Take a peek at some of the best living room designs we’ve put together in 2019, and see why we just can’t get enough of these spaces!
The Look: Perfectly California Casual
We’re starting with THE living room of the year. This Cali Casual living room was one of the most-popular Modsy designs of the year, and we can see why. It’s comfortable yet trendy, has a good neutral mix of patterns, textures, and materials, and it feels laid-back California but still family-friendly.
Why We Love It: It gets the California coastal blend of chic and chill totally right.Shop This Room
The Look: Desert Minimal
This Desert Minimal living room was the perfect introduction to the organic modernist style. With its cool and bright eclectic furnishings, earthy accents and materials, and edgy mid-century designs, this space definitely ranks high on our list of super-chic looks. If you want color without going too bold, this living room design is for you.

The Look: Contemporary & Formal
Speaking of organic modern style, this contemporary living room painted in Sherwin Williams’s 2020 color of the year, Naval, offers a slightly formal take on the look. It’s a space that plays with neutrals and dusty blues in an elegant way that we didn’t expect. The sophisticated furniture arrangement and unique pieces also all came together in a balanced way.
Why We Love It: Formal doesn’t always mean traditional and this proves it!Shop This Room
The Look: Lake House Modern
While we love the cozy cabin look to no end, this modern lake house living room offered an updated take on the style that instantly captivated us. It’s modern farmhouse style with a twist in all the right ways—organic patterns, natural materials, comfy foundation pieces. And it’s all done in a way that feels thoroughly modern.

If we’re talking over-the-top winner, this tropical boho living room takes the prize. It’s the ultimate haven for color and pattern lovers and there are textures galore.

The Look: Traditional With a Glam Edge
Chesterfield sofa in a citrine velvet? Yes, please! This living room with a tad of trad showed us how a major velvet piece can really dial up the glamour in a room. We (and many of our customers) were instant converts of the idea! And when it’s done in this palette of ochres, yellows, and mustards, it’s just perfection.
Why We Love It: Velvet used in a big way like we’ve never seen before—and we’re all about it!Shop This Room
The Look: Classic Farmhouse Elegance
Inspired by the Waco, Texas, lifestyle of Chip and Jo Gaines, this sophisticated living room is basically all our farmhouse style dreams come true. It’s classic rustic beauty. There are refined furniture and accents but the room still feels comfy and inviting, and the rustic elements (woven accents, natural woods, white upholstery) are beautifully balanced.

The Look: Mid-Century Boho
This curated living room captured a new way we saw the mid-century trend play out in 2019. It consisted of more earthy, organic, and boho elements all mixed in with the streamlined simplicity of mid-century. Looking at it again now, we’re certain this is a look that’s here to stay.

The Look: Dreamy Rustic Warmth
We can probably talk about rustic living rooms painted in cozy neutral and white all day long. But we’ll always come back to this warm and bright living room that has everything we can’t get enough of. There are plenty of natural materials (the baskets and rugs), cool eclectic and boho details (the trunk), and the perfect comfy furnishings (sofa and pillows). You can find us here all winter!

The Look: Laid-Back Industrial
Calling out city lofters! This industrial living room duplex design is urban apartment living goals.

The minimal leather sofa instantly cozies up the room while the tribal patterned rug, graphic pillows, and black-and-white art add a cool edge.
Why We Love It: Cool, colorful, and collected, this is what city living dreams are made of!
The Look: Global Chic
There’s no denying the simple-chic look of velvet in pastel shades. In this well-curated living room, a pink velvet sofa takes center stage amid a global mix of furniture and graphic contemporary art, which proves that big bursts of pastels can actually have gorgeous neutral appeal.
Why We Love It: The channeled back on the sofa is an elegant detail that truly shines here and we’re predicting it will be a huge trend in 2020!
The Look: High-Contrast Cool
As much as we love a welcoming city loft, we’re all about this edgy, high-contrast space that gets the modern black, white, and grey palette right.

When we looked to Nashville for style inspiration, we happily found interiors with lots of eclectic art and classic furnishings. It’s also a classic yet boho look that showcases traditional furniture in shapes and colors that are totally unexpected. All to say, it’s a bright and bold look that we still find endlessly inspiring.

One of our most-loved rooms from the year, this classic living room shows how layering texture on texture can make for a super bold and inviting look.

The Look: Monochrome Chic
One room, one color can go in any direction, really. But this glamorous monochrome living room in shades of saturated green is far from one-note.

The Look: Curated Modern Farmhouse
The bright and curated modern farmhouse look was one of our top styles of 2019, and it’s obvious why. The look mixes all the best trends together in one room, from layers of natural textures to a mix of industrial and mid-century furniture to clean lines and cozy neutrals. This light-filled modern farmhouse living room sums it all up beautifully.
