- Sofas – Living room furniture that would work in a modern designed living room should have a simplistic design and clean lines.
- Chairs -After choosing a sofa or love seat add a chair with the same simplistic design, you can have a little fun with this piece and add a pattern if you feel adventurous.
- Coffee Table – The coffee table is also a great place to add a pop of color into the room.
Window Treatments – Bamboo shades are a great way to bring a modern living room together, but they can also be expensive. A great alternative are plastic or vinyl shades made to look like bamboo, they are sold at large discount stores and other discount retailers.
Area Rug – Find an area rug with either a solid color or simple geometric shapes.
Wall Color – In a modern design the easiest and cheapest wall color is white, to add color hang some modern paintings. You can even create your own modern art by getting some blank pre-stretched canvas’s from your local craft store and paint each of them a solid bold color such as fire engine red.
Accent Pieces – You will not want to add to many accent pieces to keep the simple and clean look of modern design. A simple lamp, a geometric side table or a interesting vase.
