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 living room furniture includes  a Williams-Sonoma floor lamp  and a custom ottoman made by Prestige Furniture and upholstered in Romo fabric. The residents doubled the number of windows in the dimly lit house.
A fireplace and central heating keeps the open space warm and inviting.
A vintage 1950s credenza discovered in Paris supports three works by Aumas and two Sol LeWitt–inspired cubes used in one of his window displays. The daybed is an eBay purchase reupholstered in fabric from Kvadrat and the dark paint is from Dulux Valentine. Aumas found the photographer’s lamp at a Brussels flea market.
The living room has a close-up street view and abundant natural light. The sofa is Mags from Hay Studio, the table is an old Fritz Hansen base with a new top, and the Arne Jacobsen chair is also a refurbished vintage piece.
She replaced the existing windows with custom JVK Vinduer designs, but could not alter the shape or size of the apertures. A VP Globe lamp by Verner Panton hangs from a corner of the living room, illuminating an RAR rocker by Charles and Ray Eames for Vitra.

The residents removed vestiges of bad renovations from the past. “The 11-foot ceiling had been lowered in some rooms, which was a popular thing to do in Sweden in the 1970s in order to save energy,” Martin explains. “Some of the stucco had been destroyed, so we re-created both ceilings and windows.” The restored floors are original; the residents also removed and replaced all the electrical outlets, switches, and door handles.
The couple worked on the interiors with project architect Maria Danos. In the living room, an Arco lamp by Flos arches over a Jean-Marie Massaud for Poltrona Frau sofa, which joins an Antonio Citterio for B&B Italia coffee table, a Patricia Urquiola rug, and three-legged stools by Chris Connell.

Kirsty’s favorite space in the house is the living room, where she and her girlfriends curl up on the sectional sofa to gossip over a glass of wine.
The main floor is arranged as one long, contiguous space, with a living area and balcony at the front end. An Aulia coffee table by Henk Vos, a pair of red Eames molded plywood chairs, and a Pelican chair by Finn Juhl center the space.

Multi-Function Space: The sitting area sofa converts into a fold-down bed when guests arrive, and the round dining table is perfect for a meal as well as for hosting business meetings. The custom coffee table is topped with a live-edge slab of northwest fir, and has a cool geometric metal base, with casters for easy moving when the bed needs to fold down.

In the living room, Caspar educates his young son Roemer about the finer points of modern design. The red leather Gigi is van den Berg’s racy yet refined swivel armchair. Looking at this chair, it comes as no surprise that the designer drives a Porsche. “It’s from the late ’90s, but it’s already a classic,” says Caspar. “I just love the versatility of this one—you can sit forwards or sideways in it.” Van den Berg also designed the stainless-steel coffee table. The purple sofa was designed by Rodolfo Dordoni, and the Glo-Ball lamp is by Jasper Morrison.
The interiors frame selective views of the existing rock walls, and contrast them with light finishes of white walls and wood furniture and shelving.
