Compact Console Tables for Living Room Furniture

When you imagine a well- laid out living room, along with comfy and elegant sofa sets and sectionals you need to picture end tables also – all kinds of end tables like sofa end table, coffee table, side table and console table. The coffee table may be the star of the show – sitting in the center of the room and being the focus; but the other tables are also equally useful and equally important.

Console tables are long, narrow and a little taller than other tables. Console tables are essentially functional furniture – serving as display tables, or flat surfaces where you can keep quite a lot of stuff handy. Console tables are essential in the living room, in the dining area and in the foyer area as well. They are useful but stay out of way – always against the wall so every room can be better with one console table.

Many a time, console tables are themselves ornamental adding to the beauty of the corner where they are accommodated. They have crafted details like scroll work if they are made of metal; carving details if they are made of wood. They can be shaped more artistically than any other end-tables and create a focus area of attention by their beauty and distinct looks.

Console tables can be free-standing or wall supported. Free standing tables are naturally full tables with four legs and stable without any wall support. They can be made of wood or metal and with work details in the legs or full frame itself. They may have a lower shelf where you can keep books etc and sometimes, have small drawers to keep keys etc.

If the console tables are wall supported, they may have the front two legs and have the back portion supported at the wall. Some tables may have a single pedestal-like base and some may have three legs – one at the front and three at the back. Console tops can be oval or rectangular. Sometimes they are quadrants of circles – a segment – looking very pretty.

Here you can see some images of pretty looking console tables from Chelini – an Italian furniture designer firm who create really beautiful and exquisite furniture. These console tables have very beautiful details like scroll work, carved legs and other details. Hope you will like to have some console tables like these at your home?

Many a time, wall colour can make a lot of difference to the ambience of the room. Getting a warm colour or a light pastel shade can be a good background for all your furniture and furnishing. Light cream or beige colour walls can make a nice backdrop for hardwood furniture especially if your sofa set pieces have a finish of glossy dark mahogany or rosewood stain.

With Tailored Looking Sofa and Toss Pillows

If you like to make a quick splash of colour on the walls – to change the focus from some sober shades of walls like gray, or dull cream, or off white etc, it is best to get on one wall some wall posters or wall decals. Having a wall poster or a wall decal or even putting up wall paper in a contrast shade brings a splash of colour to the living room.

Leather Chairs For Living Room Designs


Leather is one of the most favoured natural products that are used as upholstery for well-crafted furniture. Good quality leather gives a luxurious feel to the furniture, making a style statement of your home adding comfort to looks. And with proper care, leather improves with age, adding allure to the look and enhancing the value of the furniture.

Leather is from skins of animals – a breathing material that is very versatile and quite durable. There are a number of types and grades of leather available – right from the type which has a kind of rustic look and develops a patina that can look really characteristic and charming if maintained well. These are the genuine leather which is greatly fancied by the discerning designers.

Most of the leather that are used for car seats is the kind called corrected leather – which is stained for colour and has a surface coating that does not show the imperfections in the leather. These may cost a little less. But they have been treated. These are resistant to stains and spills. They stay supple and stay in shape despite heave and hardy usage.

But it is always wise to go a reputed furniture store or take the advice of your interior decorator as sometimes discount leather items may not be of real leather at all. There are so many leather look-alikes available in the market, but unlike genuine leather which can be cool in heat of summer and warm when it is cold outside, these are always cold and kind of sticky.

With its unique colour variances and distinct markings, leather upholstered sofa set can be the focus of your living room bring a touch of distinction to your décor. Actually good quality leather needs low maintenance and blends very well with all kind of décor. A clear glass coffee table can look extremely elegant when paired with leather sofas.

Here are some beautiful sofas from Hancock & Moore. Made with high-quality leather, they can add beauty and distinction to your home. All sofa sets are excellently crafted and looking great sofa sets. Button tufted patterned design adds to the beauty. The camel back style looks very elegant as well as the coffee brown two-seater.

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?

Attractive Accent Chairs For Home Ambiance

Making the living room attractive is an exciting part of home décor. It can be a bit challenging to our imagination to select the most attractive additions at a most reasonable budget. As living room is a high traffic zone, it needs good solid furniture that will be sturdy and attractive. If you have a small home and a growing family, most of the waking hours will be spent at living room. It can be an all-purpose room – all day to day activities done here only.

Comfortable seating is the most important need of living room décor. Having a three-piece sofa set will be the basic need. But just that will not even be sufficient for your own family needs. We will need additional seating – good and attractive looking additional seating. These can be loveseats, loungers, sectionals and ottomans along with a day bed.

Having an attractive accent chair is a good way to bring a fresh addition to your home and your home furniture style. Whatever is the original style of your living room, bringing in a different style accent chair will make it charmingly eclectic and challengingly different; different in style, different in material, different in upholstery and different in colour and finish.

Think of having a traditional solid wood three piece sofa set with a nice coffee table in your living room. Bring a nice plush-looking accent chair upholstered in shiny silk with an asymmetrical back and this will completely change the focus of the room. Instead of the solid wood traditional sofa set, everybody’s eyes will pop on this accent chair only as soon as they enter the living room. It will be the new focal point of the room and you can actually arrange other furniture around this accent chair for a different look altogether.

You can bring a love seat – a twin sofa, a single club chair, or a straight backed club chair – any kind of chair as an accent chair to add to the living room. If it is a single sofa or a chair, you can have two of them for balance. But if it is a twin seat – like a loveseat or a double seat sofa – a single piece will do.

Great Looking Shelves for Your Living Room

Display shelves are most useful accessories for your living room furniture. A nice way of creating a focus in your living room can be with a good book shelf. A book shelf can be a display shelf and a book shelf. Of course music CDs and all your game CDs also many a time find a place in the book shelves. So finding a beautiful looking bookshelf is the first step.

Book shelves can come in many types and made of various materials. If your home is small or you are having a studio apartment, a large book case may make the living room too crowded and cluttered. In that case, you can use wall mounted book shelves which are off the ground and so will not hog floor space which may be at a premium.

And another idea for saving space is that you can use floating shelves as book shelves – not just one book shelf but 3-4 shelves aesthetically arranged one below the other or in some other designs. These shelves can be wooden or better glass or Plexiglas, toughened glass or acrylic shelves which will add to the ambience of your living room.

Instead of traditional looking shelves, there are some shelves innovatively and interestingly shaped. Some shelves look more like decorative items than like a storage accessories. When you are hard-pressed for space, a good idea will be to add vertical storage space rather than spreading it horizontally and take up more space.

Before you are finalizing on buying the book shelf, finalize where to keep the book shelf depending on the space available. Then decide what all the things you are going to arrange in the book shelf. That will help you in deciding what kind of lighting you can use near the book shelf. You may have to get special lighting depending on what things you are storing in the shelf

If you are going to keep the shelf as only purely for books, then you need to have a reading lamp arranged so that if you have a nice accent chair to sit and relax by reading the books you have stored in the book shelf. If you are using the shelf as a display shelf, you may need a task light to focus on the curios displayed there.
