Soft, subtle gray tones are popular right now—for good reason. Gray is a versatile neutral that can be either cool or warm, which makes it a trendy choice for contemporary color schemes. The Claudine 4 Pc. Sectional is a stunning cuddler that’s as chic as it is comfy.

The various tables in your living room don’t have to be boring—many occasional tables actually have a lot going on. They can be more than just a way to hold cocktails and coffee cups. Let’s look at four ways coffee tables are unexpectedly functional.
#1: Drawers & Storage
Maximize your living area’s storage space with a cocktail table that features drawers and storage compartments. Tables like the Carlyle or Sedona will help you store everything from TV remotes and DVDs to books, blankets and drink coasters. This extra storage space allows you to keep clutter off the surface of the table and easily access your items when you need them.
#2: Lift Tops
Some cocktail tables have an innovative hidden feature that makes them all the more convenient and functional: lift tops. Lift-top cocktail tables like the Arcadia and Le Mans are perfect for making mealtime easier or creating a raised surface for holding your laptop, books, hobby supplies and more. When not in use, these lift-top surfaces can be easily lowered for a streamlined look. Plus, interior storage spaces offer added convenience and versatility.
Shelves are another feature that add storage space to your cocktail tables, and they’re also a great way to display home accents that express your style. Options like the Lexenburg Console Table or Sebring Lift-Top Cocktail Table offer shelves that give plenty of space to store and showcase your belongings and décor.
#4: Nesting Tables
Perfect for smaller living rooms, nesting tables have the convenience of multiple tables without taking up too much floor space. Simply slide out a smaller table from underneath when you need it, and put it back when you’re done. These Vinton Charcoal or Wayhill nesting tables are two excellent choices for your family room.
With these ideas for functional cocktail tables, you’re sure to find a table that works for your space and sense of style.
Beautiful and contemporary through-and-through, this family room is the complete package: comfortable and modern, with the perfect balance of timeless subtlety and trendy elegance. Let’s take a look at contemporary family room furniture to help you achieve this design in your own home!
This look is best suited to a neutral modern color scheme, but that doesn’t mean it lacks character. Off-white, warm gray, soft beige, slate and taupe are excellent wall color choices for this room’s style. Accents in black, deep brown and silver add richness and contrast for a cohesive room design that offers plenty of contemporary appeal.
Sofa & Seating
The stylish, modern Athena Gray Sofa serves as a comfortable and contemporary centerpiece for this family room. Complete with patterned throw pillows that add color and upholstered in cozy polyester, this sofa is both beautiful and durable. Paired with the coordinating ottoman and a complementary Sydney Gray Power Recliner, it’s a set that will bring luxury to your space in an understated way.
TV Stand & Tables
The contemporary styling of the Trimble Cappuccino 60” TV Stand features asymmetrical shelves and a minimalist look, for a functional yet attractive appearance. As the entertainment center for your modern family room, this TV stand is a versatile piece that complements most décor. The simple and elegant Mikkel Black 3 Pc. Table Set, which includes a modern black coffee table and side tables, looks great alongside it, while providing plenty of space for holding drinks, books and more.
Décor & Accents
Décor brings this contemporary look together by drawing in colors from the furniture. This unique Zinc Flowers wall art is a striking, sculptural piece that brings a modern rustic touch to the space. The Hannah Mirror features a timeless, minimalist style that brightens the room and adds the illusion of more space.
This strikingly textured Huntley Area Rug provides a perfect color contrast to the sofa and tables for a trendy yet timeless aesthetic. Plush and hand-loomed, this area rug gives the room a “put-together” look and provides warmth and coziness.
Stylish lighting is essential in a contemporary living space, and the Monte Floor Lamp and Lyla Table Lamp make a great pair. Decorative but not too dramatic, these lamps provide perfect ambient lighting for any family room. A table lamp on either side of the sofa is a good way to balance the light and add convenience.

