In fact, many American homeowners are furnishing their homes with modern living room furniture and turning their back on traditional home furniture designs. This does not necessarily mean that solid wood furniture in its natural color is out, since modern designs can make good use of the natural look of many types of wood, particularly American cherry and birch.
However, if the term ‘modern’ is associated with pure white furniture on bright red or blue carpeting, or brightly colored pieces sitting on pale-colored floors, then not too many American designers tend to go for that type of contrast. Still, when you think on it deeper, this is not ‘modern living room furniture’ design we are discussing here, but ‘home décor’ – and a form of home décor that many believe went out in the 1960s.
So perhaps American furniture designers are correct, although their ‘modern’ upholstered pieces appear to be traditional designs with brightly colored or white upholstery. So what is needed? One answer is simple and obvious – use American ingenuity. Americans are known for their imagination, and there are many American furniture companies that allow you to design your own furniture.
You design it, and they will make it. You know what? Ordinary American people are doing a great job and are coming up with some fabulous modern living room furniture designs. Leave American furniture design to the ordinary American, and the results can be awesome – so much so that some of these furniture manufacturers have added their clients’ designs to their regular range! If you have some good designs for modern living room furniture for your own home, then you can do the same!
