Technology is such an integral part of our lives. It used to be that when you walked into a home, every room had a TV. But things started to change this year and technology isn't being given such a prominent place, especially in the living room anymore.
A living room without a TV can feel more intimate because you aren't designing a room with the mindset that the TV must be visible from every angle. You can design the space based on flow and creating space within space, which gives you more freedom in how things are arranged.
In the living rooms we've designed without TVs, we've created smaller groupings of seating to create more space. These encourage people to sit down and engage with others and can give you more seating than if you just had one focused on the TV.
As Christmas approaches, we hope that these living rooms inspire you to unplug and make the most of the time you have with friends and family. From all of us at Tracy Design Studio, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
