The materials used in rugs are natural and synthetic fibers. Nylon is a common synthetic fiber and is simple to take care of. Natural fibers are eco-friendly and they cost more. However, they will last longer. You will find natural fibers in the form of wool, cotton and other eco-friendly materials.
Decorative accessories are another important piece in pulling your contemporary look together. Concentrate on getting wall art and pillows that match your contemporary design style. For accent pieces you want the lines to be clean and avoid a lot of clutter. Be certain to add in loads of plain bowls with fruit as well as simple linear floral arrangements and you might even try some black and white photography to get a professional look for your living room. Additional touches such as vintage art deco accessories can help setup your room with a polished decorative appeal, but don't go overboard because with the contemporary look less is better.
Choose a focal point. Choosing a focal point in your living room space is important as you want to accentuate the best features of the room. A window is a great feature in any living room space both for the view it may have and also the light that it lets in. If this is your focal point, arrange the furniture near by and make sure both you and your guests can enjoy the view/sunlight. Other focal points in the room include an entertainment unit or a fireplace. These areas in the room should be accentuated as well.
