Suit Yourself with Modern Furniture from B&B Italia

Modern living room furniture from BB Italia 07


When you think about contemporary furniture, what do you think of? Odd-shaped, low-slung chairs that are a challenge to get into or out of? Objects that look like loveseats or couches — or then, again, maybe not? Take heart. Some modern furniture was, indeed, made that way in the recent past; today’s versions, however, take their cue from a more relaxed “vibe” and are made not only to look sleek, but to be absolutely livable. This selection of new living room furnishings from B&B Italia is a good example. From sofas to sectionals, to individual chairs and ottomans, there’s a wide range of individuality within “contemporary” style. Choose from charcoal-shaded couches and chairs, trimmed with elegant wood or white metal; loungers with open-weave backs whose complementary pillows have a lighter, airier feel or, of course, the classic neutral-toned sofa with chrome legs, almost a” trademark” of a modern interior.


In contrast to the expected neutrals of sand, gray, or cream, however, contemporary living room furniture has also broken out of a restricted palette. If you love purple and red, you can have them — together — on a sofa that “pops” against white walls. Relax on a deep blue sectional with light blue accents, and you’ll get a whole new appreciation for how “neutral” true color can be. True neutrals are even spiced up a bit, as with a sand or gray couch with sharp black trim. And don’t forget fabric and texture choices: fur-covered chairs are a popular fun accent…as well as the time-honored classic leather couch. So if your living room could use a bit of a facelift, consider some contemporary styles; you’ll be pleased with both the colors and the comfort available.
