8 Home Items to Pull Off the Modern Minimalist Style for Your Living Room
This is how you can get on this trend.
Looking to revamp your living room into something simple yet functional? Consider modern minimalism. Characterized by simple lines, geometric shapes, and subdued colors (with one bold color accent, if you wish), it’s big on functionality and aims to showcase beauty through simplicity.
Modern minimalist style usually has the following elements: wood; raw and unpainted concrete for that gritty, industrial look; recycled materials like driftwood that have been upcycled and repurposed; steel for structural elements and architectural details; and glass to lend the space that sleek look and — on windows — to let natural light in.
Here are some useful tips on how you can work that look into creating your living room. Just keep in mind: Less is more.
Pick furniture with simple, clean lines
Choose furniture with very little visual clutter in terms of form or color palette. These pieces tick all the boxes for modern minimalist decór: clean lines, geometric shapes, and steel elements.
Opt for neutral colors for your palette
Choose neutral, earth tones to create a sophisticated minimalist look. With its grey and brown hues and wood detail, this chair works in any modern minimalist home.
Or, you could also pick one color — like gray, khaki, beige, or blue — and get pieces in different shades to create a seamless monochrome look.
Choose simple decorations
Keep the decór clean and straightforward. Stay away from ornate, busy, fussy pieces that make the space look cluttered. Choose those that inject beauty or sophistication to your space without the unnecessary clutter.

Throw in an accent piece
Though the modern minimalist design is streamlined and clean, it’s never dull. Adding textured pieces such as throw pillows or a rug keeps a room feeling homey and warm. Just make sure to choose ones that follow your chosen palette.
A charming accent chair such as this one adds character and keeps the room from looking too bland.
Keep lighting fixtures to a minimum
One key feature of modern minimalist homes is glass windows that let natural light in unobstructed. So, keep lighting fixtures simple and focus on functionality instead.
