Mad Men may be coming to an end this year, but the midcentury modern design craze is far from over. The clean lines, simple and chic designs, and cool color palettes are still absolutely of the moment as we can see in this house from HerZu Design. An upper level home with views of the city, this house includes contemporary furnishings that would be just as comfortable in Don Draper’s office as they are in this 21st century apartment. Take a look inside for more stylish inspiration from the stunning wood floors to the cowhide club chair.

The main living area unsurprisingly has an open floor plan. This choice works particularly well in this space because light from the wall of windows is able to filter in through the dining room, living room, and kitchen unobstructed. The cool gray, white and turquoise color palette is also decidedly hip and runs through the entirety of the house.

Texture is also a major component of the design here. The slick wood flooring contrasts with the plush geometric area rug and also the soft, tufted loveseat and side chair. Different materials manage to mesh and play off one another, creating interest without feeling busy.

Most of the personality comes from the larger furnishings and some carefully selected accessories that sit perched on tabletops and floating shelves. As far as wall mounted art, the eye is drawn to the cool marbled hanging behind the sofa. It is subtle but sophisticated and creates its own sort of artistic force field with its swirls of color.

Accessories in the kitchen and dining room revolve around the idea of those smooth clean lines. White molded chairs, an overly simple dining table and polished chrome barstools sacrifice nothing when it comes to style but never detract from the bigger picture, either.

If you’re lucky enough to have a large and spacious kitchen … today isn’t for you. It’s so much easier to design and utilize a room when there’s a lot of space to work with. But it’s when the area is small, you have a bigger challenge designing, decorating and making it functional for the family. Today we are inspiring you with wonderful photos of small kitchen design layouts that are ideal space saving concepts great for many apartments and lofts.  Let’s have a look and hopefully, you’ll see a kitchen that inspires your next big move.

all in one kitchen designs

A pull-out cutting and prep board and a concise sink area, we love the innovation and contemporary feel behind this small kitchen design. We love how this space utilizing every inch, but still doesn’t feel or look cluttered in the least. Also, the smooth, stainless steel accents help push forward that futuristic vision.

compact kitchens

Check out this red-accent kitchen nook! There’s enough space to prep and create dinners and desserts for days to come, but there isn’t a chaotic feel just because it’s smaller. There’s drawers and cabinets to utilize and even enough counter top to grab a quick breakfast or decorate cookies during Christmas.

kitchen with small design

A bit bigger than its two predecessors, this kitchen has a bar area that’s perfect for afternoon snacking and homework time, which gives the opposite end enough room for food prep. There’s definitely enough cabinet space above (and we assume below) for dish and food organization as well, and it’s all done in a very traditional, yet modern, look.

open kitchen designs

Your kitchen really doesn’t have to take up an entire room, instead it can be just a part to a space. In studio areas or rooms without partitions, you can have your kitchen be a focal point but not the entire presence, just take a look at this beauty. It’s clean, precise and functional without being overwhelming.

small contemporary kitchen spaces

Here’s another kitchen with an ultra modern vibe and cherry red accents. There’s a timelessness and always-in-style appeal to red, white and black color trios, so even when your space is small it can still be trending and fashion-forward. There’s just enough space to make that corner kitchen function and we love the open shelving option giving the area a more open feel.

small kitchen space

Although a bit dark, this kitchen has a lot of room for prep – which is great for those that love to cook and bake. We also love the cabinets and drawers, there’s enough for all of your essentials but there’s a smoothness that doesn’t make the room feel bulky or too chunky.

small kitchen spaces

We fell in love with this charming little kitchen at first glance. There’s definitely a more cottage-esque vibe that’s going on in the area. Even though the cabinetry is quite contemporary and chic, the unfinished wood floor, floral printed backsplash and quaint little breakfast table make it so girlish and flirty.

super small kitchens

Chic and clean with a dash of stainless steel, we are swooning over this light and bright kitchen corner. There’s all the necessities you need to make dinner fast (although we’re not sure where the fridge is or will go just yet) and we love the contrast between the solid counter tops and lower cabinets.

ultra modern small kitchens

Not only does this small kitchen space has a wonderful way of utilizing and compacting all the needs one must have in the kitchen but the overall design is gorgeous and unique! The curved counter top, the double (yet separated) sink, the traditional stove top and hovering breakfast bar have come together to create the chicest kitchen on the list!

