Calgary's top trending modern living room furniture designs in 2021

December 01, 2021

While we thought the pandemic was going to begin and end in 2020, here we are nearing the end of 2021 with COVID-19 still looming. Nonetheless, one of the things we are grateful that the pandemic has offered us over the past year is the ability to stay home and reinvest in our home design and personal spaces. As a local modern furniture store, we thank you for supporting us through this turbulent time and we hope you are loving your new modern living room furniture!


We don’t know about you, but most of us have been doing a lot of LIVING in our living room spaces this past year - visiting with friends and family, playing games, watching TV, and maybe even a little bit (or a lot) of couch working (I say as I write from the comfort of my living space).

Our living room furniture and designs have been put to a whole new kind of test this past year. This is why we have tested not only what looks great but also what feels great when it comes to modern home furnishings and Calgary furniture. We are inspired and proud of the modern furniture market we have helped build here in Calgary and we are excited to share the top trending modern living room furniture designs we saw in 2021.

Go neutral, with a pop!

Neutral and white designs are still undoubtedly one of the most popular living room design trends; however, where we saw the small shift this past year was the “pop” of colour or character that many wanted to add to their neutral spaces. From throw cushions to vases, these vibrant pieces of decor brought joy and liveliness to individual living spaces. This is a match made in heaven, in our opinion, because it is the balance of a space that will adapt to the trends while still maintaining its integrity over time.

Float your furniture and create a multipurpose space!

Gone are the days of designated, closed-off dining rooms and separate living and family rooms. Multipurpose is all the rage and while we have been doing a lot of work from home over the past year, these multifaceted spaces have really served their purposes. One of our favourite design trends that accompanied this movement was the encouragement to float your furniture. Don’t worry about having every couch and chair against a wall anymore. Instead, break up and utilize your space using your furniture! Add a desk to your living area or a crafting corner to your dining space. It will look stunning and no one has to know WHY you’re doing it. We promise to keep your secret.

If you are looking to revamp or restyle your space then come visit us! We stay on top of the trends to offer the best Calgary furniture options for any living space. We are the modern furniture store you have been looking for!
