ur new open-plan living room brings together shades of grey and timber; this is perfect for a lived-in feel, true to our beloved industrial style. However, the overall aesthetics are given a more contemporary and sophisticated twist: a spotlight floor lamp that comes straight from a photographic set, a tray built between sofa and footstool, a handmade coffee table with a sculptural silhouette, and a streamlined bookshelf, extremely on trend with its mix of timber and the colour anthracite. What’s more, the overall vibe is welcoming and bright; this is just what you need to add a modern twist to your living room.

Three pieces one style

Built-in tray.

Part coffee table, part tray and part magazine rack, this piece is a triple threat: elegant, extraordinary and functional.

Spotlight floor lamp.

Just like those found in an old photographic studio. Go for vintage; this metal lamp is a flea-market find.

Wooden coffee table.

This dramatic piece is made from different blocks, however you can achieve the same effect with a piece that looks handmade or second-hand.
