Sit Back and Relax in These Chic Living Room Designs

Gather in style and sophistication.
Living Room

Photographs by Coley Stevens


As the home’s centerpiece, the living room is a reflection of our desire to gather. Shared focal points, like the fireplace and television, and communal seating, cultivate togetherness. The room is an architectural expression of the household, and the shared identities of its residents. A place to share laughter, joy, and plenty of tasty recipes, the living room is used in more ways than you might think. Functioning as a cinema, a dining room, a sanctuary, and a party venue, it has few limitations. 

The living room is a versatile gathering space. Whether serene and minimalist, or quirky and eclectic, any style can offer the perfect space to congregate with loved ones.
