In fact, many American homeowners are furnishing their homes with modern living room furniture and turning their back on traditional home furniture designs. This does not necessarily mean that solid wood furniture in its natural color is out, since modern designs can make good use of the natural look of many types of wood, particularly American cherry and birch.
There is more to living room furniture than just the seating of course. You will also have some cabinets that you will use for display, holding drinks and glasses and also perhaps a bookcase, or secretaire. These items tend to be set against the walls, while your seating tends to be located within the general room space. It can be difficult to visualize your choice of seating without having the cabinets to complicate matters.
Thats the artistic view. Many prefer to describe the modern living room as being bright, airy and interesting with colorful accents. Not much difference, then! In fact, much American furniture design does tend to focus a great deal on natural wood finishes, while UK, Scandinavian (aka IKEA!) and continental European designs appear to be more adventurous, making good use of accent colors and experimental shapes. Is this really true? Many would believe it to be somewhat unfair to American furniture designers, because they tend to cater for what Americans are seeking. However, how do you know what you want if you are continually exposed to the same old stuff?
What is modern living room furniture, and what are the current standards of American furniture design? To answer the second question first, the answer is excellent, although with a tendency to the traditional. In order to answer the question completely, the concept of modern living room furniture must first be considered and agreed upon. Do we mean modern, contemporary, surrealistic or personal preference? In fact, does the term modern mean anything at all, other than having been designed in the current era? Many people use the term to refer to designs not conforming to current trends, so perhaps non-conformist is a better definition? Nope? Thought not!
