The modern minimalist movement is still in full swing, with many homeowners updating their spaces in favor of uncluttered, simplified and contemporary designs. If you’re planning a full-fledged remodel or simply want to update your living room furniture, minimalism is a trendy yet timeless way to go. From contemporary furniture to minimalist décor, let’s take a look at several ideas for achieving a modern minimalist look in your living room.
1. Reduce Clutter
The first step in designing any minimalist space is to remember the main tenant of the minimalist movement: reducing clutter! The idea is to remove items that are not essential to the space, and only keep the pieces that serve a purpose. Before bringing in new furniture to create a contemporary minimalist look, start by eliminating clutter. If you never use your love seat, get rid of it. If your wall décor is just there to fill an empty space, leave the wall blank instead.
2. Find Purposeful Décor
Creating a minimalist room doesn’t necessarily mean you have to remove every bit of décor. You still want to design a space that’s visually pleasing and reflects your personality. So, try to minimize the décor and ornamentation of the room in a way that still allows expression. For example, instead of a cluttered wall of picture frames, highlight a single oversized canvas photo in black-and-white.
It also helps to find objects that look good and serve a purpose, in keeping with the minimalist style. Purposeful décor might be a bold light fixture, a cozy textured rug or even a wall-mounted planter for herbs or succulents.
3. Choose a Simple Color Palette
It may seem obvious, but make sure to simplify the room’s color palette as much as possible. Avoid wall colors that are overly bold or bright. In general, go for softer, neutral colors in either warm or cool tones. Gray, white and cream are great places to start.
4. Know When to Go Bold
Many minimalist room designs can benefit from a touch of boldness. The hard part is knowing when to go bold. The key is a touch of bold color, and not overdoing it. If your mostly white living room feels blank, the simple addition of a charcoal gray rug or dark-colored contemporary coffee table will help breathe life into the design.
5. Go for Smaller Furniture
For true minimalism, go small when it comes to choosing your furniture. Choose a simple, modern sofa or love seat that’s only as big as you need it to be. In fact, if you only need to seat 1 or 2 people on a regular basis, simple yet comfortable accent chairs are a good minimalist alternative to a traditional sofa.
If you don’t need a huge coffee table surface, opt for a miniature side table (even a repurposed stool works great) or folding tray table. Rather than setting your TV on an oversized entertainment center, mount it on the wall or use a small stand.
If you have a larger family or need the extra seating space, many modern living room sets have a minimalist style while offering the comfort and size that you need.
If you live in an apartment or home that’s on the small side, it can be difficult to find furniture that fits your space. To avoid a cramped, cluttered look and make the most of your small apartment, here are some stylish, space-saving furniture ideas to get you started.
Daybeds & Sleeper Sofas
Dual-purpose furniture is a great way to increase the functionality of a limited space without adding clutter. If your apartment is a one-bedroom but you need a second bed, your options are plentiful: from daybeds to futons and sleeper sofas, there are a few ways you can maximize your furniture even in a tiny space:
Daybed: A daybed looks like a tall sofa but is actually as comfortable to sleep on as a traditional bed. Some daybeds also have trundles—an extra bed that pulls out from the bottom but is hidden neatly underneath when not in use. Great for regular use in small bedrooms or shared kids’ rooms.
Futon: Futons are a classic dual-purpose piece. They offer a minimalist look and can be converted from a couch to a bed in an instant. This option is a great alternative to a space-hogging guest bed.
Sleeper Sofa: Sleeper sofas are designed to look and function just like a traditional sofa, but they feature a fold-out mattress inside. Twin-size sleepers take up about as much floor space as a loveseat, while a queen is equivalent to a full sofa.
No matter what style you prefer, each of these sofa beds can blend in with the existing décor in your living area or bedroom for a contemporary look.
The living room of a small apartment isn’t likely to have sufficient space for a huge recliner or wide accent chair. But that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice having a comfy chair altogether. Minimalist chairs are typically a great option for small spaces—look for armless or slim-arm designs like our Tasia or Olson Accent Chair.
Likewise, dining chairs with a slimmer profile are great for reducing the amount of space taken up by your dining set. Make sure to choose chairs that can slide fully beneath the table when not in use, and opt for a simpler design to limit visual clutter.
