Choosing living room furniture

Decorating your home should be a fun, stress-free and worry-free experience. You want beautiful, quality classic pieces that stand the test of time, travel or wear. Let’s face it, things are going to fall on them, spill over on them, and if you have a pet, they’ll want to snuggle up on the comfy couch as well.

Perhaps one of the best things about buying furniture is choosing the accessories and having the option of delivery. You can browse the stores online and in person to get a feel for what you’re going to buy, but then they deliver in a matter of days!

You can use these tips to decorate your entire living room. The only thing left would be to load up the bar cart and choose a few more accessories, and you’ve got a completely updated and modern living space that you can show off to everyone.

The Céni sofa

A plush Ceni sofa in the lagoon blue variant.

The article contains great furniture and we think this three seater is the perfect color. It is a Mid-Century Modern style sofa with unattached seat cushions and backrests. The solid walnut wood base sits low to the ground and supports the beautifully padded high density foam.

If the Lagoon Blue fabric doesn’t go well with your color scheme, there are five other wonderful colors to choose from. There is a bit of assembly required, but it only takes about 15 minutes once you’ve unpacked.

The Sven sofa

You can’t go wrong with the Sven sofa. You can customize it in so many different ways! First, choose between fabric, leather or velvet. Second, choose your color. We had a hard time choosing one ourselves. The velvet looks so mellow and inviting, but the chocolate leather version has such a lovely depth, and the tufted fabric with an open weave gives it that classic look and feel.

The back cushions and bolsters rest on the bench, supported by a wooden corner frame. Every now and then, just stuff the cushions to keep them soft and in shape. They even use Pirelli straps, which have been in use since the 1950s and have the right amount of support and stretch when pulled over the cabinet frame.

Foundstone Kaysen Block Coffee Table

A Kaysen Block wooden coffee table.

You really can’t find much more rustic or modern organic than this upcycled and reclaimed coffee table. It is not only a durable piece of furniture, it is also beautiful. Made from all natural teak wood, you can use it indoors or outdoors. Teak wood is naturally water resistant and maintenance is a snap. Because it is not made in the store, each table will have very different characteristics.

You can also place a glass on top of the table so you never have to worry about stains or damage to the wood. While normal wear and tear or a few nicks and dents will make any wood piece of furniture feel like it’s lived in and give it extra charm, this coffee table is sure to complement any decor.

Mara walnut coffee table

An elegant Mara walnut coffee table.

The Mara walnut coffee table is a classic design with clean lines and an elegant feel. The smooth marble slab and solid oak legs complement any living room decor perfectly. Meanwhile, the sealed marble has a thickness of 14mm and a compact size, making it an ideal piece for small spaces. Just be aware that since marble is all natural, the color tones, marbling, and texture of the surface will vary from table to table.

You can choose between an oak or walnut finish for the feet, although we believe that walnut pairs best with Italian Carrara marble. Be sure to use placemats and coasters to protect the surface. This table will also go great with solid wood tables.

Sand and stable side table Selah

A well-designed Selah End wooden table.

Speaking of solid wood tables, Sand & Stable has created one of the best sustainable tables on the market. This is an all natural solid wood table and none are alike; which means the knots in the wood will be different as will the grain, color and finish.

The table is perfectly sized to sit at the end of your couch or accent chair, or maybe even just sit in a corner with a pretty vase of flowers. Another teak wood product is handmade and designed with well balanced intertwined sticks. It is a natural finish but is also available in white.

Christopher Knight Home Naja End Table

Christopher Knight knows end tables, with some of the most unique pieces on the market. The Naja end table is no exception. The table is shaped like a pick and is perfect for a Mid-Century Modern setting. Hevea is a tropical wood that respects the environment because it comes from rubber wood recovered from Pará from rubber plantations.

It’s a table smooth and sturdy enough to handle the heaviest book. Rubberwood makes great furniture because the latex is extracted and the remaining wood can be dried and sanded to a smooth finish. The grain texture is similar to that of oak, and the rubber rings are densely packed.

Modway TV cabinet

With added support from the tapered wooden legs, this Mid-Century Modern TV stand measures 71 inches long and 17.5 inches high. This multimedia console can hold up to a 78-inch TV. The walnut finish TV cabinet sports ribbed slatted doors with bottom hinges instead of the typical sliding door or closet style door. The adjustable shelves will hold all your electronics and keep the stiff rat nest out of sight. If you have a wall mounted TV, you can always use the table top as an additional shelf.

Mod armchair

Armchairs are a great accent piece as they can add a splash of color to any room and can be used as a reading nook for book lovers. This accent chair is available in four colors and its solid wood legs support the durable fabric. It features a solid back, deep seat, and curved armrests perfect for lounging and reading a book. Sitting at nearly 3.5 feet, this chair won’t take up much space, but it will fill a room with class and style.

Shinola Parker wooden table lamp

The Shinola Parker Wood table lamp is an exclusive collaboration between Shinola and Crate & Barrel. The base of this lamp is solid white oak and paired with a woven cotton canvas shade that looks great on either end of your sofa. You can see the grain of the oak in the base and you’ll appreciate the mix of natural materials and the way it’s all put together. The white cotton lampshade is a classic basket weave design made from cotton bands. There is also a beige leather shade made from tanned leather straps.

Burrow Index Wall Shelf

These complete wall mounted bookcase shelves allow you to choose the layout you want. Available in an oak, walnut or white finish, these shelves mount securely to the wall and can hold just about anything. Think of them as modular shelving. You can buy them in units of 1 to 5 and they will fit any configuration imaginable.

Maybe you want an entire wall filled with shelves where you can display the collection of books you have stored. Solid wood construction fits any decor with little tweaks here and there. You can place them not only in the living room, but also in the dining room, home office or bedroom.
