From early times in the United States (U.S.), up to the 1970s, much family activity centered on the living room of a home. Also known as \"the receiving room,\" home makers took guests there as soon as they entered the home. This room contained the best seating and furnishings. There, the draperies hung finely about the windows. A small piano might reside in the room. A vase with fresh-cut flowers and a bowl filled with nuts or mints might rest on the coffee table. \"Eat something while I fetch coffee from the kitchen,\" a home maker might say to guests.
The living room furniture of any home is a combination of style, comfort, storage and passion driven furniture; therefore, each piece is a symbolism of you identity and your taste for life. Your selection of the living room furniture should be based on these four major factors - Requirement, Space in the room, Style and Budget. Deciding the priority of these four factors in advance and proceeding accordingly will result in a perfect purchase of a sophisticated yet classy living room furniture.
Accents & Highlighting- Draw attention to a fireplace with overhead recessed lighting or track lighting fixtures. Alternatively, wall sconces on either side of the mantel will both emphasize the fireplace and offer more lighting for the entire room. An up light situated behind the object can highlight pedestals, figurines or floor plants. Add additional layers with multi-tiered hanging lamps or wall/ceiling wash lights. Accent lights placed in alcoves, corners or closed in spaces will accentuate a specific area or piece and give the room a larger appearance.
