The appropriately named living room is the space where any and everything happens. It’s where you put your feet up after a long day, have family game night, throw parties and swap stories. Your living room furniture needs to be up to the job. Sofas, chairs, coffee tables and media storage must all work together to support your lifestyle.
If you’re going for the more casual feel, find comfortable family room furniture that will help everyone feel welcome and relaxed. A big sectional and ottoman will provide plenty of space to stretch out — perfect for weekend lounging. For a more formal living room, try a few structured armchairs and a chaise, coupled with an elegant coffee or accent table. If movies and technology is your thing, shop for media storage furniture like TV stands and bookcases that neatly store and/or display your DVDs and electronics. Regardless of your room’s main purpose, it’s always smart to plan the layout before purchasing any big or small living room furniture to make sure you’re using the space to its full potential.
