If you are not an interior designer but still want to put your own touch to your living room furniture here is a selection of living room ideas that can guide you to styling following some of the fundamental principles of interior design.

Starting with symmetry, which is to give a sense of balance to the whole space, the first idea is based around a pair of matching sofas, side tables and lamps on each side of the fireplace. It is a contemporary space and as this living room colors are in perfect combination, the soft cream of the seating sets and the dark tones of the tables and lamp: to add a vow effect in this very caliber assemble the 8 lights Murano glass chandelier in wrought iron with clear and colored Bohemian crystal. The bigger volume would be better placed low down, towards the coffee table to give luxurious elegance without it being too much for the eye.

If you have chosen your living room sets to be comfortable and neutral as in this candid space of white/grey sofas and ottoman and white walls, Mechini’s12 lights chandelier in wrought iron with colored Bohemian crystal and pearl banding can take center stage and inject your whites bringing them to life. To break the color scheme and give harmony, use bright living room accessories, such as warm red cushions and carpets or shade the light with the 3 lights + 3 leds floor gold lamp in wrought iron with colored Swarovski strass, Murano glass and lamp shade by Mechini.

If you have divided your dining room from your living room thanks to a sofa facing away from the dining room, a good way to give a distinctive look to each space would be to choose different accessories in terms of material, design and color. If you choose glass, try to match for example a round bubble centerpiece with a clear glass ovo-table and why not be daring with the round shape theme and centering the focal point of the living area with a 12 lights chandelier in wrought iron with clear Bohemian crystal, Swarovski strass and clear pearl banding from Mechini.

Dare to enjoy playing with shapes and bold tones of gold: mix the nature themed accessories, like a black gold leaves lamp and a ceramic stool. The luxury tone of Gold couldn’t be more appropriate for a ‘swing from the chandelier’ theme by singer Sia: living like tomorrow doesn’t exist? The baroque embossed golden leaves of the majestic frame from Mechini, just the sleek and chic tool you need for reflecting this vibe.

For seating groups in broader spaces you can use a large area rug to unify different colors, lines and even patterns. To better enhance your favorite nuances and continue with the symmetry with the double fume anniversary 13 lights chandelier in wrought iron with colored Swarovski strass, clear Bohemian crystal, porcelain, clear and colored pearl banding from Mechini. It will also become your focal point and if the rug isn’t large enough to contain all of the seating pieces, make sure that those farthest from the wall are solidly anchored on the “island”.
