How to Design A Classic Living Room in the Modern Era

There is a difference between “old-fashioned” and “old” when it comes to furniture and design. These days you can have a beautifully designed living room that has a classic, nostalgic feel while still bringing some fresh energy into your home. A classic living room doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to fill it with worn out furniture and trinkets from centuries past!

Let’s talk about how to design a beautiful, classic living room that has a fresh and modern feel.

Leather-clad couch

Leather might be one of the most timeless materials out there! A black leather couch can be dressed up with pretty patterned pillows for a nice feminine touch or dark & solid pillows for a bit of masculinity. Leather couches are perfect for homes with children because they’re much easier to clean than fabric couches.

Electric fireplace

Electric fireplaces are a perfect way to bring some warmth and coziness to your living room. These days, many homes are built without fireplaces, and most apartment buildings don’t allow them. An electric fireplace is a way around all ofthe rules because there’s no flame!

Is there anything more classic than curling up near a fire in your home at the end of a long day?

Cupboards & cabinets

Many people have an issue with the amount of storage in their home – or lack thereof. Jelly cupboards are absolutely timeless, versatile, and hide your items out of site. If needed, a jelly cupboard can double as a TV stand or display stand for family photos and important nick knacks.

 Here are some ideas for your class living room jelly cupboard:

  • Storage for all of your arts and crafts
  • Extra bedding, blankets, towels, and pillows
  • Game cupboard
  • Extra storage for books and movies
  • Season decoration storage
  • Sporting goods
  • Hunting essentials
  • & more!

Hall seat

This classic piece of furniture ties right in with the previous one. Entryways tend to end up as the place where everyone tosses their shoes, coats, and keys without a care! Solid wood hall seats are as functional as they are beautiful. Now, everyone in the house can have a place to hang their coat, to put their shoes, and leave their keys.

The Baltimore Hall Seat has 9 storage compartments. Assigning one compartment to each member of the family is a great way to keep your home uncluttered. Guests will be so impressed when they walk in to see a great piece of furniture that simultaneously acts as a home organizer and a timeless statement piece.
