If you’re feeling like your living room is stuck in 2014, it’s time for some fresh inspiration with a new look for the New Year.

At Lumens, we pride ourselves in always being able to give you the inspiration you need for a successful redesign. So take a look, see if you like anything and get started, because the beginning of the new year is the best time to get going on a fresh new look for your living space.
Check out our ideas for modern living room furniture changes below.
Carmichael Loft Sofa by Gus Modern
If you’re really looking for a style change, start with the anchor piece in every living room, the sofa. The Carmichael Loft Sofa by Gus Modern is a great piece that lends its sleek design and clean lines to any space, for a deliberate, contemporary chic. The piece has solid ash wood legs with a walnut finish, crisply tailored upholstery and a high, subtly angled back for a structured look. This modern living room sofa is available in three fabrics choices, Laurentian Citrine, Totem Storm and Urban Tweed Potash.
What Shoppers Are Saying About the Carmichael Loft Sofa:
We were looking for a sofa that was modern with a classic touch. When the Gus arrived we were a bit unsure, it seemed a little too severe. Then we added the fur and hemp pillows and viola! It looks great. We placed a small chesterfield in the room and a furry rug and we love it!
Drop Coffee Table by Skram
If you’re going with the sleek and structured look of the Carmichael Loft for your sofa, you have some room to be a bit edgy with your choice of coffee table. The Drop Coffee Table by A. Jacob Marks for Skram Furniture is a highly unique piece, a teardrop-shaped slab of Volakas marble held off center by a three-point steel frame.
It’s a thoroughly modern piece that instantly transforms a room with its elegant yet bold design.
Heart Cone Chair by Vitra
A well-chosen and distinctive accent chair can really add a great textural layer to a room. The Heart Cone Chair, designed by Verner Panton for Vitra, has a distinctive, exaggerated silhouette that serves as a contemporary interpretation of the classic wingback chair. First designed in 1959, this classic lounge chair adds personality to a living room without overwhelming the space. It’s also available in Black, Chocolate, Green, Matt Blue, Red, Rust and Truffle, but we like it in Golden Yellow as it complements the color of the Carmichael Loft Sofa and the organic curvature of the Drop Coffee Table.
Blow Up Table by Alessi
With such a bold color choice, you might want something visually light for your side table.
The Blow Up Table by Fernando and Humberto Campana for Alessi is a stunning, architectural piece with a stainless steel base and a clear glass top. This Italian table is stylish, playful and perfect for your living room.
I had a side table that was an eyesore, and wanted to replace it with something cool and timeless. The Blow Up Table is perfect for this. It brings a surprise element into an otherwise well structured room, and looks very “light” and “transparent”. This means, it doesn’t take much “visual” space, making it ideal for small to medium sized spaces. It comes well packed; all you have to do is unpack, and put the glass on top of the base. It couldn’t be easier.
Breathing some fresh air into your living room isn’t too difficult, all you need is a few key pieces and you’ve got a totally new space. These items not really your style? Don’t worry, we have plenty of other living room furniture from which to choose.
