Asian living room design ideas will instantly aggrandize the aesthetics of your space

Did you ask for Asian living room design ideas? Check out our curated collection of the best of the lot. 

The living room is where we spend a considerable part of our day. It’s essential to furnish your living space with gorgeous interiors that perfectly cater to your specialized needs and make you feel at home. The room should be aesthetically pleasing, welcoming and re-energizing. 

The Asian-style interior design highlights the cultures and traditions of India, China, Japan, Vietnam, Thailand, and other Eastern societies. While some Asian-inspired home decor sticks to one style, others blend two or more cultural influences perfectly. The most recognizable designs that people opt for are Chinese and Japanese, but Asian can broadly encompass those from the Indian subcontinent. 

1. Simple, Modern-styled Asian Living Room Design

This Asian living room adds a surplus of positive energy. This living room’s cream and beige ceiling is lit with warm yellow lights that also furnish warmth to the elegant elements of the sofa set, the dark wood coffee table, and other accent furniture items. Besides, the decor has an excellent muted background, beige wallpaper, and a deep red cabinet. 

The colourful bench complements the other decor pieces. However, the element that brings them all together is the latticework. This living space incredibly depicts a typical Asian living room design.

The white and black cushioned sofa, dominated by decorative panels with a few statement accessories, contrasts the entire decor nicely. Furthermore, the white ceiling features brilliant chandelier lighting, raising the aura of the living room’s elegance. Add wooden accent pieces or other old-charm items for a more vintage vibe.

3. Industrial Asian-inspired Living Room Design

This Asian-inspired living room decor bestows the picture of modern Japan. The industrial look matches the pendant lights, the wooden furniture, and the four-legged modern coffee table. There’s a nice contrast between the white walls and light flooring with colourful patterned fabrics and an area rug.

The brilliantly coffered ceilings are illuminated by the large glass window, complementing the lush green garden. The light grey accent wall serves as an excellent background for the elegant, warm lighting of the decor. To augment the brilliance, consider installing a small chandelier.

Install a few brilliant crystal cube pendant lights to contrast the couches’ white ceiling and redwood elements and the oriental-style shelves matching the wooden moulding. The addition of classic portraits on the wall makes this Asian living room all the more fitting and prominent.