We saved the tiniest of our small kitchen design layouts for last.  You can see how the island flows into the theme of the entire living space.  The Microwave is snugly placed in the cabinetry along with some added storage space.  This is ideal for a tiny apartment or living space.

The first project is called "Urban Palace" and it is located in Taipei, Taiwan. It combines elements of a palatial estate suited for royalty from the Qin or Han Dynasty but also with plenty of natural materials, particularly wood. The team has taken creative license with the ideal of a palace here. The ceilings are not high and ostentatious. Instead, the design brings focus to the length of the space, with laterally spacious open floor plan.

In addition to plenty of exposed wood and marble, the home is careful to incorporate natural lighting wherever possible. By using glass walls to separate the bedroom from the main living areas, light is allowed to flood in, even in the absence of windows.

The second home we are featuring has its similarities to the urban palace, also creating a distinct comfort and luxurious peace even within the bustle of a big city. The team has subscribed here to the idea that the more white and blank space they leave in the initial design, the better able a homeowner is to add their own ideas, whether that means art, color, or furniture.

Of course, the furniture in this particular home is already quite astonishing in its craftsmanship and beauty, from a deconstructed version of a leather sectional to a Le Corbusier-inspired club chair and asymmetric coffee table.

The smaller footprint in this home does mean that the rooms are snugly fit together, with a long dining table just a couple of feet behind the sofa. Keep things open with partial room dividers makes the space feel bigger and again allows light to flow throughout.

When you think of concrete design, you may have images of dark, industrial-inspired interiors and drab, warehouse style exteriors. And while that is certainly one way to incorporate the material, a much less common – but brighter – option is also available in the way of translucent concrete. The light transmitting concrete feels high tech, but it was actually first introduced in 1935. Through the use of fine grain concrete and light conducting elements, usually optical fibers, construction companies today are able to create concrete blocks that transmit light and look almost as if they are glowing from within. This concrete is found variously in fine architecture buildings and also as cladding for an interior walls. In this post, we will show you a few different ways that this incredible material has been used in the real world.

The first project is a restoration of a hotel. By using FIBROTRANS concrete, designer Albert Abutov was able to create a unique separation between the main space of the room and the bathroom. The material allows sunlight to pass through into the bathroom during the day and lighting from the bathroom to illuminate the bedroom at night. These images give you a sense of how warm and almost otherworldly this material can be.

In another example from Lucen Lichtbeton, a company that produces this special concrete, we can see how it is used to create intricate patterns and designs of light that would otherwise be impossible (or extremely difficult) to create using concrete. We can also see how silhouettes are transmitted through the concrete blocks, as if by magic.

This image is the exterior of the Italian Pavilion, created for the Expo Shanghai in 2010. It was the first building ever created using i.light from the Italcementi Group. More than 3,700 panels of concrete were used in the project, and they cover 1,887 square meters (20,311 square feet). As the exterior lighting changes throughout the day, the building takes on different tones and shapes for a dramatic effect.

We love to inspire, especially when it comes to your most personal of spaces. Your bedroom needs to reflect your own styles and feelings, and what better way to do that than to create the right amount of energy and fashion-forward vision throughout the room? We’ve compiled a list of 14 unbelievable master bedroom designs and pictures that will get your creative juices flowing for your upcoming renovation or redecorating project. But this list also touches on a variety of style themes and genres, helping you figure out what area of interior design you’d like to pursue.

avant garde bedroom designs

This room is bright and spacious and the furniture layout utilizes every inch in a function and seamlessly smooth way. There’s a subtly about the room that adds a relaxed charm and lightness at the first step in. The golden tones have a sophisticated and femininity feel and mesh well with the creams and chocolate furniture pieces. There’s also a nice balance of textures around the room from the rug to accent wall.

bedroom designs with orange

This is a very modern yet masculine design and styling. The colors start in a neutral zone and are highlight by a rich olive green and burnt mango. The shining accent wall that holds a storage area provides an illusion of more space and the stripes add a personal touch to a smooth and clean palette of a room. We also love how there’s enough space to add a lounge chair inside for resting outside of bedtime.

bedroom with ambient lighting

Here’s a beautiful example of how to utilize a smaller bedroom in your apartment or town home. Highlight your large windows and view of the city by clearing the area. Always add texture from the floor up – here it’s seen in the area rug and bedding choices. And even when you’re keeping within a neutral vibe, using a variety of shades will add the right amount of interest to keep things stylish.

