Nothing makes a room feel cozier than a fireplace. Whether it’s modern, traditional, farmhouse or something altogether different, a living room that has a fireplace just feels more welcoming than one that doesn’t. A fireplace doesn’t have to stand out to have an impact. The modern fireplace in this neutral living room by Elms Interior Design blends into its surroundings due in large part to the fact that there’s no mantel. The box fits snugly into the stone feature wall without calling attention to itself.
During the freezing winter months, there’s nothing quite like the sound, the smell, and the warmth of a crackling fireplace. Once a necessity for survival, a fireplace is now a decorative element that can add major style (and extra heat) to a living room. A fireplace provides an instant focal point and frequently gives a space symmetry, as well as more space for displaying art and collections. As these rooms from the archives prove, there’s a fireplace to suit any decor, from ones with rustic stone surrounds to those with ornate mantels.
The modern living room is one of the busiest spots in the house. It is where family and friends alike gather to share stories, watch movies, read, and unwind. As you’ll find in the projects below, there are endless ways to configure a fresh living space with modern options for chairs and sofas, sectionals, end and coffee tables, bookcases, benches, and more. Innovative fireplaces add a touch of warmth.
