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?
There are many other accent pieces that can be use to complement your living room furniture, and also add to the look of the room, or even its theme if you prefer to have themed rooms. Ignoring the obvious Egyptian statues, African masks and Native American artifacts for the more obvious themes, those preferring more modern themes can use chess sets and tables, figurines, lamps, trays and boxes to accentuate the decor of their living rooms.
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.

It is very easy to do this, particularly when you consider the wide range of living room furniture available today. Lets have a brief look at the range of furniture you can use in your lounge.