bedroom with gold color

There’s something to clean and refreshing about this room without being too cold or unwelcoming. We always love a brightness inside the bedroom as it makes even the smallest of spaces wider and more spacious. Of course, having your bathroom connected to your bedroom is always a plus and so is the innovation behind the window into the shower.

bedroom with sleigh bed

Black and white will always be a classic color combination. It will always stay in style, but when you add some charcoal into the mix like in this bedroom, you get a more contemporary, fashion-forward vision. And this particular space has modern, beautiful furniture pieces that match, creating a simple, chic look.

black and white bedroom design

Not only doe this bedroom look as if it has an ocean view with those perfect, wall-size windows but it’s such a spacious area to play with and have fun decorating. We love the simplicity that overtakes this room but the infusion of contemporary style that was sewn into every choice made – from the floor lamp to the accent chairs.

couture bedroom decor

Here’s a luxury, feminine bedroom that certainly makes a scene. Golden-hued and unforgettable this Victorian, lush space has a warm, welcoming and relaxing beauty about its posh presence. Of course, the round bed is unique enough to make a statement on it’s own, but the accent wall behind it helps to enhance the decadence behind the overall design.

decorating with wall panels

Clean, zen and with a no-fuss finish, here’s a room without anything to overwhelm or clutter. There’s a certain Asian-inspired, zen touch to every corner of the room, from the low bedding to the wood compliments. And the neutrality of the space creates a clean and revitalizing finish.

designer master bedroom decor

The mix between modern and girlish charm is palpable in this space. Between the chic and traditional-esque furniture and the soft tones and chandelier choice, you’ve got a great melding of styles. There’s even space enough to add a small desk for your personal work space.

feng shui bedroom designs

Sometimes the best thing you can do for yourself is create a safe haven. And that safe haven doesn’t need to be cluttered with furniture or accent pieces. Instead, the walls of the bedroom can be soft and darker-hued creating an enveloped feeling and simple style. That’s why we love this bedroom design!

feng shui interior designs

Be bold with your accent wall and create a black, textured piece to accent your sexy, sultry bedroom. We’re loving the darkness and mysteriousness swirling around this space. The lighting spread around the room also adds to the contemporary atmosphere with it’s soft, romantic warmth.

master bedroom with platform bed

Here’s a room that combines modern pieces with a touch of the beach! It’s such a luxurious look from the sandy bedding to the outside view, you’re getting a vacation-vibe just from stepping inside this bedroom. There’s also a great balance found around the room that keeps things simple, making it a great place to rest.

master bedroom with sky light

The colors found in this room create a fun and inviting spirit. It’s youthful and fresh without being too kitschy or kid-friendly. The window placement is so much fun and interesting and so is the pedestal and focal point this bed has been made to be. And take a peek at those bubble-like accent chair, we’re in love!

modern bedroom with round bed

One of the more unique set-ups of the pack, this bedroom was made for a woman with an eclectic spirit and independent nature. The round bed, the funky light fixture and the variety of textures and tones make this bedroom an interesting feast for the eyes and comfy place to rest and enjoy. day in and day out.

When a home is allowed to celebrate the beauty of minimalism, it can end up feeling sparse or even cold. But the three houses included in this post, from the team at Free Interior, are anything but cold while still staying true to many minimalist ideals. The spaces each include warm color combinations, soft textures, and plenty of vibrant personality that allows for them to welcome guests and be habitable in a practical – but still beautiful – way.

The first home is a four bedroom space in Taipei that measures 2562 square feet (238 square meters). The two story home is quite spacious and manages to incorporate both sleek, Asian-inspired design and a bit of playful whimsy. This tongue-in-cheek style is immediately evident in the living room where, in lieu of a coffee table, we find a few hewn tree trunks on a grassy area rug, accompanied by a lemon-esque love seat. It's the perfect place for children of any age to relax.

The next home is 1423 square feet (132 square meters) and two bedrooms. The simplicity is still immediately evident, but with more of a serious edge. Neutral tones pervade the space, with light fixture making their mark - like a modern answer to a chandelier that hangs from the vaulted dining room ceiling. A landing that overlooks the main living area below is glass, as is the railing up the side of the staircase. With the addition of a neon accent light in the kitchen, this home takes on a bit of 80s bachelor pad appeal.

