It can be a console, a wall art or a highlighting of a corner or probably just a light fixture. This focal point will help bind the whole living room together and also define its function. Generally fire-place, plasma unit or a console make good focal points. It is sometimes important to draw the attention to the farthest wall using an oversize piece of art or decorative mirror so that you have footsteps in that corner, else it will become one dull area of the living room. Fusion look can be achieved by combining various materials; while chrome steel black lacquered wood, leather will add the contemporary look; silk, carved wood, and wrought iron will bring the tradition in. It is very important to achieve a balance by not overdoing any one style. Accessories like cuddly cushions, candles, dim lights, and flowers will add warmth and coziness to the atmosphere. Add likes to your lighting rather than one high voltage ceiling lamp illuminating the entire room, use a combo of the floor, table, ceiling and wall lamp to make the space glow. A big rug made of plush wool or silk made with traditional weaving will make the room inviting and also set a sharp contrast with furniture.
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.
The living room is the area which is your first introduction to guests. Couch or sofa occupies maximum space in your living room. The most important would be positioning your furniture. The traditional rule is to align it parallel to the wall but you can make it your own rule and place it at angles to give it a new look. A mix of old and new, formal and casual, neutral and bold add a new spark to the living room beside making it inviting and beautiful. The easiest way to get fusion look will be to introduce sofa and armchairs in contemporary lines while draperies and wall highlighting in the traditional way. Use the neutral color palette for the furniture and allow the accessories and furnishings to become a focal point. It is important to have an anchor or a place for your eye to rest which gives it the main focus.
