Before making your decision and simply purchasing something that catches your eye, you should first decide what theme you would like for your room: a modern, antique or traditional colonial style for example? Then check out what is available online in the form of living room furniture sets that match your theme. Make sure your set is cheaper than buying the items individually - that is usually the case, and sometimes you may be able to haggle and negotiate a lower price.
Traditional American furniture design is characterized by solid wood in natural shades, with upholstery, furnishings and décor to match. Modern living room furniture tends to be associated with clean lines, whites and bright colors put together to offer a sensation of space with colorful accents intruding as focal points.
Thats the artistic view. Many prefer to describe the modern living room as being bright, airy and interesting with colorful accents. Not much difference, then! In fact, much American furniture design does tend to focus a great deal on natural wood finishes, while UK, Scandinavian (aka IKEA!) and continental European designs appear to be more adventurous, making good use of accent colors and experimental shapes. Is this really true? Many would believe it to be somewhat unfair to American furniture designers, because they tend to cater for what Americans are seeking. However, how do you know what you want if you are continually exposed to the same old stuff?
However, irrespective of whether you prefer black and white or traditional earth colors, for a truly holistic approach to your living room furniture and furnishes you must also take the accessories and accent pieces into consideration. These include occasional pieces of furniture, rugs, lamps, candlesticks and even paintings and mirrors for your walls.
