Living Room Sectional Metal Counters Design Photos And Ideas

A palette of white-on-white textures and materials defines the living room. Venlet is joined by Lippens and their daughter, Nylah-Noy, on the Bendy Bay sectional—a modular, undulating fiberglass frame topped with leather cushions that he produced for Viteo in 2007. Cast-iron columns original to the structure, lacquered IKEA cabinets, and a custom stainless-steel countertop lined with a variant of Venlet’s Burdekin barstools make up the galley-style kitchen.

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.
