It is a great idea to do up your living room with a contemporary décor. It will go a long way and will merge with almost all sorts of decorative stuff that you keep gathering throughout the year.
When you are choosing furniture for your modern living room, the sofa set or the sitting arrangement needs major attention. You could opt for a leather sofa. Also, recliners and bean bags can be added to create more sitting space. Alternatively, you can also choose bamboo chairs. They have the modern yet natural look. Make sure to put loads of brightly colored cushions to make these chairs comfortable and also add color to the room.
A centre table is a must. You can choose the wooden ones with a glass top to match your sofa set. Or else, go for the ones that have a round or rectangular top set up on a tree root. In addition to these, you can also set up a small corner table to keep photo frames, phone or a lamp shade. Choose a TV cabinet that can hold your DVD player, music system etc.
