In a modern context space is of great importance. Clean, essential and linear lines have the ability to expand the available space. Choosing a piece of furniture with few and targeted elements, such as a sofa at the center of the scene – the large modular sofas, which can be used as a corner sofa or a linear sofa, depending on the configuration, are a very popular choice and guarantee maximum comfort -, a large carpet with geometric designs or abstract shapes and a square or rectangular coffee table, can be a simple but winning choice if the spaces at your disposal are limited.


Complete everything with designer lamps, with steel details for example, to place near the sofa so as to obtain a pleasant soft light. To complete your composition and make it even more fascinating, insert elements that act as focus such as design armchairs and tables. Mix everything with your good taste and you will realize your perfect modern living!
