3 Ways to Maximize Your Small Living Room Design

3 Ways to Maximize Your Small Living Room Design

Small spaces require big thinking. To make a compact space work, while being comfortable and livable, homeowners and tenants have to get creative in how to use their limited space. Greenington furniture is often a favorite of those living in small spaces due to its sleek lines and highly functional design. We are often asked about how to make the best from a small area – here are three ways to maximize your space: 1. Use Multi-functional Pieces Find furniture that can serve multiple purposes at the same time – like a sideboard that can be both an entertainment stand and hold extra dishes for entertaining. Our Currant Sideboard is a great example of a multi-use piece. 2. Open Space Design Furniture While including pieces such as bookcases, find ones with open designs that provide the illusion of space while offering vertical solutions to storage and display. The open design of our Studio Line is a great example. 3. Make Use of Moveables Easily moved items can provide design and living flexibility for small spaces. A small side table can be a fixture at the end of a couch or become a small serving unit when company is over. Beautiful and flexible, our Rosemary Side Table is a great example of pieces that work for small spaces. There are many ways to bring a small living room to life with design and arrangement. Having pieces that provide both beauty and flexibility is another great way to maximize how you live...

Trend Watch: Modern Living Room Furniture

It seems “modern” is the talk of the town everywhere we turn in the furniture world these days. Sleek lines, simple textures, natural materials, and an overall clean and timeless look is sweeping show rooms and living rooms across the country. Here are the modern living room design trends we are seeing celebrated by top designers and industry professionals to consider for your own home: 1. Natural, organic materials – an emphasis on the relationship between people and the environment is re-emerging in furniture and home design. From fabrics to hard materials, nature knows best. 2. Less is more – inspired by the Marie Kondo movement, sparser living spaces free of clutter (both in style and objects) are being more sought after. 3. Mixed media – combining materials (like metal and wood) and textures make for a more dynamic look. 4. Statement coffee tables – creating a focal point for conversation and a conversation starter all in one. 5. Sustainability – living spaces that reflect personal values and come from responsible sources is no longer a fad, but an expectation. Regardless of personal style, these are living room style trends from the modern aesthetic that can work with every home.