Occasional Tables typically take up lots of space, but there are a few ways you can minimize your small apartment’s tables while maximizing their functionality:
Tray Tables: A portable, folding alternative to side tables, tray tables can be pulled up to the sofa to serve as a small dining surface. Just fold and store when not in use.
Nesting Tables: If you have space for an end table in your living room, a nesting table can help you maximize storage space and provide an extra pull-out surface when needed. With this option, there’s no need for a coffee table!
Pub Tables: 3- or 4-seater pub tables provide a compact alternative to dining tables.
Finally, if you don’t have much space in your apartment’s living room, opt for a love seatinstead of a regular sofa. It takes up much less space while still providing a cozy spot to relax and watch TV.
The perfect patio set is one that brings the comfort and style of your indoor rooms to your outdoor space, making it feel like a cozy extension of your home. Perhaps your home’s interior has plenty of character, yet your patio has… not so much. Maybe you’ve recently redecorated inside and want to breathe fresh, new life into your outdoor living area. Or, like many homeowners, you’re simply looking to revitalize your patio’s outdated look.
No matter the case, investing in beautiful new patio furniture is the perfect way to bring style and warmth to the outdoors, helping you create the backyard getaway you’ve always wanted. Take a look at the contemporary patio sets below to find the one with your name on it:
Comfortable Patio Set
If comfort is the name of the game, the Lakeside 4 Pc. patio sectional is a winner. You can’t go wrong with the luxury of an outdoor sectional that’s designed just as much for comfort as it is for weather-proof durability. The calming blues and neutral tones of this set will help give your patio a relaxing, casual vibe. Perfect for snuggling up to a loved one, reading a good book in the fresh air or conversing over drinks with friends.
Dining Table Patio Set
The essential complement to an outdoor kitchen or grill, the Oakwood 7 Pc. patio set features a rustic-inspired (and rust-resistant) outdoor dining table that seats six. Whether it’s shaded by a patio awning or just under the sun, this set is designed to stay strong and stylish in all kinds of weather. With a woodsy style, comfy chairs and plenty of table space for a full spread, you can enjoy a poolside lunch with the kids and late-night dinner parties alike.
Fire Pit Patio Set
If your patio gets chilly on cool nights, a fire pit will bring literal and visual warmth to your outdoor space. We like the Cimon 5 Pc. fire pit set for its bold yet contemporary look. With an inviting and functional 48” fire pit table and 4 chairs with brick-red cushions this set is everything you need for a comfortable evening around the fire. Featuring an easy-to-use gas fire bowl that ignites with the touch of a button, summer nights have never been cozier.
It’s the beginning of springtime in a still-new year, which means it’s the perfect time to freshen up your home with some of the latest and greatest design trends of 2018. For a glimpse into the top interior design trends that are dominating the market, take a look at these ten style, décor and furniture ideas.
1. Luxurious Purples
You might’ve heard that UltraViolet is Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year. This striking purple hue is perfect for adding a touch of bold, vibrant, fresh color to any space in the house. But the trend isn’t limited to just Ultra Violet. From mauve sofas to purple counter stools to violet area rugs, many shades of purple are luxurious, unexpected and regal, often pairing well with mid-century modern design.
2. Eclectic Home Accents
Add a colorful, unexpected edge to any room with eclectic designs that set your space apart. Pick an intriguing piece of décor or a single bold accent for each room to give your home a curated look. From patterned rugs to architectural light fixtures to eye-catching ottomans, there are plenty of ways to decorate in a trendy, eclectic style.
3. Rolled Back Chairs
Balancing classic beauty with modern minimalism, rolled back chairs are timelessly stylish. Use these versatile dining chairs with or without slipcovers to achieve the perfect look for your room.
4. Tufted Sofas
When it comes to living room furniture that packs a punch, there’s no better way to make a stylish statement this spring than with a new sofa. If your current couch is feeling drab or plain, breathe life into the room with a tufted sofa that has plenty of character. Indulge in the comfort of a U-shaped sectional, bring a touch of old-world charm with a leather sofa or blend traditional style with modern design.
