Traditional American furniture design is characterized by solid wood in natural shades, with upholstery, furnishings and décor to match. Modern living room furniture tends to be associated with clean lines, whites and bright colors put together to offer a sensation of space with colorful accents intruding as focal points.
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. Still, when you think on it deeper, this is not modern living room furniture design we are discussing here, but home décor - and a form of home décor that many believe went out in the 1960s.
Tables are also essential pieces of living room furniture. Coffee and cocktail tables tend to be placed in from of sofas while end tables sit at either side of chairs or sofas. Accent pieces can be set against walls or in the general living space. It has now become all but impossible to visualize in your minds eye what your room will look like with all this furniture.
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!
