There’s one word that summarises what a classic Italian living room looks like: elegance. This word means that every designer pieces you use have to be from high-quality materials, the colours have to be impeccably be connected to one another, and it has to be very luxurious. Only when those words can be checked off you can say that you have an elegant classic Italian living room.
This is the first example of a classic Italian living room because we clearly see that dark colours are on the winning hand here. The blue-green coloured sofas are characterised by the ‘elegance-principles’. For our contemporary alternative, we went to the Essential Home catalogue and found the Grace armchair, a perfect modern alternative. Because it has both the essential esthetics and the same-ish colour.

The second example, with even new characteristics, of a classic Italian Living room, is this light coloured one. Next to being elegant, those living room also have to be lightened by classic chandeliers or lamps, so they have to be in the same ‘spirit’ as the whole living room. We went to DelightFULL’s catalogue and we found the Miles floor lamp. It would even suit in the Italian living room down below.