Spring will always conjure up feelings of renewal and rejuvenation. And a lot of times those feelings settle in the home and we start cleaning, organizing and redecorating for the year. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of 11 living room furniture ideas and that will brighten up a home and get your creative wheels turning. The living room and the kitchen are the focal points and centerpieces of the family home, so it’s only natural we start there when it’s time for a sprucing. Let’s have a look!

We are swooning over this eclectic mix of living room furniture. From the plush, grey couch, sweater-knit pouff and quirky additions around the entire space, it’s quite the cozy and welcoming space. But it’s also full of personal charm, youthful appeal and trendy stylings. It’s the perfect inspiration for a young apartment or newlywed home.

Here’s a youthful but more sophisticated and modern look for your living room. We love the wood and black, chic finishes combined at the entertainment area and coffee table. But we also love the overall muted and relaxed look making a contemporary space still very welcoming and warm.

light wood wall units

Take a look around this femininly touched, rustic-infused, yet overall contemporary living room escape. The soft, light wood brings a natural, organic foundation to the sharp-edged space. The textural additions such as the rug and throw blanket add a coziness. And the electric fireplaces makes it a warm room for the family.

living room designs with colors

Here’s a great mix of color and modern inspiration. There’s nothing messy or overwhelming about the room, even with the cherry red focus it’s not harsh on the eyes. We are loving the pops of primary colors on the couch, highlight the black. And we’re even more in love with the friendly tulips in the corner and easy shelving in the back for organizing.

living room with dark wood floors

Simple and clean with a pop of red, there’s a lot to love about this living room. The wall shelving is great for displaying and organizing, provide a lot of room without being chunky, bulky or overwhelming. The seating is cozy and welcoming, but still very strong and contemporary.

living room with grey walls

There’s a lot of entertaining space available in this spacious living room, but that means there’s also a lot for resting and relaxing. The lengthy couch, the extra accent seats and the area in between all provide for playtime and enjoyment. There’s a sleek tone and modern nature around the room as well with the simple coffee table and geometric-infused shelving.

living room with light wood floors

Here’s another beautiful living room full of modern appeal, neutral tone sand just the right amount of “pop” to make it interesting. The red accent chair is a beautiful focal point to the room and there’s a great amount of shelving, again, making it easy to display and organize all of your media.

living rooms with area rugs

There’s a certain femininity that’s felt throughout this living room as well. With it’s softer tones and more delicate, light-hearted layout, it’s very much a womanly, pretty area. We’re especially fond of the textural, printed area rug that highlights every colored displayed throughout the room.

living rooms with gold wall

This living room has quite the zen feel and we’re totally smitten over these plush, “marshmallow” inspired sofas. They couldn’t be more welcoming in design or perfect for this space. The low, coffee table may not be the most family-friendly but it has the organic, no-fuss feel that fits in the Asian interior design realm that makes the inspiration for this room.

living rooms with wall paper

Of course, we find the textured, printed wall a gorgeous addition to the space, but it’s the furniture that speaks to us in this living room. Simple, clean lines that utilize the space in a precise, but never cluttered, way, it’s a great way to use neutrals and textures. We’re also noticing and loving the combination of ultra modern looks and zen vibes.

living rooms with white tile floors

Light, bright and classic, this living room has a formal feel and a sophisticated, feminine beauty about it. The slick, white sofa, the minimal surrounding elements and the gorgeous, sparkling light fixture hanging above, all come together to create quite the youthful and sexy space.

What is a sunken living room exactly? Dropped down to a lower level than the rest of the home’s space, your living room will be seen slightly underneath the path to the area. It won’t be on an entirely different floor of the home, but instead just a step down. Although it’s quite a classic styling, it’s also quite modern and funky in contemporary homes. There’s an openness and invitational spirit around these living rooms, which are perfect for family homes! Our focus today showcases 10 decorative ideas and pictures of sunken living rooms that illustrate how this style can be tasteful and elegant in any home and create a more interpersonal space between your family and guests.

big sunken living rooms

Located outside, this sunken living room space is clean and chic but still very inviting. We love the solid, neutral foundation with the teal and mango pops sprinkled throughout the cushy sofas. This is a great room for entertaining and enjoying each other’s company without a lot of fuss or chaos.

