One of the most fun pieces to shop for your dream living room is the accent loveseat or sofa. While you may want to go more traditional with your primary couch color (see below), this is a place to have some fun. With maximalism trending, who says you can’t get a jewel-toned sofa is a rich velvet? Or a bold, patterned upholstery? Really, this is your opportunity to dream something up in your head, then buy it for your home.
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.
Daring to use glass divider walls in your home could be surprisingly helpful and visually attractive. This Amsterdam apartment boasts a transparent living room designed by Denoldervleugels Architects & Associates, where a neutral color palette was attractively contrasted by dark “separating” frames that add depth to the open floor-plan apartment. This solution allows a visual connection between space that runs all the way outside, thanks to transparency.
