Essential Elements for a Contemporary Living Room

Whether you are moving into a new house or you are looking to redecorate your current home, the living room is the center of activity and should be decorated as such. You can spruce up your old or outdated décor by shopping at a consignment store for unique, contemporary furniture. Even if your decorating style is eclectic or retro, there are still a few elements you’ll need for a contemporary look. Keep reading to learn what the essential elements are for a contemporary living room.

Comfortable Seating

In the past, the living room was a more formal area used mostly for entertaining guests or on special occasions. That has changed in today’s modern times, however, and living rooms are becoming more and more usable and welcoming. In order to make your living room inviting, you’ll need to find comfortable seating for you, your family, and your guests. Start with a larger piece of furniture such as a couch or sofa, and create a plan around that. You can add a loveseat if you have space, or a few side chairs and ottomans for a versatile and movable seating arrangement.


If you’re planning on using your living room a fair amount, it’s a good idea to have storage set up to avoid excessive clutter. Check at your local consignment store for a coffee table with drawers where you can store your remotes, or look for a bookshelf that can hold your favorite novels as well as a few knick-knacks. When everything has a designated place, you can easily clean up your space when you have a surprise guest come over.


Your living room won’t be of much use to you if you have to squint to see the book you’re reading. Even if you have overhead lighting, think about acquiring a few lamps on consignment to give the room a warm, cozy glow.