large sunken living rooms

Sometimes it’s not the entire room that’s sunken, but instead, you can fit just the seating area inside. We’re absolutely in love this cozy design. The creamy white cushions offset the Moroccan-styled throw pillows that provide an ever-welcoming spirit to the level down.

living rooms with wood flooring

You can see from this shot above how the living room space drops a bit below the surface of the rest of the space – where the kitchen and hallway connect. We love how these rooms can be signaled off but still feel very inviting in spirit. And this particular pace has the neutral duo of browns and grays that inspire us.

open living room designs

Here’s another example of a very small sunken living room, that’s almost like a cozy corner sectioned off from the house. It’s a classic, modern design filled with classic, modern furniture. It’s definitely a timeless look that will never go out of style and the entire family can enjoy.

round sunken living room pictures

Similar to one of its predecessors this seating space is sunken below the surface of this incredibly stylish and open home. This particular sink has such a unique and artistic presence that actually enhances the rest of the home. We love how this little nook was carved out and set apart to enjoy.

small sunken living rooms

This sunken living room is found on the side of the home, instead of centered, but we’ve fallen in love with how it was decorated. Because it’s found off to the corner, it was easy to create a very casual and homey feel without taking away from the slickness of modern vision of the entire house.

sunken living room images

A smooth finish with the hardwood floors and gorgeous, open windows providing the best natural lighting money can buy, this sunken living room works for large rooms with a simple vision. And we’re really loving the small addition of the cushion seats used to sit on the outer edges of the level.

sunken living room with marble floors

Centered in front of the home’s windows, Step down to find yourself in a creamy, cozy living room. This looks like a classic, West coast style but with the extra addition of the “sunken” accent. It gives it a fresh and modern feel without overpowering any of the casualty.

ultra contemporary sunken living rooms

Here’s another really eclectic version of the sunken living room. Although it could also look quite modern and sleek, the plush, colorful pillows, artwork choice and other various accents creates a youthful and funky vibe. Again, it’s not that the whole living room is leveled down, in this instance it’s just the cozy, relaxing seating area.

white living room design

My personal favorite of the bunch, this living space may be sectioned off and sunken away from the rest of the home, but it’s got so much personality in its neutrality that it’s incredibly inspiring. Whites, wooden pieces with touches of black, the contrast is gorgeous and the “low-down” version of the room creates a ultra fashion-forward appeal.

Unless you yourself are part of the 1%, it’s hard to not be at least a little curious about how those lucky people live. And perhaps nothing is quite so intriguing as where they might lay their heads down each night. The luxury bedrooms featured in this post are the height of indulgence from sumptuous bedding to glorious bedroom chandeliers, they offer us a glimpse into the world that always seems just out of reach.

The first bedroom here, designed by Mauritz Snyman, uses soft and soothing grays and silvers to create a sparkling, luxurious feel. From an ultramodern chandelier that dangles over the bed to a plush silvery gray carpet that practically begs for your bare feet, waking up in this bedroom would be like waking up inside a warm storm cloud.

While having more money might seem like a one way ticket to all the happiness you could handle, it doesn't hurt to bring in some cheerful colors, too. This sharp sunny bedroom has plenty of that with splashes of citrus and lots of light.

Of course, sometimes a stripped down design is what luxury is all about. This sleek and minimalist bedroom still speaks to luxury but it does so in a whisper. From simple white gauze curtains to a long and low bed there is nothing here that isn't necessary. Except maybe the chandelier.

With 198 square meters (2131 square feet) available, plenty of design work went into creating this open and vibrant two bedroom loft in Kiev. The space was designed by the architecture and design team at Ukrainian-based Soesthetic Group. Although there are plenty of fashionable and even trendy elements in use – such as white painted brick and clean, contemporary lines – the overall feeling in the home is an overall timeless kind of style that is youthful and lasting. Take a look inside and see what we mean.

A top floor house, the pitched ceiling creates its own design challenges but also adds immediate interest to the main living area. By bisecting the large room with a floating wood platform, the design has managed to create separate spaces for work and relaxing without putting up any full walls. This makes the pitched ceiling more stylish and less closed off. A couple of carefully places skylights and plenty of bright white paint help, too.

