An L-shaped sofa in the living room next to a robust wooden coffee table entices guests and family to enjoy each other’s company. A socially compact living room with the necessities at hand is preferred to a spacious but cold space. The Brindabella Residence offers a version of this idea, a very warm and sleek design, a hybrid between minimalism, traditionalism and functionality.
Homes are not always dramatic and dazzling, but details make a huge difference even in the most compact spaces. Take this townhouse as example: part of a luxurious NYC West Village townhouse, this comfortable furnishings and colors create a parlor room where socialization is key. The fireplace and floor to ceiling French windows leading to a terrace that overlooks the garden are massively charming, but all the details shape a elegant yet snug living room.
When polled, we all agreed that there are a few key elements every living room simply must contain. There’s the couch, comfortable and large enough to seat everyone in the family. Then there’s the accent furniture that makes the space pop. And we can’t forget the TV that often serves as the hearth of the home in the digital age. But what sets one living room apart from another? It’s all about the personality and the pieces you gather in the space. We polled our Freshome team to find out which pieces are absolutely critical in a dream living room and which can make all the difference when it comes to your design.
