Moving away from the simple square and rectangles, it seems it is the circular and elliptical coffee table that is the more popular option in contemporary homes. This holds true in the case of the black coffee table as well with this trendy choice bringing in both visual and geometric contrast to a space dominated by neutral colors and straight lines. The hexagonal coffee table in black is another chic option while those really willing to experiment can bring home a masterpiece that is both abstract and sculptural in its silhouette. Beyond the form, it is the curated finish of the coffee table that gives it its contemporary appeal.
Reclaimed barn wood or old planks of wood from the attic given a new lease of life might not always fit in seamlessly with the aesthetics of a contemporary living rom. If you are looking for a finish that is far more urbane and classy, the accent walls in redwood, cedar or other locally sourced woods make a good option. The idea here is to cut back of excesses and to keep the visual appeal of the wooden accent wall minimal even while allowing the natural grace of wood to shine through. The more neutral the living room is, greater will be the impact of this woodsy composition.
Unless you have been living under a rock for the last two years, you would be no stranger to the geometric décor trend. Geo décor has found its way into every room of the house with homeowners replacing traditional round mirrors with those featuring hexagonal frames, the simple lighting fixture with wiry, geometric pendants and the common square or rectangular coffee table with something a lot quirkier. In a living room dominated by simple, straight lines and plenty of monotony, a hexagonal coffee table or one with an abstract, polygon outline can make a huge difference indeed.
Whether you wish to combine the black coffee table with another smaller side table or are thinking of ways in which to decorate it, it is important to find hues that blend in beautifully with black. Those searching for the ‘wow factor‘ can opt for bolder choices like orange and red, giving the coffee table a vibrant and spunky look. Metallics also combine well with black while accessories in white accentuate the black and white color scheme of your living room. It is all about what works best with the specific style and ambiance set in your own living space.
Compared to its fairer nephew, the black sofa seems much more popular in modern homes and it fits in well with styles ranging from minimal to masculine and industrial. It is generally the black leather couch that heads the list here with tufted sectionals coming in close behind. Simple and stylish, a couch in black or darker shades of gray makes an even bigger impact when the backdrop is kept as neutral and unassuming as possible.