The family room needs to be approachable, warm, welcoming and always feel like home. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be upbeat, stylish and fashion-forward. Forgo the dull, boring and simply traditional furniture pieces and instead go for designs that inspire you but still come together to create a look the entire family and come to enjoy and feel cozy in. We have included 15 stellar designs and photos of family room furniture ideas that will get your wheels turning and help you to transform the family room into something so much more special but still as comfortable as ever.

contemporary den furniture

Grays and blues will always be colors that give off a welcoming and relaxing ambiance, which is why it’s a great idea to dip your family room in them. Of course you can still add textures and fun prints to create interest, but overall this living space seen above was made for a magazine spread and a movie night with the family. It’s that stylish and creatively built, but with comfort in mind.

contemporary family room furniture

When you have a super open space, you sometimes need to “create” a room. Block off certain spaces to make them feel a bit more cozy and comfortable like the example seen above. It’s unique in his circular form and extremely contemporary with its solid color-blocked theme. But it’s also still very welcoming towards the entire family and friends too!

Here’s a more formal living room example but one that’s still functional and family-friendly. There’s enough seats for everyone in the house to have a cozy place to rest but the overall theme is very fashion-forward and sophisticated. We are loving the light fixture used as the artistic centerpiece of the space as well.

This is family room is smaller than most of our other examples but it doesn’t lack in style. Because of its size, the white focus of the room brightens and widens, which is also a benefit to your home. And we love the easy and clean eclectic touches pointed around the area, from the rug to the textured room partition, it’s full of fun style!

Open spaces should always be utilized. And this room knew how to use the space without overcrowded or becoming too fussy. The furniture is slender but it also fills the space. We love the youthful vibe of this family room and how eclectic the energy is. We especially love the mixed materials used throughout giving it an even more interesting vibe.

If you have older kiddos in the house and the family is inspired by a more sophisticated, vintage air, these pieces may be just the right fit. It’s too formal for if you have little ones running around but this plush sofa and loveseat work for those that are old enough not to mess with. The rest of the room is filled with timeless, black and white pieces, hints of femininity and a dash of Parisian flair.

family room furniture pictures

Not only are we loving the chunky sofas but the centerpiece of the room couldn’t get any cozier. This electric fireplace provides the perfect focal point to this bright and welcoming escape in the house. The silver tufts give a pop of personality and the bare windows add gorgeous, natural lighting for afternoon gatherings.  The theme of this living room furniture idea is warmth and conversation with the way all pieces are centered closely together.

The symmetry in the room is perfection and that type of balance provides a welcoming, warm vibe that’s perfect and needed for a family room. The fireplace gives a comfy ambiance and the cushy chairs and sofa give a traditional style theme by matching and remaining in the neutral zone. Of course, the fresh flowers help to create even more family-friendly essence.

modern den furniture

This family room is more like a family nook. The enclosed, dark space is perfect for a bit of rest and relaxation. What’s perfect is the minty furniture placed in this chocolate corner which lightens and brightens up the dullness. But it certainly doesn’t take away from the covered, safe sense of this darker living room.

modern family furniture ideas

Make your family room pop with this chartreuse sofa set! Minus the wet  pet, this space looks like it was designed and made with a family in mind. From the floor cushions to the eclectic mix of textures and neutral tones, it’s a vibrant space to rest, relax and have fun in!

Chocolate browns can, in fact, offset charcoals and grays quite nicely. For a unique mix give your hazey room a pop of neutrality with interest by pairing contrasting subdued tones. But, even if you’re going for an ultra modern look, make sure you’re going for a set that gives the family the right kind of comfort.

Cranberry is such a unique color to paint the living room. Because of its boldness it’s usually left for the bedrooms, home offices and sometimes the dining rooms too. But with this gorgeous cream furniture, this family space has a light and fashionable essence that’s so easy to enjoy.

modern living room furniture

Again, smaller spaces can make a big splash. This contemporary area if full of posh style and modern appeal but it’s still warm and welcoming to any passerby. The fireplace acts as the focus which will always provide the right kind of cozy spirit. And this faux leather furniture blends well with the textured, animal print rug and even the popping color of artwork seen above the entire space.

stylish family room furniture

Here’s another gorgeous, open and refreshing space. This may be the longest couch that we’ve ever encountered but it also looks like one of the most comfy and the most perfect furniture piece for movie night with a big family! We’re loving the monochromatic undertone of the room and the built in bookshelf even more.

