Will you be like the Victorians and fill your room with so much furniture that there is barely space enough to walk round it? You might see a sofa with matching armchairs you must have, and then fall in love with a gorgeous French chez longue. Then you might see a beautifully hand-made secretaire that would look fabulous in your lounge,
There is more to living room furniture than just the seating of course. You will also have some cabinets that you will use for display, holding drinks and glasses and also perhaps a bookcase, or secretaire. These items tend to be set against the walls, while your seating tends to be located within the general room space. It can be difficult to visualize your choice of seating without having the cabinets to complicate matters.
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.
Make sure you purchase solid furniture that isnt going to break or become unstable through hard use, and the fabrics you choose are sensible and easily cleaned - also easily repaired if you have young children or pets. Do not purchase cheap just because you can buy more - its better to have one well-made high quality sofa than two made of matchwood and plastic.
