In this photo we see that it is possible to design and furnish a small living room to make it a warm and friendly space. The carpentry work here has completely transformed the look of this studio. Birch plywood has been used to make pullout beds, cabinets and cupboards in a very effective manner. The use of light colours helps to enlarge the space and make it brighter.

Multifunctional furniture

To furnish a small living room and save every bit of space, try using hybrid, multifunctional furniture like the piece we see here. This side table, made of polished copper and solid oak, also contains a lamp and is perfect for a small living room. The design is rooted in modernity, yet it has a old world charm due to the copper bell, which was inspired by old candle extinguishers.

Small studio

How to organize space in a 28m² studio? Here we see one stylish solution. To allow considerable light, the architect decided to connect the living spaces with a smoky window between the bedroom and the lounge. How did she manage to make the space seem larger? By working with similar materials and simple furniture, she created a harmonious, open space.

This small seating area is located in a renovated apartment of 37m². As we can see in the photo, the designers cleverly added a large amount of storage space by installing high cabinets along the wall. The translucent cupboard doors keep the space full of light while masking the clutter behind.

By playing with the details, the colours and the use of light, the designer here offers a modern, fresh and bright living room. The bold fuchsia colour palate used for the carpet, tables and chair create a harmonious whole. The wooden floor and trunk affixed to the wall bring warmth into the room. In addition, the abundance of green plants adds life and cheerfulness, qualities that are essential to each and every living room.
