Tips on Living Room Furniture
Your living room is the central gathering place in the home. It is the space where you can entertain guests or relax with your family, where you watch TV or socialize over coffee. To meet all these needs, the furniture you choose for your living room must perform the double duty of impressing during entertaining occasions while also being comfortable for those casual nights at home. This selection of modern living room furniture meets this challenge easily with style that's at once clean, contemporary and laid back. Use the living room sofas, chairs, tables and storage furniture found here to create a highly desirable living area for your home.
Where Living Room Furniture Works Best
It's best to approach the placement of your living room furniture in layers. The foundation furniture pieces are the larger ones including sofas, sleeper sofas or a sectional sofa. Due to their size, these seating options will be the foundation of the space and will help dictate how the rest of the room is decorated. Once these furniture pieces are in place, complete a conversation area with supplemental arm and side chairs, as well as complementing side tables. Side tables or any kind of accent table is a welcomed choice for living rooms for their ability to highlight a certain area of the room while also serving a completely functional purpose. What is a living room without a well-designed coffee table anyway? Sit back and relax in a modern lounge chair or turn to a rocking chair if you prefer your seating on a swivel. And in order to keep your living room's layout looking sleek, neat and tidy at all times, shelves and media storage are a necessity. With the right mix of functional and fashionable furniture, you'll bring your living room's look and feel full circle.

Choosing the Best Living Room Furniture
Before you decide to redecorate your living room or furnish it with new furniture, you'll need to picture where each new furniture piece will fit in your design and choose the most appropriate sizes. Larger living rooms and great rooms are best fitted with sectional sofas, while more compact living areas will benefit from a smaller sofa or a couple of lounge chairs. Likewise, you'll want to carefully decide where your coffee and end tables will be placed to choose the best shapes and sizes. With sizes of furniture in mind, you can then refine your options by finishes, colors and materials - wood, metal, plastic, etc. - to select the furniture styles that will fit in with your home's existing decor. You can often find example color swatches too, helping you to make the best decision for your home's living room.
You'll also want to accessorize your contemporary furniture pieces for a truly cohesive design statement. In front of sofas and underneath coffee tables, rugs provide a soft and colorful foundation you'll be sure to appreciate. Floral patterns, geometric shapes and colorful options will ensure your floors are covered in comfort and style. Look to decorative accessories like vases, bowls, decorative figurines, candles and more to truly personalize the space to your taste. And lastly, consider revamping your living room lighting to match the modern character of your new furniture.