Like many homeowners, you might have a certain room in the house that feels a little dreary. If the room is feeling like a bit of a blank slate with one too many neutral tones, you’re probably looking for a way to bring a touch of color and brightness to the space. Even if you prefer neutral colors, a pop of something more vibrant here and there is a great way to help the space feel more complete and expressive.
Let’s take a look at five easy ways to add color to a neutral room.
1. Go for Bold Furniture
If your furniture is drab and outdated, it might be time to go shopping! If you’re worried about replacing a neutral living room set with something more colorful, have no fear—bold and eye-catching sofas and chairs are right on trend. You can’t go wrong with a pop of color like a luxurious red sofa or a striking aqua accent chair.
2. Add Color Underfoot
If you aren’t ready to take the plunge with colorful furniture, there are plenty of other options that add color in a more subtle way. For starters, you can add personality with an area rug in a color that pops. Choose a hue that complements the existing neutral tones in your space.
3. Paint an Accent Wall
If you want some color in your room but don’t want to go all-out and paint every wall, consider an accent wall. A pop of color on the room’s central wall adds instant charm and refreshes the space beautifully.
4. Bring the Outdoors In
It’s a simple suggestion, but it can create a dramatic effect. Simply decorating your space with a few well-placed plants adds freshness and color to your space. Whether you like the simplicity of potted houseplants or you want to arrange fresh-cut flowers, the stunning greens of foliage are sure to make any room feel brighter and more colorful.
5. Accessorize with Personality
If your space seems to lack character, the solution could be as simple as adding a few coordinating accessories in an accent color. This way, you can keep the color palette mostly neutral and add as many colorful pieces as you want. Choose an accent color you like and find a few home accents to arrange around the room. A couple throw pillows, a bold table lamp and a coordinating pouf are all you need to bring the room together.
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.
Now that you have your new furniture, it’s time to show it off with the perfect lighting. The right lighting can be the seamless way to enhance a focal piece, open up a smaller room, add coziness, define certain spaces and light up a work area. When it comes to choosing that special lighting for your home, the options are endless.
Whether you’re looking to light up your living room, dining room, bedroom, kitchen or more, we can help you decide on lighting that is both stylish and functional, and of course, shows off your new furniture. There are three basic types of lighting options:
Ambient lighting, most often this is a recessed ceiling light designed to replace daylight. Ambient lighting creates a bland, flat effect. Combined with other lighting, it will serve and accomplish all purposes.
Accent lighting: adds texture, depth, focus and shade near focal pieces and in corners, beautifully complements ambient lighting.
Task lighting: used to illuminate a work area. Task lighting provides a narrower stream of light that focuses exclusively on one area.
Take a look at the following lighting ideas for your home:
Living Room Lighting
Your living room is special. It’s the space in your home where everyone gathers to spend time together. Therefore, you’ll want to mix it up a little. Mixing and matching different types of lighting is essential for creating an inviting atmosphere. Overhead ambient lighting will brighten the entire space and for your living room, you’ll want it in two ways: recessed lighting across the ceiling for overall lighting and a transitional hanging pendant over the center of the room. When you want to add more warmth to your living room, table lamps and floor lamps work beautifully to add coziness and intimacy.
It’s important to get the lighting perfect for your dining room. Pendant lights, flush mounts, chandeliers and wall sconces are lovely and functional ideas for lighting up a dining room. However you do it, the most important thing is to focus your lighting around the dining room table. There will be times when you don’t want the room completely illuminated, so make sure to use dimmer lighting to set the mood.
Lighting tip: both ambient and task lighting in your dining room should be at 3,000-6,000 Lumens.
Kitchens aren’t just for cooking; if your home is like most others, your kitchen is also the space where everyone gathers to hang out and catch up on their day. Therefore, choosing lighting for your kitchen should be determined by the activities – whether you’re looking to illuminate a cooking area or you want to create an entertaining space for friends and family, choose your lighting accordingly.
It’s important to use three different types of lighting for your kitchen: recessed lights, pendant lights, and the must-have under-cabinet strip lights. Recessed lighting is best to illuminate the entire kitchen, hanging pendant lights work well over an island or kitchen table, and under cabinet lighting is perfect for counter tasks.
Lighting tip: kitchen ambient lighting should be 5,000-10,000 Lumens; task lighting around the counters, sink and stove should be a minimum of 450 Lumens.
You want your bedroom to be a warm and cozy space. Before you choose bedroom lighting, you will want to have a furniture placement plan. The key to creating the perfect lighting for your bedroom is flexibility. The capacity to control light levels is important – if one person wants to sleep and another wants to read, you want to have those options.
Lighting tip: bedroom ambient lighting should be 1,500-3,000 Lumens, while task lighting should be a minimum of 400 Lumens.
Floor and Table Lamps: Floor and table lamps are versatile and can be used anywhere in your home. They come in a wide variety of styles, colors, lengths and are perfect options to enhance the appeal of any room’s décor. Popular lamp finishes include antique bronze, oil-rubbed bronze, brushed nickel and satin nickel. If you’re planning on using your new lamp as accent lighting, go for more decorative or extravagance to add style and elegance to your space. You can mix and match, too, with different bases, finishes, lamp shades and even the light bulbs you choose.
Dimmer Lighting: The lighting in your home is something you use every single day. As such, it should be adaptable for its intended use – using lighting dimmer controls allows you to set the mood in any room. Whether for entertainment purposes, reading, area nightlights or more, dimmers provide economical, safe and comfortable home environments.
Warm and Cool Lighting: Warm lighting is a natural, calming light that has a reddish tone to the eye, while cool lighting is brighter and looks bluer to the eye. The perfect time to use warm lighting is when you need to relax, wind down from the day and before you go to bed. The time to choose cool lighting is when we need a little energy and alertness – perfect for focus, performing tasks – best during the morning and afternoon.
Choosing Light Bulbs: The two most popular light bulb options are Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFLs) and Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs). The major difference between the two is how much energy it takes to use them over time. CFLs use about 70 percent less energy than LEDs and last years longer; they cost about a dollar more per light bulb. Two drawbacks to CFLs: they take a while to warm up and reach full illumination; they contain trace amounts of mercury – harmful to your health and the environment. So, don’t break them and don’t throw away in your home trash bin – recycle them.
The right lighting is essential for every room in your home. When choosing lighting, look for unique fixtures that will draw attention to your new furniture, a piece of art that you love, or around a work area. Once your lighting is complete, all you’ll need to do is flip the switch.

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.