5. Mid-Century Servers & Kitchen Carts
A retro mint-green cart adds a pop of color to a neutral kitchen, while a versatile mid-century server makes a beautiful statement piece. These additions to your kitchen or dining room setup are practical as well as trendy, keeping in line with the latest interior design trends of 2018.
6. Industrial Inspired Lighting
Touches of industrial design can add a real sense of character and style to any space, whether you incorporate just a few industrial elements or go all-out. Either way, lighting fixtures inspired by this trend are a great place to start. From industrial ceiling lamps with a bronze patina to industrial-style chandeliers, make a statement in any room with this popular look.
7. Gray Leather
From deep, sumptuous charcoal gray to lustrous silver-gray, living room furniture in gray-toned leather is a rising trend. From sofas to ottomans, you can’t go wrong with this classic material in a chic, modern color.
8. Colorful & Mismatched Chairs
For added character, pair a couple of colorful side chairs with a more neutral set of dining chairs for a chic, mismatched look. Invoke a country-inspired style with sage wood, or opt for timeless-with-a-twist with vibrant orange. Not one for bold colors? Mix it up by pairing two mismatched styles, like classic wooden dining chairs with metal chairs at each end.
9. Solid Wood Dining Tables
Many of 2018’s most popular home designs center on minimalism, a style that proves less is more. Keep your dining room furniture simple, raw and beautiful with a wood table that has a trendy reclaimed look. The chunky, solid style brings warmth and character to your space.
10. Textured Area Rugs
Adding visual texture to a room is the perfect way to update your space and stay on trend. Add a striking luster with a shimmering shag rug or make a glamorous impact with a faux sheepskin rug.

If you’ve been feeling like something is missing from your living room, bedroom or dining room décor, an area rug might be the answer. A well-chosen area rug that coordinates with your furniture and décor can elevate the space and bring your room’s design together. Here are a few considerations to keep in mind when choosing the right area rug for any room:
1. Size & Shape
While the appearance and style of a rug may be your top priority, it’s also important to consider size. The size of an area rug has a big impact on how large the room appears and how balanced it feels. The most common area rug sizes are 5×8, 8×10 and 9×12 feet. Here are some rug sizing tricks to help you choose the best size for your space:
Larger rugs can help make the room appear bigger.
Keep at least 18 inches of floor exposed at the edges of the rug. This helps ensure the room appears large, but still open and not cramped.
A 5×8 rug is a good choice for under the coffee table in your living room, or for an entryway. You can also use it in a bedroom, with some of the rug positioned under the end of the bed and the rest exposed.
An 8×10 rug also makes a great living room area rug. Place it under the coffee table and arrange the furniture so that the front legs of the sofa and chairs are on the rug.
A 9×12 rug works beautifully in most spaces, assuming the room is large enough (remember, leave 18 inches around the edges of the rug). In a living area, usually all the living room furniture can be placed on it. In the dining room, where you want all legs of the dining chairs to sit on the rug even when the chairs are pulled out, a 9×12 is generally perfect. As a bedroom area rug, this size can be placed horizontally under the bed and nightstands with room to spare.
A 12×15 rug or larger is well-suited for extra-large rooms.
Round rugs are ideal for use in entryways, beneath round dining room tables, or for certain living room furniture arrangements (such as those with round coffee tables or circular setups).
If you’re struggling to decide what color area rug to choose, consider these general guidelines:
If your sofa and chairs are a solid color, choose a patterned rug that features that color or colors in the same family.
If your furniture is patterned or especially bold, opt for a neutral rug that will complement rather than compete.
For dark furniture, choose a lighter rug color to keep the space looking open
If your walls, furniture and décor are generally neutral, you can add a splash of color with a bold rug.
Regardless of the design style you chose for your home, an element of texture is essential. Home accents like area rugs are a great way to add visual texture and contrast to your room. Here are a few beautiful ideas to consider:
Hand-Woven: Unique textile rugs with a hand-crafted look can add a rustic or sophisticated aesthetic, depending on what style you’re looking for. We like the Surya Tahoe Area Rug for its striking texture.
Faux Fur: Faux fur rugs are perfect for adding texture and comfort to your room. This Linon White Faux Sheepskin Area Rug is a gorgeous complement to many popular design styles, including mid-century modern and farmhouse chic.
