Traditional vs Modern Living Rooms

by Guest on Dec 14, 2011

Modern living room furniture can differ wildly from piece to piece. Many modern sofas, sectionals and loveseats may be designed and imported from Spain, Italy, Germany, Netherlands, and other European countries. These modern living room pieces are generally upholstered in a number of different ways, mainly consisting of Italian & top grain leather, vinyl, suede, microfiber and microsuede. Many sofas and sectionals will actually feature built in end tables, storage space, cup holders, adjustable headrests & footrests and even architectural lighting or LED lighting incorporated right into the design. The designs are usually unique and beautiful, this includes many that are unsymmetrical, artsy, curved, boxy or feature straight contemporary lines. Modern living rooms tend to lay there focus around the sofa or sectional and also the entertainment unit.

Modern entertainment centers may be wall units, which means they have a section of them that actually mounts on the wall itself instead of sitting on the ground, or just standard tv stands. The modloft irving is a great example of a modern wall unit. Popular finishes for modern living room furniture include high gloss lacquer, wood veneer, solid wood, and natural wood tiling. You can expect to see a lot of intricate glass work built into the coffee tables, cocktail tables and end tables. Traditional living room furniture offers up a stark difference between its modern counterparts.

Traditional furniture has a more “heavy” feel to it, and tends to have its focus around wooden entertainment centers and comfortable seating arrangements. Traditional sofas, couches, loveseats and sectionals will be heavily padded and comfortable. They will be upholstered from leather, vinyl, microsuede or microfiber and feature more subtle colors such as tan, sand, brown, black, cream and sometimes even floral or antiqued patterns. Many traditional pieces will offer intricate wood work and carvings in the details such as the armrests, legs, and other accents. Typically solid wood will be used in the entertainment centers and they will be large and center of attention. You can expect to find many 18th and 19th century as well as antiqued and victorian themes in traditional living rooms. The coffee, cocktail and end tables will be either all wood or wood with glass inserts with claw-legged feet a common accent. The living room is your common ground in your home, the one spot where everyone can come together to relax and enjoy themselves. This is why it is very important one makes this area comfortable, open, and inviting. Traditional and modern living room designs can be extremely different from one to the next and it is important you pick one which defines your individual nature at the same time making it open and available for the family.
