Thoughts about this Mid-Century Living Room with Stunning Artwork

  1. The Artwork - I started with some of my own modern rustic inspired abstract canvas artwork. I picture it in a large size taking up most of the space above the sofa...really added great texture and color to the room.  To bring out the print's white tones and texture I paired it with this funky little textured white lamp...which would look great on either side of the sofa.

  2. The Sofa - As the main piece of furniture for this stunning modern and mid-century living room I chose this sleep brown sofa with light wooden legs.
  3. The Side Table - I then paired it with this fabulous round side table whose round shape and funky entwined circles at the base give the room a soft friendly feel.
  4. The Ottoman - I then added in a white fluffy ottoman for comfort and softness. I would buy several of them and have them around for lounging from anywhere in the room!
  5. The Accent Chair - To accent the wonderful rust red in the abstract canvas artwork I chose this red mid-century chair.
  6. Modern Wall Sculpture - Then I realized that the room still needed another splash of color so I chose one of my small modern wall sculptures. The orange-yellow color for of the piece really compliments the room's colors. If your space layout allows it I would place it above the red chair.
  7. The Rug - Lastly, I chose a beige jute rug (my favorite kind of rug) to bring out texture in the room and to give your bare feet a little massage any time you get up from the sofa.
