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?
A lot depends on the size of your living room. If you are short of space then a sectional sofa is likely better, because you can then use a corner of the room to connect two longer pieces of sofa by means of a wedge. That is making the best use of the space available to you, and avoids cluttering up a small room with large pieces of furniture in the middle of the floor.
In order to a take a holistic approach to living room furniture and furnishings, you should first decide on the fundamental decorative style you wish to adopt, and then choose the most appropriate color scheme and wall decor that fits in with your decision. Once you have a rough idea of the colors involved, and the general period of furniture you will require, you can select that furniture from the large selection available from American furniture companies such as Stickley, Southwood, Sherrill and Simply Amish.
Alternatively, if you prefer more color in your rooms, a gorgeous reproduction Sheraton settee in burgundy and cream would look fabulous in a sitting room decorated in an old English style, with deep red and ecru flocked wallpaper and a beautiful pure wool off-white carpet. You can also purchase separate arm chairs and sofas with this living room furniture from the Southwood Furniture Corporation.