Shag: Shaggy rugs are back in style, thanks to their unmistakable texture and softness underfoot. The Celine Area Rug adds a unique luster and comfort to your floor.
When it comes to keeping a kid’s room organized, it sounds like no easy task. To create a stylish and practical storage system your kids will stick to, follow our tips for fool-proof organization for toys, clothes, and more in your kids’ bedrooms.
#1: Switch to Bunk Beds
For the ultimate space saver in a shared kids’ bedroom, bunk beds are the answer. Bunk and loft beds take up less space than separate beds, and they offer built-in storage options to maximize floor space even further. Add-ons like stairway chests and hanging caddies provide additional space to store toys, clothes, and more. As a bonus, kids love bunk beds! For teens and tweens, a loft bed provides ample space underneath for a desk area, which is perfect for small bedrooms.
#2: Utilize the Space Under the Bed
Under-bed storage is an essential way to preserve a room’s floor space and keeps items organized. Use rolling storage bins to make easily accessible drawers that are the perfect size for holding clothes, books, toys, shoes, and bedding. Utilizing the empty space under your kids’ beds can be a practical alternative to buying another dresser or trying to fit everything in the closet. It also gives kids an easy place to put things away, ensuring they keep their room clutter-free.
Captain’s beds are another way to save space—these unique, space-conscious bed frames feature built-in drawers and shelves for added functionality.
#3: Make the Most of Wall Space
If your kids’ bedroom is on the small side or they have lots of toys to store, it’s best to utilize wall space as much as possible. Use shelves, hanging baskets, wall cubes, and crates to give your walls a purpose and move items off the floor. For the boy or girl with a large stuffed animal collection, install a hammock in the corner of the room. Add a hanging organizer over the door, too, to keep items like shoes and small toys in their place.
#4: Give Everything a Home
Clothes go in the closet. Books go on the shelves. Toys go in the storage bins under the bed. No matter how you keep your kids’ bedroom organized, making sure every item has a dedicated “home” makes it easy to keep things clean and put away at the end of the day.
#5: Keep Track of Small Toys
Whether your kid is a fan of LEGO, likes to draw, or has an extensive collection of other tiny toys, small items need their own storage system. Use clear storage bins the size of shoe boxes and label each one to keep related items together. Sort by relevant characteristics such as color or category. Cube storage or closet shelves are great places to keep those tiny items organized.
Pantone announced the color of 2018 and it has since made its way in designs all around the nation. If you are planning on using Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year in Ultra Violet for your next living room, consider adding small statement pieces to give your space a refreshing pop of color. This deep-hued purple embodies individuality and spirituality, carrying out a bold and refreshing look that reflects what we need in our world today.
Because Ultra Violet is such a lush, deeply-saturated hue, small doses can create a large impact in all areas of the home. Begin with the Surya Zahra Area Rug that showcases a harmonious color palette in a unique, Boho-inspired pattern that will create a bold statement in this Mid-Century Modern living room. The Rocky Black Sofa and Armchair provide a retro-glam flair that also come in a variety of colors. Lighten up your space with the Antwerp floor lamp and Beoir Ceiling Lamp, showcasing exposed golden spheres that radiate a warm, cozy atmosphere. Finish off this look with the burnished gold medal from the Modern Reflections Accent Table and Andrea Wall Mirror that will help set off this deep purple hue.
When high-fashion glam and traditional elegance come together, the Paradigm Collection ties in flawlessly with deep hues of teal and silver accents for the perfect haute-couture living room. Teal combines calming properties of blues and greens, promoting revitalization as well as open lines of communication for the core to any home.
The Paradigm Collections paired with the dark teal colors from the Dalyn Modern Gray Teal area rug and the Blue Gradient wall decor provides a transitional and refreshing touch to any living room. The geometric lines from the Kaskade 3 Pc. tables and the Gallan White TV stand restores a refreshing balance and modern flare. Alongside this collection, the Jena table lamp, Savoy floor lamp, and the Platinum Mirror pairs nicely with the romantic details from the side pillows and silver nail heads of the Paradigm accent chair, tying in a modern and sophisticated flare that will catch the eyes of all guests this season.
