However, if the term modern is associated with pure white furniture on bright red or blue carpeting, or brightly colored pieces sitting on pale-colored floors, then not too many American designers tend to go for that type of contrast.

Alternatively, if you prefer more color in your rooms, a gorgeous reproduction Sheraton settee in burgundy and cream would look fabulous in a sitting room decorated in an old English style, with deep red and ecru flocked wallpaper and a beautiful pure wool off-white carpet. You can also purchase separate arm chairs and sofas with this living room furniture from the Southwood Furniture Corporation.
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.

It is very easy to do this, particularly when you consider the wide range of living room furniture available today. Lets have a brief look at the range of furniture you can use in your lounge.
