1. Modern luxurious living room is in trend
The "Modern Luxury", currently in vogue, is a modern interior design using straight lines and horizontal lines, as well as materials and textures, to create high-quality designs.
Classic Luxury is a contrasting style to Modern Luxury. Classic Luxury is an interior style that evokes images of wealth and power and preferred by seniors.
In Classic Luxury, items symbolizing affluence and status, such as chandeliers and Persian carpets, are used to create a sense of luxury. Decorating with cabriole leg furniture and luxurious furnishings with gold embellishments is also part of the Classic Luxury style.
Modern luxury, on the other hand, is favored by a younger people and emphasizes qualities such as culture and uniqueness. It takes advantage of the texture of materials, such as natural stone tiles and solid wood flooring. One's value and culture is expressed by interior design, such as furniture that has been handed down in the family from generation to generation.
Modern luxury can be described as a style that emphasizes authentic values that are meaningful to you.
2. Nine architectural examples of luxurious living rooms
To achieve the living room interior design you prefer, see examples to help you visualize it. Here we describe nine examples of luxurious living rooms designed by architects.
Each of these living spaces is rich in individuality that can only be realized in a custom-built house. The key points of each case study are also explained.
2-1. Western-style interior with selected furniture
[Point]High quality space by coordinating the entire space using black as the main color.
Here is an example of a high quality interior design like an international gallery. The Louis Vuitton trunk on the floor and Kenyan arts on the walls are filled with the memories of the owner who has lived abroad for a long time.
The interior items, each of which has a different expression, are united in black, the main color, to create a sense of unity. The lack of elaborate design in the architecture creates a simple, modern finish.
It is a luxurious living room with a sense of essential richness through which you can see the personality of the owner.
2-2. Living room with luxurious monotone interior
[Point]Tiles, a natural material, are used on the floor and walls to add a sense of luxury
To add a sense of luxury, we recommend you incorporate tiles having the texture of real stone into your living room. Here we introduce a monotone interior living room that makes the most of the texture of tiles.
The use of matte-textured black tiles for the flooring material gives the space a high-class feel. Marbles on the wall next to the piano also adds warmth.
The open style kitchen makes each room look like one large space. The storage doors in the living room are also white, giving the whole space a simple monotone look.
It is a wonderful living/dining space where you will want to relax and enjoy your meal while listening to the sound of the grand piano.
2-3. Urban simple & luxurious living room
[Point]Wall storage and indirect lighting are key design features
Here is a living room that looks luxurious yet simple using the minimum colors. The white glossy tiles on the flooring go well with the large glass windows in the atrium.
Indirect lighting on the storage shelves on the wall is a key design feature. A large high window is placed in the direction from which the Tokyo tower can be seen from the living room.
In the energetic city of Tokyo, this urban-style living room is sure to recharge your energy for tomorrow.
2-4. Living room with symbolic spiral staircase
[Point]Symbolic spiral staircase for elegance
If you are aiming for a high-grade interior, we recommend you incorporate one eye-catching design. Here is an example of a spiral staircase with graceful curves placed in a vaulted living room.
The spiral staircase, a feature of European architecture, is a simple design so that it fits well in a modern home. The matched wood grain on the first and second floors creates a warm and inviting space.
It's a high-grade living room with a classical rug that makes you want to relax and watch a movie on the weekend.
2-5. Modern luxury like secret hideaway for adult
[Point]Hotel-like space with a large atrium and glass balustrade on the staircase
Here is an example of a large living room with a vaulted ceiling. Dark colors entirely used in the living room makes a very mature and relaxing space. The wood grain finish on the ceiling creates a sense of calmness and a luxurious atmosphere, just like a hotel.
Rather than brightening the entire room, lighting at some points is another key to creating a luxurious sense. Indirect lighting illuminates the walls and modern pendant lighting illuminates only where necessary.
The living room is like a secret hideaway for adult where you want to relax and enjoy drinks at the bar counter.
2-6. High quality interior using indirect lighting
[Point]Coved ceiling and indirect lighting for a high quality space
If you are designing the floor plan for your own house from now, we recommend you incorporate a coved ceiling in your living room. A coved ceiling is a ceiling that is partially raised in the center of a room.
A coved ceiling creates a sense of depth in a room. Indirect lighting can also be used to create a higher level of illumination.
The TV is recessed into the wall and the entire wall is covered with natural stone, which is another key point for creating a gorgeous atmosphere. The luxurious living room is designed so that you can relax and enjoy a great sunset view from the hill.
2-7. Higher-grade Japanese modern interior
[Point]Interior design luxuriously utilizing the texture of solid wood
If you like Japanese modern style, we recommend you boldly incorporate solid wood to create a quality look. Solid wood flooring has the subtle impression and warmth of real wood and brings a sense of luxury to your living room.
In the example shown in the photo, wood grain is also used in the kitchen surfaces and walls, creating a sense of unity. The furniture on the sideboard and the paintings on the wall also show a good sense of interior design, creating a higher-grade Japanese modern interior.
2-8. Modern luxury renovation
[Point]Renovate floor plan to create large bedrooms
If you want to create a luxurious living room through renovation, we recommend you reduce the number of partition walls to create a large space. Here is an example of the Japanese traditional house renovation having large bedrooms.
The gorgeous design of the interior is eye-catching, such as solid wood herringbone flooring and a chandelier above the dining room. Although a variety of materials is used such as fabric couch and clear side tables, all of them are harmonized by wood grain.
This is a sophisticated living room that incorporates classical design with a modern look.
2-9. Luxury resort-style interior
[Point]Luxury resort design using metal texture
If you want to add a touch of coolness to your luxurious design, we recommend adding metal to your interior. Here are some houses that use metal as accents in a white and wood-grain based interior.
The luster of the stainless steel used for the top panel and ventilation hood of the open kitchen gives a beautiful color to the dining room. The dining room lighting, which is simple but has a strong presence, matches the color of the skeleton staircase, creating a sense of unity.
The dining and living room looks like a high-class resort, with a pleasant breeze blowing through from the courtyard.
