Transformation: One Great Do-It-All Space

City dwellers living in confined quarters often face a common problem: the all purpose room. Living room, TV room, dining room and entryway all in one space. It needs to look good so it will make you happy, and so you can entertain without apologizing. But it also needs to be functional and comfortable for everyday living.

Click through this Modsy transformation of one urban couple’s all purpose room. We show them an option that includes a previously-lacking small dining area, and an another option that flip-flops the existing furniture orientation. Moving your furniture around is one thing, but seeing a whole new collection of furniture moved around – in your own space – is something else entirely!


What makes this Mod Visionary living room work

 Cool colors – on walls, sofa and rug – paired with fresh white accents are an ideal backdrop for the warm tones of the leather chair, pillows and wood elements. The patterned rug dresses up the room a bit, and along with the contrasting pillows and textured table lamp, it adds depth to the minimalist simplicity of the furniture, without being overpowering.

Alternate decor options

 This solid textured rug imbues the space with a brighter, more casual feel. A clean-lined navy armchair adds a balanced weight to the lightness of the other pieces. Simple wood pieces bring a warm, natural element to the space and their open bases prevent a feeling of heaviness often created with wood furniture.
