.
A unique deep purple dining room features heavy drapes and matching valance on large window with sheer curtain; an ornate crystal glass chandelier; a silver metallic sideboard, a gleaming oval dining room table; and six twisted, gold leaf, metal chairs.
