The American Traditional style of furniture was influenced by English and French styles. With time it evolved into a unique American style. The traditional living room furniture includes styles such as the clean and simple lines of Shaker furniture, the simplicity of the Mission style and similar styles from artisans in the Southwest and all corners of the country. American traditional style is thus a blend of several styles and it takes the best that every different style has to offer.
Modern living room furniture would be absolutely incomplete without a pretty centre table. Do not opt for a huge and heavy wooden table; instead go for a small glass table, big enough to carry trays of food and drinks. Wooden coffee tables also make for great options but make sure you team them up with nice table runners as you don’t want the food or snacks to damage your table. A Christmas table runner can add the much needed pop of colour. You can place a lovely vase in the centre of the table to give it a more sophisticated look.
The trend in modern living rooms is for a more open design - you need to look carefully at the quality of natural light in the room and how to supplement it with additional light sources. Wooden furniture with a natural finish is a good choice as it tends to lend a light and airy aspect to the furnishings, as well as giving some much-needed warmth and character.
Avoid using heavily printed upholstery for your seating and sofa. Use light, monochromatic colors that match. Avoid mix and match of colors as well, as it makes the room look smaller and tight.
