Classic modern designs using materials like stainless steel and furniture that has geometric designs are quite popular. One of the greatest advantages of this sort of interiors is that it gives a feeling of lightness and space. The use of muted colors further gives a touch of class to the overall effect. There is also an added advantage that such furniture and furnishings are easier to clean and maintain, thus largely reducing the problems for the housewife.
The use of traditional materials like bamboo and rattan can also make the central theme for designing the interior of a living room. Once you decide on using such a material, the other decorating and furnishing also seems to be automatically decided. The whole idea is one of following nature and the colors of the furnishing and the walls can follow this general trend. Maintaining this sort of furniture is however slightly problematic, as the surfaces can collect dust and dirt and also create conditions for insects to flourish.
Choosing furniture. If you want to be able to carefully select each piece of furniture it’s probably best to choose items individually that compliment each other. You may find package deals restrictive and they may only have part of what you want. In this case, make sure you have the colours you want to have in mind and make sure the different pieces work well together. Taking small samples of lounge fabric with you when buying the other room furniture is a good idea to help you match things together.
