The style of the 70’s is returning to fashion and not only in cinema, clothing or music but also in interior design. The atmosphere of the past, the revolutionary feeling and the bright colors are slowly returning to the houses and upsetting the too sober and modern style that until now has been the master.

In the 70’s the hippie folk style invaded the living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens and bedrooms, transforming them from bon ton and representative environments to kaleidoscopic and colourful universes. This is how the open spaces rich in wooden furniture, natural fabrics and objects with abstract shapes were created.

But now let’s get on with the advice to create an environment inspired by the 70’s.

Colourful Living room:

To create a 70s style in your living room, the key word is “mix colors”! Play, fill and exaggerate with colour and especially with warm colours; create strong contrasts between the sofa, the armchairs, the curtains and the cushions without being afraid of making a mistake. The important thing is to avoid monotony and banality!

Wooden Furniture:

In the typical 70’s house, one of the mainstays was represented by wood: a material that emits warmness and adapts to any environment and furniture. It can be used on tables, coffee tables, chairs, walls and floors, in short, almost anywhere, but be very careful not to turn the house into a mountain hut!

A bit of Hippie Style:

Adding a bit of hippie style is always a winning move to create a typical 70’s style environment giving rise, therefore, to an easy and comfy aesthetic directly linked to Indian and psychedelic culture. Totems, fringes, dazzling images and blinding colours…

The White Colour:

Despite the wide use of bright colors, in the 70s white was widely used. White, in fact, at that time became very fashionable because it represented the future; this fashion was born after the American landing on the Moon in 1969 and became the backdrop for many scenes of successful films: the first episode of Star Wars in 1977, the Milky Bar in Mechanical Orange in 1971, the Los Angeles interiors isolated in Zabriskie Point by Michelangelo Antonioni in 1970.

Disco Atmosphere:

Psychedelic Wallpapers:

If you want to create a 70’s decoration you can’t avoid to insert the wallpaper! Crazy and bright colours, psychedelic and redundant designs and pure energy. You don’t need to cover all the walls you have available, just choose one to give a touch of pure color to the environment!

Eight coffee tables to match with a fabric sofa

lem modular miniforms

Eight coffee tables to match with a fabric sofa. How to create the perfect match with the most classic of upholstered items: the fabric sofa.

lem miniforms

 

Couple of honor in the living room, sofa and coffee table are the heart of the conversation area, to be organized according to the size of the room should also be composed stylistically in the best way. And if one of the two elements is the (more or less) classic fabric sofa, for the second element the choices can be different. From the most classic and traditional solutions to the most original and less conventional, there are different interpretations that can be given to this pair, especially in the presence of an important element such as a fabric padding. To better understand how to orient yourself here are eight coffee tables ideas to match with a fabric sofa.

Unconventional

What coffee table to combine with a fabric sofa/armchair with a modern and minimalist design to get out of the obvious? If you are faced with a model of this kind, with standard dimensions, one of the most interesting solutions leads to the choice of a central table a bit ‘unconventional’. For example, an upside-down cone shaped, brightly coloured coffee table could be the perfect idea to lighten the extremely “common” lines of the sofa.
Alternatively, another option could be to focus on a table with a different top than the usual models. In this conversation corner, the unconventional choice of a ceramic top was chosen. A very elegant and discreet material, both in terms of colour and material, goes very well with the sofa and is perfect for creating an interesting contrast between the two elements.

Traditional with a touch of innovation

Do you have a modular sofa made of a fairly large fabric and would you like to “rejuvenate” it a little? For the choice of the coffee table it is better to focus on a single element, simple but of design, minimalist but with a pleasant visual impact as in the picture. Here the coffee table has been positioned to the side of the sofa so as to create a new dialogue with the sofa, an ideal solution to give new life to the traditional upholstered furniture.

Essential lines with a hint of decoration

If the sofa is large, dark and with a minimalist design, in the choice of the accompanying table you could focus on a model that is also essential and large (at least 1\3 of the sofa) preferably with a glass top. The additional idea, to break the rigour of the two elements, could be the choice of a neutral-coloured rug to be placed right under the table. If you then aim, as in this solution, the mix will certainly be winning.

For those who love the industrial style

In styles like the beloved industrial, the sofa is often the heart of the entire living room. In this case, however, what revolves around the upholstered sofa must be in line with the style chosen. The ideal coffee table should therefore be central and better if a model with a metal structure and wooden top of a size proportionate to the sofa. A simple solution, easy to replicate and certainly fascinating.

