What happens when art takes over the central role in a living room furniture? What do rooms look like in which a central piece of work characterizes the character of the room? When and how does art become something more than a linchpin in interior design?
There are many possible answers!
The applied techniques that serve this purpose are very varied and thoroughly intelligent. Often they complement the color palette in a perfect way. In other cases, the work of art particularly illustrates the character of the living room furniture by "summarizing" its shapes, colors or textures.

Artwork with the colors of the interior
Weld the color palette of your interior design with a large-scale artwork for the wall. Thus, this immediately takes on a central aesthetic and functional role in the room. Choose an elegant theme and take the living room furniture to a high level.
An interesting work of art peps up the bare wall
For a very modern design, professional interior designers recommend the following strategy: They recommend a neutral background and few accents in eye-catching colors. Especially the latter should then be included in the great work of art.

Strong contrast between the artwork and the furniture
Both the artwork and the furniture can be meaningful and yet provide a consistent appearance together. This works when both contrast and balance. This result comes in many ways. One possibility would be that art and furniture show related forms and contrasting colors. The reverse variant would also be possible.
The artwork usually provides color contrast, but is in line with the room design
Art in different forms
Less conspicuous art can also strongly characterize the living room furniture. Select smaller works in bright and neutral colors and count on the multitude of these. Important in this strategy is the mixture of different art genres. A good combination would be graphics on the wall in combination with sculpturally designed accessories, such as vases, lamps, etc.

Clean lines and eye-catching colored paintings
The following strategy is suitable for minimalist living room furnishings. In this case, the clean lines and shapes should prevail. For that you should select works of art with bold colors. One to two decorative elements in the rest of the interior can also be made in one of the bright colors of the pictures.

The works of art as contrasts
Through art, you can set strong contrasts in the room and thus create a dramatic mood in the living room furniture. The juxtaposition of modern furniture and industrial background, which is characterized by Pop Art, is simply gorgeous.

Spectacular art for monochrome interiors
How can an art work spectacularly within a monochrome interior? In this case, you should let the slightly eye-catching colors dominate the artwork. For example, if you have a modern concept that is dominated by gray and white, you can hang a graphic with lots of black on the wall. If you have colored accents in the room, they should also be present in the room.
Emphasis by lighting
The right lighting makes it easy to stage the artwork
Emphasize the importance of the artworks by highlighting them with special lighting. Draw inspiration from galleries. Side-mounted industrial-style wall lights are an excellent solution for almost any style.
These are just a few of many examples of how art can play a central role in interior design. There are many more that work well and look modern. All of the art-dominated living room furnishings have one thing in common: the works lend drama and spectacular character to the overall concept. Whether they are a main accent or determine and intensify the decorative design depends entirely on the interior designer and the specific case!
