Hey Steven and Chris, I am moving in to my first place and would love some ideas on what to do here. I don't have any furniture and only 3-4 thousand dollars to spend on furnishing my living and dining room. I've sent you a collage of some spaces I love, but really when all is said and done, I'd love a urban chic space that is comfortable to be in. Hope you can take on this design challenge. All the best, Kelly
You have a great space that is a totally blank canvas - OUR FAVOURITE! Keeping your budget in mind, we have selected these great pieces for your new home. Here is the new layout for your space.
Sofa: $589 - This sofa is fantastic because it folds down to accommodate any overnight guests. The sofa is on the wall across from your entrance so the focus is on the largest and most impactful piece.
Accent Chairs: $329.00 ea - All the inspiration images you showed us had some sort of animal print in them. We love these chairs and think they will add some great whimsy to the space.
Coffee Table: $499.00 - This will give you some much needed visual weight in the middle of your wide space and the concrete surface will be a great place to kick up your feet and showcase colourful accessories.
Television Unit: $ 397.00 - These pieces that are sold separately and assembled to look like a custom piece.
Floor Lamp: $ 329.00 - Because you don't have an overhead light fixture, we want to give the illusion of it. This arc lamp is perfect!
Dining Light: $ 79.99 - We want to bring the light down lower to the table and increase the scale for some punch. Go for something streamlined like this one.
Curtains: $34.00 - We would like to add some balance to the space by framing the view with curtains. This is a great option for you.
Rug: $ 169.00 - Anchoring the space is very important. Being a neutral texture, it will add warmth and interest without being distracting.
Sideboard: $695.00 - Keeping with the mid century modern look, we love the lines of this sideboard, however we would like to see you stain it dark to contrast with your floors.
Dining Set: $140.00 - We found this great modern dining room set on an online classified site. This is a great way to keep costs low!
