This was not true, of course, in the homes of the poor which, if not hovels, were essentially functional. Yet from the Industrial Revolution onwards the idea of domestic comfort grew as did, for those with time on their hands, the concept of leisure. Together, leisure and luxury encouraged the emergence of the living room. Here, at last, was a domestic space - the generalist among rooms - serving no specific functional purpose
The living room featured futuristic Pop Art furniture including an inflatable see-through plastic armchair, a modular orange sofa, a floor-to-ceiling television screen and one of Peter Murdoch’s nominally disposable Polyethylene-coated laminated cardboard “Spotty” chairs that sell for £2,000 in international auction rooms today. The living room of the future was clearly entertaining, fun and open to rapid change.
Layering rugs is a good way to texture in your spaces to the next level. Rugs can allow you section off different spaces in open floor plans, but also give you the opportunity to create movement for less flexible floorplans. Layering smaller rugs over a larger one separates multiple areas in one room.
Meanwhile, the trend for open plan living shows few signs of abating, with interiors magazines filled with giant swooping spaces that serve to function as multi-purpose living areas. All, of course, filled with the latest mod cons again, although these days these are likely to be concealed in clever ways, as loud and flashy interiors give way to an enduring trend for understated luxury.
