To achieve that classy yet simple look of clean lines and geometric shapes the furniture pieces you choose should feature soft and rounded edges and smooth, polished surfaces without much adornment. That’s why contemporary tables are often made from light-coloured woods like white oak, timber, maple and birch that have very little graining and give the furniture that polished look. A wooden coffee table matched with a statement leather sofa and an ottoman are all the elements you would need to give your contemporary living room an inviting sitting area.

Contemporary interiors are all about mixing and matching colour pallets to create a cohesive space that reflects a smart combination of complementary colours. To achieve this we suggest you choose main furniture items such as sofas, ottomans and armchairs in soft neutral hues and brake the monotony with boldly coloured accessories like rugs, pictures, cushions and ornaments. The truth is that with a little attention to detail and a dose of creativity you can easily give your interiors that unique elegant look, so start creating your contemporary living room and don’t forget to have fun while doing it.
