Living Room Essentials
Living Rooms are where some of the best memories will be created, and their designs can have a huge effect on a family’s mood. With more of us spending time at home right now, it’s so important to have spaces that the whole family can enjoy together! Join Interior Design Magazines and discover our 4 living room essentials.
Here are the five main pieces of living room furniture you’ll need to furnish your space and make it cozy. You don’t need all of these pieces, but they’re definitely all nice to have and serve a specific purpose!
The first living room essential you should nail down first is the sofa. As the largest piece of furniture in the room, the couch is paramount to setting the right tone of your space. Head to our sofa buying guide for detailed information on what to consider before buying a sofa for your space. Here is the IT sofa, the MUST HAVE.
Novak Sofa is a sofa that combines some details from mid-century style with a contemporary design vision.
COFFEE/ CENTRE TABLE
Next up, you should purchase a coffee table for your living room. The coffee table will hold your coffee in the morning, your food in the afternoon and your personal items throughout the day!
Lautner Center Table stands out for its curved edges, mixing earth-tone colors from the varnished walnut wood and polished brass. Its artisan quality and crafted work provide a striking centerpiece for your living room. It has a moody smoked glass on the top and a shelf at the base that offers additional storage.
When selecting an area rug, make sure that it extends under all the key pieces of furniture in the room. In a living room, for instance, all of the furniture should be on top of the rug. If this isn’t possible, it’s okay to have the front legs of major upholstered pieces on the rug and the back legs off. However, all the legs of smaller pieces should be on the rug.
With a pattern and texture similar to the weaving from the traditional Brazilian jute bags used for carrying and for the storage of coffee beans, this modern and neutral rug is made of botanic silk, with a soft presence and an even softer touch.
LAMPS OR ACCENT LIGHTING
Adding table or floor lamps to the sides of your sofa can offer targeted lighting when you want to read a book or magazine, for example.
The Espresso floor lamp, with an extremely minimal structure and a matching shade, is the perfect addition to your living room, entryway, or reading corner. The shade, made of silk, creates a bold design that is sized to balance its architectural form. As you can see, Espresso is a homage to the simple pleasures of life.
