Overall Living Room Decor

Multifunctional design means never having to choose between form and function. Your living room layout should go with the flow amidst the frantic pace of today’s lifestyles.

  • Even in a screen-saturated world, nothing will ever replace the joy of connecting in person. A graceful sofa or stylish sectional creates an inviting ambiance for catching up with out-of-towners or spending a little quality time with family.
  • Fill out your seating area with comfortable accent chairs around a sleek coffee table. A few movable pieces let you re-shape your arrangement as the conversation unfolds.
  • If you have enough room, create multiple seating spaces by arranging additional chairs around a cozy ottoman.
  • Furnishings with built-in storage compartments offer a convenient place for extra books, bags, blankets or throw pillows.
  • A comfy recliner next to a stunning floor lamp makes the perfect spot for getting lost in your favorite novel.
  • Place a lovely side table and chair along one wall for a no-stress workspace when you need to catch up on a little adulting.

Shapes and Colors

Set the tone for lively conversation and quiet reflection with living room styles that exude a relaxed atmosphere.

  • Want to soften things up a bit? Opt for curved lines and gentle angles over sharp corners. 
  • Pair the smoother shapes of current furniture designs with warm hues like pale pink or blush. 
  • Want something a little more dramatic? Select rich jewel tones like ruby red, sapphire blue or emerald green. Anchor your decor with a smart “statement” piece in a bold color, and balance with complementary neutrals for a unified look. 

Personal Accents

Your living room is uniquely yours and no one else’s. It’s a special place for displaying sentimental photos or showing off that prized collection. 

Always look for furnishings that infuse the best designs with your own personality. 

  • Mix and match textures, colors and patterns for a one-of-a-kind decor. Energetic stripes, geometric shapes and elegant florals are among the most popular.
  • Not seeing what you want on the showroom floor? No problem! Our design team at Lifestyles Furniture will tailor your furniture to fit your needs, with hundreds of samples to choose from. 
  • Pull the look together with a fabulous area rug in a range of sizes, shapes and patterns.
