Painting the floors can open up a world of design possibilities, especially if you choose to paint or stain a concrete floor. For modern simplicity, a bold, solid color or bright white works well. You can also imitate the look of traditional checkerboard tile with two contrasting paint colors. Concrete floors look especially sleek with an ultra-shiny coat of epoxy that reflects light back into the space. Concrete can also be stained for a more subtle finish that imitates the look of quarried stone or marble for a more natural look.
In minimalist fashion this curved contemporary sofa turns into itself, creating its own conversation arc. Sofas like this one, and other shaped sofas, usually take up more space than average. This example is about 11 feet (335 cm) long and needs a total depth of about 54 in. (137 cm). The Womb chair opposite it measures 40 in. (102 cm) wide and 34 in. (86 cm) deep, while its ottoman is 25½ in. (66 cm) wide and 20 in. (51 cm) deep. The nicely balanced furniture placement complements the off-center fireplace.
In this example Jeffers Design Group created a large, formal seating area and supplemented it with a small, informal grouping designed around a central ottoman. That way just two people can sit in this room without feeling swallowed up by the space. The low club chairs prevent the rear space from feeling cut off from the rest of the room.
