Create a Chic Living Space

From hosting themed dinner parties to having friends and family over to catch up, your guests will spend the most time on your main living spaces – the dining room and living room. With a bit of inspiration from upscale home accessory superstore Jung Lee, here’s how you can furnish your luxury apartment with chic trends:

  • Table linens, flatware, and serving trays
  • Vases and bowls
  • Hang floating shelves for additional storage
  • Fresh flowers brighten up room with a pop of seasonal color
  • Battery operated candles
  • Textured throw pillows and blankets

Add a Pop of Color with a Rug

If your apartment has hardwood or tile flooring, consider adding a bright area rug to your space. Not only do area rugs add a touch of your personality to the room, but they are top contenders for protecting your floor from scratches and stains.

Lighten Up Your Room

Did you know additional lighting creates the illusion of having more space?

In fact, adding extra lamps helps make a house feel more like a home – with a warm and welcoming feel. From decorative lamps with a colorful shade, antique stained glass lamps for your side table, and tall floor lamps that fill each room with the perfect amount of light, brighten up your apartment’s design.

With it comes to creating the illusion of more space, mirrors from Modani Furniture do just this. In any small space, from entry ways to walk-in closets, wall mirrors reflect light and make the area feel bigger. For larger rooms, we love propped floor mirrors, horizontal wall mirrors over a couch, or any prime spot that will reflect natural light throughout the rest of the room.
