There are few things that are more important than maximizing available space and making use of every inch on offer, when it comes to planning for a contemporary urban home. Yet, for most of us, smart management of space is a constant issue – a problem stems from poor design and décor choices. But you can change all that this year by removing clutter, creating a spacious living environment and bringing home furniture that offers ample storage even while being space-savvy.

A comfortable sofa is undoubtedly the most essential piece of any living room and often ends up defining the style and the decorating scheme of the space. With open plan living growing in popularity, this extends to the style of the kitchen, dining area and the social zone as well. With that in mind, it is essential that you choose a couch that is comfortable, elegant, adapts with changing trends and also acts as the perfect focal point in an open living space.

Despite their seemingly modest presence, end tables make your life a whole lot easier even while adding another unique dimension to the living space.

This is definitely our favorite way of putting the smart bookshelf to use, and it is undoubtedly the most popular choice among contemporary homeowners as well! A bookshelf in the open plan living area can delineate space, creating a distinct boundary between the living room and the dining area or kitchen without blocking light or visual connectivity. Apart from acting as a boundary, the shelf also adds to display and storage space and gives the living area a quick style upgrade. From those open, wiry bookshelves to the more sturdy ones in wood, you can pick a selection that best fits the style of your home and the overall ambiance.

Since most of us cannot afford to change the living room couch (or have the energy for it) with changing color trends, these seemingly neutral additions are a safe choice. So, why wait!
