How to furnish your living room?
Nail your style for a consistent home design
The style of your living room will often determine the expectations for the rest of your home, so the next step is to define the design style you want to achieve. For example, if you love the look of low sofas, tapered legs, and geometric shapes, you’ll love the mid-century modern style. Or, if you prefer aged furniture, vintage decor, and floral designs, shabby chic style is your cup of tea. Finally, you will relax in the simplicity of contemporary style for the modern minimalist who loves clean lines, practical furniture, and clean design.

Maximize natural light with sheer curtains that gently diffuse sunlight. Table and floor lamps are a great way to emphasize your design style by adding functional light to your room, so don’t be afraid to be bold with your lamp choices. Lamps are also a way to incorporate secondary color touches into your living room design.