When it comes to luxury houses in Los Angeles, there is always architecture to consider but perhaps nothing is quite as attractive as a spectacular view. This Hollywood Hills home, located in the fashionable Bird Streets area above the Sunset Strip, has both a stunning exterior and an incredible view of the entire city below. Boasting current and former neighbors like Dr. Dre, Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, George Harrison, Aviici, and Megan Ellison this neighborhood is clearly a destination for those with a taste for the finer things in life. Look inside and decide if this home from architect Paul McClean and the interior designers at Minotti, is where you would spend your millions.

The entrance to the home takes guests over a modern answer to a medieval moat. A sleek brushed metal bridge gives a view straight through the home's glass walls from front to back, including peeks at the sleek and modern furnishings.

But the views from the back of the house are really what sets this space apart. The home includes three main outdoor areas: a private lounging terrace accessible only from the master suite, a water lounge with bar and fireplace, and a "sky deck" for dramatic entertaining. The views offered from the property stretch from downtown Los Angeles to the Pacific Ocean (on a clear day) and make for impressive events - both intimate and large scale.

When it comes to counter or bar stools, you may want to go with a strictly, backless design. The more “chair” the more bulk you’ll be getting and sometimes that doesn’t work with a smaller space or when you have a clean and neat vision in mind. Let’s have a look at some real-life example of backless counter stool ideas taken in modern kitchen photos that work in the space given and give great inspiration for a future redesign or redecorating project.

contemporary backless counter stools

Here are some classic, stainless steel designs that will work for almost any counter, any bar area or any room you need them to place function in. They’re chic, they’re clean and in this particular space they blend easily with the simple and contemporary kitchen design. This area is a more masculine space but these stools would work in more feminine rooms with ease as well.

height adjustable counter stools

If you’d like something a bit funkier, these designs may be right up your alley. Made with wooden seats and colored foundations, these are great piece for your eclectic apartment or even inside your dorm room at the breakfast bar or kitchen counter. They’re a fashion-forward mix that’s perfect for blending and transforming. We’d even love to see these stools in pastels for a more charming, girlish addition.

minimal looking counter stools

Similar to the ones directly above, these backless counter stools have a more subdued design in terms of color. Again, they have wooden seats but instead of a colored foundation they’re steel and blendable. They’ll go well in traditional homes and even the most modern and contemporary of visions. They’re also like little pieces of structural art that can pop throughout the home.

modern backless counter stools

Chic and ultra modern but with a feminine twist, here are some vintage-inspired counter stools that work for more formal kitchen settings. Black seats and details, silver footings – the contrast is timeless and the design is a bit unique when it comes to a classic stool style. We see these working in a larger dining room with a bar area just as much as at the breakfast bar! They’d be great in a Parisian details or old-age spirited room, don’t you think?

modern chrome counter stools

Futuristic design ideas can work great in even the most homey of homes, but they’ll need a tinge of contemporary vibes to make it happen. This fashion-forward stool seen here has a light, airy and casual look but it still makes a unique splash throughout the home. Just imagine if they came in colors! There’s a place to fit your fit and although they may not be the most comfortable of choices, they are a great addition.

plastic counter stools

One of the most unique and outside-the-box of the bunch, these stools don’t even look like stools at first glance. They’re funky and youthful, perfect for apartments or dorm rooms. They’d even work great in a bedroom as your desk chair if you’d like to stray away from a bit of traditionalism. And these two colors would definitely pop in any space of any tone.

retro modern counter stools

For a more industrial finish, try these stools on for size! Button seating and a masculine foundation, they’re great for homes that need and want a more welcoming, yet unique, detailing. They aren’t formal in the least, but your home doesn’t need a formality or ultra chic edge, instead the key is to be inspired by the style. These could be easily used in neutral tones but we are loving the blue button tops – who doesn’t love blue?

With just a flick of the leg, these traditional stools went to a more modern shape in an instant. They blend well with the clean simplicity of the rest of the kitchen and they don’t cause a fuss or take away from any main focal points of designs throughout the space. There is a bit of a spidery finish to these stools but we’re loving that sophisticate and timeless energy.

Aren’t these fun, futuristic little pieces a perfect match for a home that loves to make a scene and make a bold statement without being too harsh on the eyes. White makes it a more approachable piece but the style was made for rooms that are inspired and visioned with fashion-forward energy. These too could pass as artistic creations used to jazz up your home.

These counter stools make a beautiful addition to this posh kitchen island. The bulk of the design work well since the counter top is of such a large size. We love how the whites blend together but the unique design of the legs still stand out without overshadowing the rest of the space.
