Theater style love seats and couches are also extremely popular. They are popular because they have the feel and comfort that chairs offer, but they can seat a lot of people. Basically, they are a few different recliners that are all connected together. Between each recliner is a section that has two cup holders and a storage bin to put magazines or snacks in. These couches can be reclined with levers or they could also be reclined with the simple press of a button as some have electric motors. They are a bit expensive, though, as the cheaper models sell for about $2,000 and the expensive ones sell for $4,000 or more.
Living room chairs should be lightweight and easy to move since they may need to be shifted to accommodate various activities and even differences in lighting at various times during the day. It may not be a great idea to use heavy varieties of wood like oak or rosewood. The color scheme should blend well with the colors of the couch, wall paint and other elements of soft furnishings like curtains and wall treatments. Chairs made of painted wood fit the bill, in terms of the ease with which these chairs can be blended into the decor, coupled with adequate strength.
Speaking of timeless styles, wingback chairs, slipper chairs or leather chairs, with or without arms, can make beautiful accent pieces to your living room and supply additional seating at the same time. Place one on either side of your couch or loveseat, or offset one extra chair with a plant or lamp on the other side.
A sofa is an integral piece of living room furniture and is the focal point in any living area. It is usually chosen because of its soft and extremely comfortable cushions. This furniture can easily seat two to four people. There are sofas that feature armrests on either ends while others do not. Some have luxurious leather covering and some have cotton fabric. A sofa is great because it has a wider seat depth and can easily be converted to a single person bed should a visitor want to stay the night.
Aside from sofa, homeowners should also consider using several smaller chairs. The smaller chairs can be placed in front or on the sides of the sofa to create a more intimate setting. This set up promotes an easy atmosphere for conversation. The household can utilize and put wing chairs or club chairs, loveseats, ottomans and even bean bag chairs.
