This story will further be highlighted by the use of natural materials such as wood and stone, as well as metal and glass. The glass is painted, and in combination with the full surfaces it is often used to reinterpret some of the classic styles.

The metallic effects in the color of copper, gold or aluminum are extremely trendy. You can use them in the details of furniture, but also in decorative items of large dimensions.

Contrasts are trendy elements designed to create a strong identity for the space. They can be expressed through colors, materials or spaces, depending on how much you want to emphasize.

Softness and suppleness are an integral part of the trendy living room. This is certainly achieved with comfortable and ergonomic sitting sets, but also visually and with armchairs soft to the touch.

Softness will also be achieved with fine carpets that should be of abstract, ethnic or geometric patterns, and curtains and decorations that follow the style of furniture or create contrast.

Simple furniture lines are enriched with a combination of different materials and lighting effects. Apart from the TV cabinet, the use of large wall shelves, enriched with lighting and unusual details is very trendy.

Lighting fixtures are voluminous and expressive, always in a retro style. They can be placed centrally or asymmetrically, depending on the situation, and the voluminosity is achieved by a composition of smaller connected elements.
