Peculiarities of modern style in living room interiors

How does a modern living room look? The main idea of modern style is to free the space from furniture clutter whilst filling the interior with light, space and functionality.

Details in interior play merely on contrasts, yet, despite this, the area does not lose its uniqueness and charm, while many projects can definitely be called brave.

Quite often these are luxurious expensive interiors, chic and gleam which don’t hurt the eye.

A living room in modern style is the space of a modern man with taste who appreciates his time and spends it with comfort.
