The global pandemic has forced us to rethink the way we use various spaces at home. The living room, in particular, is one of the busiest hubs. It’s no longer just a space for lounging and unwinding, but also potentially an area used for working, learning and exercising; or the spot where you're doing your Zoom calls.
Serving multiple key functions requires a mix of flexible furniture and design finesse. Segmenting an open-plan living room into different zones can also help create purpose without disrupting the flow between the connected spaces.
Below, we highlight some inspirational open-plan living areas to help maximise your interior spaces. With some clever decorating, the multifunctional area will definitely bring joy to you and your family.
1. A minimalist concept
This stunning living room designed by Prestige Global Designs embraces a stylish black-and-white scheme that was requested by the homeowners. With a combination of materials that include granite, leather, and varieties of black and grey marble, the team elevated the neutral palette and added depth to the space.
The connected living and dining areas are positioned in a manner that allows for conversation to easily flow between both spaces. The living room boasts a feature wall crafted from black Nero Marquina marble that’s reflective. The dining area, on the other hand, features a statement pendant light piece accompanied by mirrored ceiling panels that intensifies the sense of space and creates a distinction between the two spaces.
With its innovative design and luxurious ambience, this glamorous living room won the Best Living Room (Reader’s Choice) accolade at the Tatler Design Awards 2021.
