Coffee & End Tables – Finishing Touch to Your Living Room Furniture

Think of the days when humankind lived without too much furniture? Don’t you think they had fewer problems? Most probably they had bigger living areas – uncluttered and available? But think how inconvenient life would have been for them! No soft comfy furniture, no flat surfaces to eat from of no side tables like coffee or end tables for keeping stuff!

Over centuries, humankind has learned to appreciate good living and comfortable lodging. One of the most important aspects of comfortable homes is nice and sturdy furniture which makes life easier and more relaxed; things that would look trendy and beautiful and look aesthetic in the correct settings created to satisfy your personal desires.

Coffee and end tables – part of the occasional table sets – have become essential accessories and have become crucial part of home furniture – especially in the living room where we do the informal entertainment when visitors and guests come and where we relax watching some TV, reading books and listening to music.

End tables and coffee tables may not be the focus of the room, but they are certainly handy for keeping our snack plates, drink trays and glasses, iPods, IPads, remotes and of course newspapers and books. You can use them to hold a vase of fresh flowers or some beautiful looking curios or collectible you purchased from your last holiday!

With the wide amount of opportunities in choosing the exact coffee and end tables for your living room, the choice may be getting tougher and difficult for you. You need to focus on what kind of tables, in what style, in what material and in what size you can buy so that the end and coffee tables will blend most harmoniously with your other furniture.

Size is one of the most important aspects you must keep in mind. A coffee or end table should not be taller than the upholstered or sofa cushions – it should be preferably shorter. If you are keeping the coffee table at the center, you need at least two feet clearance space all around. Buy in a material and style that will blend beautifully with the existing living room décor.

Here are some images of beautiful looking coffee and end tables from A Brand New Look. Some are in antique finish and some with beautifully inlay work. All have storage space and finished exquisitely. Check what you like best?

Beautiful Sectionals Sofas And Couches – Essential Furniture for Living Room Decor

beautiful-sofas-in-black

Sofas, sectionals, couches or recliners – by any name – are essential part of living room furniture. If we glance through the online shops and local furniture shops, we are astounded by the variety and choice available for you to purchase. Comfort, colorful and cost-effective are the terms we think of when we look at them. But since when sofas are so easily available for all of us? Look at the old pictures depicting Greek and Roman fables. You can always see the rich and powerful people reclining on some kind of a couch. Though they look ornate and beautiful, upholstery was not prevalent at that time. The couches or recliners as we know them with batting can be traced to 16th century England and Germany where basic form of sofa with wooden frames and padding with covering were started.

Initially the primary use for fabrics and covering materials were more used for protecting the inmates from elements. But once proper kind of dwellings started coming up, fabrics and animal hides were used as covering for furniture also. Hair, feathers, down, sea-moss – all were used for padding and buttons were mostly used to keep the padding in place. Since 18/19th century, sofa as a long and low kind of comfortable seat with upholstery mostly with arms and back-support became very popular and much sought after by every household. They were as much in demand as the bedsteads and mattresses were. The name sofa came from Arabic word and gained more popularity than the names couches or davenports which were used in Europe/England.

Sewing machines contributed greatly to the beauty of upholstery details which were intricately done. When a furniture designer was also a decorator, he was called an ‘upholder’. Famous names in furniture world like George Hepplewhite and Thomas Chippendale all combined woodworking with upholstery and created masterpieces that are still as popular and come at a premium.

Though only wood and metal were used for frames, steel, plastic and hard and particle boards gained popularity as raw material for making lighter and newer patterns of sofa. And now foam and polyester fiber, microfibers – all are popular for use as batting. All types of leather, faux leather, natural, blended and synthetic fabrics are used as covering. Here are some stunningly beautiful sofas and sectionals from Pianca. I am sure you would love to have some sofas like these to add ambiance to your living room decor?

It is very important to check for slim look and clean-cut lines when you are looking for display shelves for the living room.

A display shelf can double as a bookcase or as CD rack as well. Today there are a variety of book and display shelves available in the market. Floating shelves, wall-mounted, innovative and unique designs – you are spoilt for choice for patterns and materials. Here are some beautiful looking shelves from Alivar. Look at the classic lines and clean spare look of the shelves. They look so simple and graceful yet stunningly beautiful and add to the ambience and elegance of the room greatly.
