If you prefer the sleek look, don't think you need to go with a rustic theme to add texture. Look for chunky woven fabrics for furniture and throw pillows, grass cloth or fabric wallcovering and natural-fiber carpets. Linen is a great choice too. Notice here how the upholstered table catches the light beautifully. Throw in some curves for inclusiveness and comfort. Curves are intuitively more inviting than rectilinear shapes. Rounded and soft, they tend to make us feel more protected and comforted. Creating a quasi circle, this pair of curved sofas fosters inclusivity. One side completes the other, so neither sofa feels cut off, making conversation more relaxed. Rest your arms. Arms that sit too low on sofas and chairs top my list of pet peeves. Before you buy furniture, sit down and test it to make sure that not only the arms, but also the height, depth and back angle are reasonably comfortable. The last thing you want is a sofa or chair that looks nice but that you avoid because it's uncomfortable.
Anchor floating furniture. If your sofa sits in the middle of your living room, anchor it with a sofa table so it doesn't look like a floating island. This will make the area seem more structured and substantial instead of looking as though something is missing. You can put a lamp or two on the table to create a reading spot where side tables won't fit. Plus, a sofa table draws your eye away from unsightly upholstery seams or lesser grades of leather on the back of your sofa. Ideally, the table should be a bit lower than the sofa back. Tables substantially higher tend to look a bit off and can knock the back of heads. Embrace nature's softer side. Slick and polished surfaces can feel hard, and their reflections have a tendency to cause eye fatigue — not exactly the hospitable feeling you want in your living room. Texture will add visual warmth and a richer, more tactile experience.
Aim for flexibility in lighting. Similar to dressing in multiple layers in winter, layering drapery panes over shades for maximum light adjustment in your living room will make it more pleasant to use at different times of the day and year, as well as for various activities. Drapes also visually soften the hard-edged appearance of Venetian blinds while adding style. This living room, for example, would look a bit bland without the light blue drapery. Wrap yourself up. A cozy throw is perhaps the easiest and cheapest living room addition. It'll get loads of use in the winter, and even in the summer by guests who may not fully appreciate your AC setting.
