The term is generally considered to refer to contrasts in shades rather than colors, so white and red rather than red and blue. Lines are simple, so hold the carving and leave the woodwork plain. Natural wood is fine, but you can paint it in contrasts, such as black and white or bright red and white if you prefer. Use highlighted accent pieces, and keep clear from deep buttoned upholstery with large puffy cushions. Your modern might be completely different to anybody elses. Now that is a modern concept, and your living room should be furnished and decorated just as you want it to be - not to conform to any acceptable style.American furniture design is as eclectic as those that design and make it - which is one reason for modern living room furniture being such as difficult term to define. It is what you want it to be!
You may decide on a color theme that could involve either matching shades or contrasting primary colors. Alternatively, you may prefer a combination of wood and leather: solid wood occasional and cocktail tables, and leather sofas and chairs, whether individual pieces or sectionals. Lets have a look at some options based on leather upholstery combine with solid American woods such as maple, oak and cherry.
Make sure you purchase solid furniture that isnt going to break or become unstable through hard use, and the fabrics you choose are sensible and easily cleaned - also easily repaired if you have young children or pets. Do not purchase cheap just because you can buy more - its better to have one well-made high quality sofa than two made of matchwood and plastic.
A lot depends on the size of your living room. If you are short of space then a sectional sofa is likely better, because you can then use a corner of the room to connect two longer pieces of sofa by means of a wedge. That is making the best use of the space available to you, and avoids cluttering up a small room with large pieces of furniture in the middle of the floor.