An unconventional couple

What if it wasn’t the classic furnishing accessory but a pouf, always in fabric and coordinated with the sofa? An idea to consider if you have a large space and if you are used to receiving many friends, and therefore you need a few more seats. To be chosen not too small and coordinated with the sofa can be placed in the center of the living room or laterally.

Vintage and wood to make no mistake

A vintage-style sofa is always an interesting piece. Small and not too large, like the one in the photo, it offers great freedom of composition and allows you to play freely with the furnishing accessories around it. With models of this type for the coffee table you can choose either something in style or something contemporary that creates a link between past and future. In both cases it is better to opt for a piece that is not too large, it would ruin the line of the upholstered sofa.

An explosion of colours

A modern sofa does not only mean neutral colours or dark shades, more and more often we find fabric sofas in a wide variety of colours. In these cases, the most prudent solution is to choose a table that is neutral from both a stylistic and a chromatic point of view. For experienced interior designers, two strong, contrasting colours can still work very well.

XL Compositions

The large sofas equipped with dormeuse and/or chaise longue often occupy the entire part of the living room destined for the conversation area. When choosing a coffee table, in this case you can either, as in this solution, decide to focus on a single center of gravity element of the sofa with sustained dimensions, or orient yourself on several “serving” elements to be placed at the sides of the sofa. Stylistically, if you are dealing with a model with a classic finish, but with a contemporary design, the advice is to choose a precious material (such as marble, for example), which will give the whole the importance it deserves.

The Guide for a Perfect Living Room

The Guide for a Perfect Living Room. How to choose the right furniture and how to arrange them to better furnish the space.

 

living room decor ideas

 

The living room represents the heart of the house, indeed, it is the image. It is the environment in which we spend the most time, in which we meet with friends and relatives, where we sit down for moments of relaxation in front of the TV or with a good book. Yet, even if we take it for granted that there are furnishings to be included, it is not at all easy to create the room we have in mind. In our living room there will be sofas and armchairs, cupboards, shelves, tables and paintings, but how do we advance in the choice of furniture and how do we distribute them in the environment to get a good result? What follows is a small, well thought-out guide for a perfect living room.

 

The Sofa:

 

living room sofa ideas

The sofa is the essential element of any living room. Normally it is the first thing you buy and it is the key element for the choice of the rest of the furniture. However, before you can even buy your beloved model, you need to talk about measures here. Let’s start by saying that usually a single sofa is enough and that it will have to fit into a room along with other furniture. The sofa must be in proportion to the size of the room and oversized models must be avoided even when space is at a premium. In these cases it is preferable to opt for two smaller sofas, with two or two and a half seats: they will better define the relaxation area and will be more practical and functional.

 

Recommended Sofas:

 

Lem Sofa

The new base fits on the existing one and, consequently, can be managed as “after sales” option.
It’s possible to choose the structure in beech wood or in aniline wood.

Armchairs, chairs and stools:

 

 

living room armchairs ideas

Choosing a comfortable but not bulky sofa allows you to complete the conversation area and TV with other chairs, such as armchairs or chairs, that furnish and come in handy when you receive guests. If the space is not sufficient to accommodate one or two armchairs of the same model as the sofa, you can opt for armchairs or chairs recovered from family furniture that will give the environment warmth and personality. Although not suitable for long breaks of relaxation, inserting one or more stools is the clever and practical idea to have, in a small space, small countertops for magazines or remote controls, and at the same time additional seats.

The Coffee Table:

 

living room ideas

Another essential element of the living room is the coffee table. This useful table becomes an opportunity to characterize the space and give strength and originality to the room: just observe a few rules. Choose an original model, which is in agreement with the rest of the furniture or that breaks with it; always opt for a low model: it will not “fall out” with the sofa and will be more practical to rest on books, vases and anything else. Or, when you have enough space, we can replace the classic front table with a comfortable pouf. It will act as a top and an extra seat, creating an elegant and modern aesthetic solution.

The Rug:

 

living room rugs ideas

It may sound strange, but furnishing your living room starting from the carpet can help us to get on the right track right away. The carpet, in fact, delimits the space within and around which the seats and accessory furnishings will be placed, creating a mesh within which it will be easier to organize all the elements. In addition, the carpets can act as a focal point when in counterpoint to the style of other furnishings. Avoid carpets that are small in relation to the proportions of the relaxation area; a carpet that is large enough will give importance to the entire living room.
