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.
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.
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.
Leather can be stained with paints and inks, whereas fabric coverings can be cleaned much easier than genuine leather. Leave the leather until the kids have grown up. If you have no children, then you can purchase sets comprising stylish glass tables along with a pair of leather-covered hardwood sofas. Many people like a smoked or even black glass central table with a pair of oak or glass side tables.
