One furniture company offers an 88 inch long 3-cushion reclining sofa in brown leather. This is a magnificent reclining sofa and likely offered at a magnificent price, but price is irrelevant to our discussion. This would appear to suit any living room in any home in the USA. But is it? If the rest of your living room furniture was in black leather, would you feel comfortable with a new brown leather sofa?
Seating furniture is the most striking component of any living room. However, instead of going for a huge and bulky sofa set, get loveseats, ottomans and lounge chairs. A mix and match of these pieces not only looks unique, attractive and minimalistic, it also consumes lesser space and provides diverse sitting options. Whites, beiges, greys and blacks are the ideal colours for seating furniture. Throw a splash of colour using lots of cushions.
When opting for a traditional décor it is advisable to select furniture that represents many styles and eras, from Chippendale to Queen Anne and Sheraton to Victorian. Small touches of Oriental influences also look very attractive in this setting. Painted landscapes, a Queen Anne table or lampshade or a Chippendale highboy will immediately give your living room a traditional touch.
A good sofa is high on the list of essentials. After a hard day at work you often cannot beat just throwing open the door and collapsing in front of the TV to catch up on your favourite programmes. Or perhaps you prefer to listen to music or even just flop around and do nothing. Whatever your choice, you need a comfortable sofa as a key foundation in your design. Be careful with the size and shape - if it is too large it will simply take up too much space and dominate the room, and if it is too small you may not be able to fit as many people on it as you would like to.
