The modern living room is one of the busiest spots in the house. It is where family and friends alike gather to share stories, watch movies, read, and unwind. As you'll find in the projects below, there are endless ways to configure a fresh living space with modern options for chairs and sofas, sectionals, end and coffee tables, bookcases, benches, and more. Innovative fireplaces add a touch of warmth.

The West Village renovation was the second project Lubrano completed for her client. "She is a collector of contemporary art and has minimalist design sensibilities, so she was not necessarily interested in reiterating typical attitudes of how a historic townhouse should present itself," Lubrano says.

The front door entry, on the opposite side of the home also incorporates a La Cantina pocket door allowing the ocean breeze to blow straight through the house.
