It can actually be simpler than you might think to add a contemporary look to your living room. By using chrome furniture pieces and decorating accents, you can make quick work of your decorating tasks. Chrome furniture and accessories can work quite well with contrasting colors and clean lines, which are popular features in contemporary living room designs. If you choose a chrome coffee table or wall hanging, it could even serve as a bold and eye-catching focal point within the room. Here are a few easy decorating tips you can use to design a contemporary living room with chrome furniture.

Chairs and Couches

A chair or a couch that has chrome accents and legs can be an easy way to add a modern touch to a room. You'll find these furniture pieces in a variety of designs and colors, although black is usually the easiest color to find. The sheen of the chrome finish provides plenty of contrast to the rest of the future piece. When choosing a sofa, it's important to remember that a sectional sofa can be arranged along two walls. When arranged in this fashion, you'll have plenty of seating options, without cramping the room or making it appear smaller. This arrangement will also provide you with plenty of opportunities to use other items in the center of the room as a focal point, such as a beautiful area rug or a coffee table.

Coffee, Occasional and End Tables

Small tables designed with chrome features also work well in a modern living room design. In many cases, you'll find that these tables are designed with chrome legs or sides. Glass tops are also a popular feature with this style of table. The legs on these tables can be crossed, bowed or straight. In some cases, you'll even find tables that are designed with a shelf underneath. This style can be quite handy if you want to display a vase, potted plant, small statue, book or other decorative item under the table. This can actually create a small focal point within the room, without detracting from its overall look.


Sleek chrome wall sconces can look quite modern and attractive in a room, especially when hung on either side of another wall hanging. They also look great when hung over a fireplace or a chrome-legged sofa. Chrome wall sconces have the advantage of providing functional features to the room, in addition to a beautiful look. Other decorative and yet functional chrome accessories could include ceiling lamps. If you have a need for air circulation and additional lighting, a chrome-finished ceiling fan could be the perfect solution. Even a small chrome table lamp can add a nice gleam to a dark corner. Try pairing accessories that have shiny chrome, textured chrome and matte finishes to add visual interest, contrast and beauty. Chrome wall hangings can be combined with plants, wall sconces and other wall hangings for a contemporary look.

Coordinating Colors

Room color can be important when using chrome to create a contemporary look. Try using soft greens and muted blues to create a modern and yet relaxing look. Or, use bright shades of red and orange to add energy to an otherwise monochromatic color scheme.
