Small modern living room ideas: 9 contemporary looks

Small modern living room ideas and contemporary architecture can make a style statement while perfectly chiming with its environment. Success depends on using the right materials and opting for a sleek design that results in an effective blend of old and new within in a limited space. 

Less is more, so be careful not to over design, especially in a small living room. Bear in mind too that very modern designs can sometimes feel stark and clinical, so balance this by introducing warmth with plenty of texture, wood and layered lighting to add interest.
