Make your selection of furniture, choose rugs to suit your overall decorative theme, and then the lamps, mirrors and other accent pieces. You can put all of these together to create a fabulous living room. A holistic approach to living room furniture involves more than just furnishing, but also an appreciation of accessories an accent pieces such as occasional tables, curio cabinets, rugs and more - but it is well worth the work involved.
Taking the Holistic Approach to Living Room Furniture
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, and then...
Accents & Highlighting- Draw attention to a fireplace with overhead recessed lighting or track lighting fixtures. Alternatively, wall sconces on either side of the mantel will both emphasize the fireplace and offer more lighting for the entire room. An up light situated behind the object can highlight pedestals, figurines or floor plants. Add additional layers with multi-tiered hanging lamps or wall/ceiling wash lights. Accent lights placed in alcoves, corners or closed in spaces will accentuate a specific area or piece and give the room a larger appearance.
Finally, make sure you are using everything at your disposal to create the optimum living room lighting ambiance. Believe it or not, this includes the walls, rugs, curtains, and furniture too. Dark colors absorb your well-planned living room lighting options, swallowing most of its efficacy. Soft, bright shades, on the other hand, will help enhance the light. Stick to these tones when decorating your living room to create the ideal living, entertaining and relaxing area in your home.
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.
