So perhaps American furniture designers are correct, although their modern upholstered pieces appear to be traditional designs with brightly colored or white upholstery. So what is needed? One answer is simple and obvious - use American ingenuity. Americans are known for their imagination, and there are many American furniture companies that allow you to design your own furniture.
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.
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.
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?
