Combining the right elements such as the ones listed into your space can assist in creating complete balance and harmony for your living room!


Is there something missing from your living room design? The problem could be a lack of visual interest. When designing a living room space, it is essential to provide visual interest to the design, and a great way to add to that wow factor is through interesting wall art! Pieces such as paintings, clocks, or statement wall art can quickly add that visual interest that is missing from your living room design! Check out a few of our favorite pieces to make that visual interest come to life in your living room!


If something still seems off about your living room, not enough seating could be the issue at hand. This can especially be a problem when entertaining, or gathering around with family to watch a movie or spend some quality time together. Adding an accent chair doesn't only create more room for seating seating to the space, but can make a statement as well. Get creative with your accent chair choices! Well, because, who doesn't love a little drama? We have provided a few of our favorite statement accent chairs below to inspire some essential seating for this living room design!
