Now think about what you actually need, and what you might desire to have space for - in other words, separate your needs from your wants. For instance, you might need space for a sofa, TV and music, lighting and a coffee table and sideboard. You might want space for toys and books, DVD and CD storage and your hi-fi speakers. What you can actually fit into your room will depend on the size and shape of the space you have. You may have to be ruthless in your choices - it is important to obtain a balance between the areas taken up with furniture and open areas you use for access around the room.
The point being made here is that when choosing living room sofas for your lounge, or any other room for that matter, you have to have an eye for design and what would go well with your existing furniture. People purchase dining room sets and sets of bedroom furniture, but not living room sets as such. So keep that in mind as you read, and particularly when the time comes for you to purchase a new living room sofa or even a chair.
A natural wood finish helps to keep the living space look open and spacious, and their solid construction will resist many knocks. Solid oak, and indeed solid pine, can be easily looked after - minor scratches and marks are easily sanded away and a light application of oil or wax will bring out the natural warmth and give the furniture a really mellow appeal. Cupboard space like this will give you plenty of room to tidy away toys, DVDs and books.
Candles and lanterns, which were once thought of as unnecessary home accessories, are now considered to be the primary dwellers of modern homes. Lanterns with antique finish, colourful Moroccan lanterns and scented candles placed in sophisticated candleholders make a room look and feel pleasant and peaceful. You can hang the lanterns from the ceiling in the centre of the room over the centre table like a chandelier or place them in the corner of the living room or on the sides. If the rest of the living room contains neutral colours, it’s best to go with bright coloured lanterns and candles.
