Living Room Furniture Buying Guide

June 7, 2016

by Andrew Schneider Furniture Specialist

The living room is one of the most frequented rooms of your home, whether it's for family gatherings or quaint cocktail parties. Choosing furniture that highlights your preferred style and comfort level is important. Luckily, you have options when choosing living room sets, couches and coffee tables. From modern decor with sleek and chic appeal to traditional furnishings that boast your personal style, you can transform your lounging area to a place that is impressive and comfortable at the same time.


The Appeal of Leather Living Room Furniture Sets

The Appeal of Leather Living Room Furniture Sets

Leather furniture sets are ideal for creating a high-end look, but they're also a comfortable option for seating. If you prefer a prestigious look, adding a leather couch to the mix may be your solution for updating your living room decor. Opt for a long sofa, a comfortable chair with arm rests and a chaise that shows you can relax while still boasting a formal image.

The Sectional Solution

The Sectional Solution

For homeowners who enjoy entertaining, living room furniture sets with sectionals offer just what you need. Choose plush constructions in contemporary grey or white colors to boost the look of the room while also adding comfort for your visitors to watch the game or sit back and relax while sipping on a glass of wine. The ample seating provided by sectional sets accents the cozy setting you have created with rich-colored coffee tables that match your color scheme.

Relax and Recline

Relax and Recline

Your living room style is important, but why not combine function with form? Provide seating for your guests that allows them to relax and recline at the same time. Recliners are often a staple in living room furniture sets, and choosing a recliner that suits your needs is crucial. Opt for a sleek and modern chair with a soft fabric construction for ultimate comfort, and add in modern couches for additional seating. Go modern with white chairs and recliners, or add a formal look to your living room with chairs that feature a dark brown finish with wood handles and levers.

Storage That Offers Style

Storage That Offers Style

Coffee tables are essential when designing your living room decor. The practical unit serves as a storage area for magazines and accent pieces but also can serve as the centerpiece for your living room furniture set. Choose from end tables with a sleek metal construction and soft white and grey wood tops to match your modern couches or contemporary touches. You can also spruce up the look of your living room with accent tables that boast leather tops with drawers to place remotes, DVDs and other small electronic equipment.

The Ideal Spot for Your Entertainment Must-Haves

The Ideal Spot for Your Entertainment Must-Haves

The television is often the focal point in a living room, but you don't have to make the TV the most treasured piece. Instead, choose a wood cabinet or sleek entertainment center to conceal your electronics while putting the spotlight on your decor. Living room furniture can also include bookshelves and bookcases that host not only your television and electronics but also provide ample space for framed photos, plants and treasured trinkets. Choose from a maple or dark wood construction or show off a sleek arrangement of matching black shelving.

A Foot-Friendly Space

A Foot-Friendly Space

Equip your living room with resting spaces that allow your guests to kick their feet up, sit back and relax. Ottomans are a staple for living room decor and offer not only a space to rest your feet but also handy storage compartments to store blankets and supplies for your electronics. Choose from fabric constructions that boast a variety of colors to enhance your decor, or opt for an ottoman with a tufted style that features handmade weaves and intricate details.
