Formal Living Room

not so trad

Imagine the homey feeling of grandma’s living room, updated for the digital age. Here’s how we tweaked tradition in a classic-meets-modern living room.

Shop this room:

Try this: START WITH A TRANSITIONAL SOFA

This elegant sofa is a far cry from grandma’s floral chintz couch but, at the same time, it feels cozier than cutting edge. Transitional pieces – a little bit classic, a little bit modern – are a great way to bridge different design eras in your room.

Design tip: LOOK FOR PERIOD DETAILS

These tub chairs have a sophisticated early 20th Century look. Nailhead rivets provide an interesting counterpoint to the luxe chenille upholstery. Pair two next to one another to create an informal conversation nook.

Buying Tip: THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX

Try seeing old furniture in a new light: This dresser moved from bedroom to hallway. Get more value from your investments by reframing existing pieces in your home and when shopping, by considering the different ways a piece may be used over time.

Styling Idea: LAYER FOR VISUAL IMPACT

Displaying your fave finds is a sure-fire way to add personality to your living space. Layering wall art, tabletop accessories and a mirror – with a bit of overlap – creates a casual and unpretentious living room mood. Switch up your displays whenever you want an easy update.
