The article below will focus on exciting living room furniture ideas for the year 2020. Whether it’s that comfy ass recliner or that beautiful chaise; we will make sure to discuss an array of concepts and themes to make your living room space the epitome of comfort, style and grace!
The ideal chairs for your living room space
What would be the perfect chair for your living room? A question that beholds so many options and opinions! We decided that we would suggest the best living room chairs that are not only trending but top rated as well.
Recliners and accent chairs are a hype these days; their sophisticated elegance and top notch comfort is what makes them a people’s popular choice. Accent chairs are towards an inclination of style; their foremost purpose is to give your living room an exquisite pop. Recliners, as we all know, cater to all our postural needs. They even consume a larger space but prove to be very relaxing, especially when you just got done with a long day at work.
Club chairs are one of those big fat leather or faux leather chairs that you would just sink into! The upholstery is variable, but glossy leather still remains a tell-tale feature!
Lounge chairs come in a vast variety of design variations, the best one would probably be the one with an extended shank that allows leg and foot rest. With its s-shaped curve, it gives quite a contemporary look.
Wingback chairs, arm chairs, slipper chairs and barrel chairs are cute but very common. They are almost an outdated trend, however, some living room furniture themes are brought to shine with their presence.
We love rocking chairs! A nice evening with a good old book on a rocking chair makes everything delightful. They come in numerous designs and shapes, the scope of which is beyond the reach of this article!
Living room chairs can also be classified according to their upholstery. Some people would have a preference for leather where as some would lean towards plain old fabric. Velvet and microfiber are amongst the other upholsterers that people commonly opt for in living room chairs.
The art of selecting a living room chaise lounge!
For those of you who are unaware of the beauty and grace of chaise lounges, below is a description just for you!
These are elongated chairs that are modified with down-tufted buttons and plush linens. They can act as a conventional recliner with their single ended back rest. Perfect for evening time snoozes or reading a book with your legs at rest.
Some of the chaise lounges we came across were modernized with the exclusion of the down tufted buttons.
With respect to design we found two main variations: one in which the bottom end foot of the chaise curves to touch the ground and the other where it curves upwards or remains straight to become suspended in air with the help of its framework beneath.
Most of them have a rather sizzling curve to its body which gives it a very luxurious look. The addition of velvet would of course add to its opulence.
While some of them do come with a one sided arm rest, the others minus that feature. The length of the chaise lounge also remains a varied component, meaning that not all chaise lounges will support the legs and feet!
Colors that we mostly came across and those that stood out as well, were the velvety monotones. A pop of color can be given if the theme of your living room is more towards vibrancies and vividness. The effect of a monotone is usually impactful when the entire living room is brain stormed under a single master color that in turn affects all the living room furniture that is to be selected.
Living room futons; a simplistic but everlasting trend!
Living room futons are unsung heroes! Most of them serve as sofa cum beds as well, many of the reviewers we came across also claim to use living room futons for a nice nap time. Why? Because they’re lengthy!
Futons are very minimalistic, it is a tedious task to make them look up lifted and eye catching in our opinion. The ones that are high end do stand out on their own but a traditional living room futon is just a plain old elongated sofa. If you are a style fanatic and crave for furniture items that need minimum up-dos, then you can skip this one.
However, those that are into the plucking out cushions and linens to decorate in their living rooms can most definitely style a basic living room futon into one that would steal glances.
Monotones are the key when choosing a living room futon, because they can contrast with your fancy curtains and sofas. Ladies and gentlemen, the key to dressing a plain old futon is all in the accessories. Take notes!
A guide to choosing the ultimate living room set!

A set of four would probably lend you some tossing pillows, a loveseat, a sofa and a chair. These sets are mostly configured to the size of an apartment and consume a lot of space.
A three piece living room set would come in with a loveseat and a chair whereas a two piece living room set would yield the same products. The lesser the pieces, the lesser the amount of seating available.

Below we will be going through different sofas and couches, each unique to their own features.
Living room sofas and couches are elaborated derivations of the versions of living room chairs we discussed above. Let us discuss about how each sofa or couch differs from one another.
Living room sofas and couches mostly vary when it comes to their arms. Yes, arms! Arms are the most varied component of a sofa or couch. A few of them are briefed down below:
Pillow top arms
Sofas and couches also encompass a large range of themes and concepts. Modern contemporary themes impart a classical chic touch similar to that of executive offices, but with a touch of homey vibes. Traditional sofas are the ones that have a historical background affiliated with it and we’ve been seeing them since the time of our forefathers. Bohemian and eclectic ones have a fun cultural pop to them. Others include French country, rustic, coastal, glam and transitional.
While some living room sofas and couches are solid monotone, others also involve a medley of prints and patterns.
A few prints and patterns for sofas are enlisted below:
Tropical beachy prints

Some sofas come with removable cushions whereas some have them embedded in the framework.
Interesting features related to the living room sofas and couches would be that some are even pet friendly! Designed to resist their scratches and habits. This would be a great option for all pet lovers whose companions are with them side by side.
Other features would be related to their multi positional ability. An adjustable headrest or a reclining feature is indeed included in some of the high end sofas that we came across.
Some have ottomans included whereas others are tufted.
Slipcovered and skirted living room couches and sofas have the advantage of being removable. They can easily be washed or dry cleaned after intervals of time so that they can look as good as new. If your children spilled that meatball sauce all over your linens then all you need to do is detach them and send them in for a good wash.
A few living room sofas and couches have storage. Which means you can store all your scarves, belts, caps or any other item that you need when you are in a hurry to leave the house. Just pop that lid open and take out anything you require in a quick jiffy! Cushion backs are a feature of some but not all sofas. An insertion of comfortable fabric or foam on the upper level of a sofa will give you a good back rest so that you can easily sit down with your laptop and submit that overdue assignment with your back problems taken care of.

A living room table is the finishing touch for an elegantly decorated living room. This furniture article too has a lot of designs within its midst and we will be imploring a few praise worthy designs with you.
Coffee tables are a very common option for most style fanatics. That’s because they are so chic and give almost any living room an exquisite touch. Coffee tables are low set tables that come in manufactured wood, Oakwood or metal. Some have a wooden top reinforced with metal legs and panels. Nowadays, a Nordic style of coffee tables is seen with a hexagonal metal base framework topped with a marble surface.
A very new and interesting design for a coffee table we have seen is that with a wicker trunk as a base and an espresso Oakwood surface on top.
If you are into ottoman furniture then ottoman coffee tables are for you. With their down-tufted buttoned design serving as the surface table reinforced with Lennon pine planks.
Glass coffee tables are known to impart an executive look. Some designs involve a circular glass cut whereas others go for a rectangular glass shape. Often they are rimmed with a collar of metal, which renders them sturdy and strengthened. Most of them are two tier coffee tables.
Barn coffee tables involve mostly a cuboid shape in gray wood. They are then further divided into three longitudinal columns, each serving as a storage compartment. One of the compartments may have a cabinet. The side panels are reinforced with an X shape on either end.
Nesting basket tables are new in the market. A very cute yet contemporary design it is. With its wooden circular top reinforced with a nesting basket as a base. Since the wooden top is removable, the nesting basket can be used to stack up your books or any other accessory you deem necessary. A very handy storage compartment that is visible at all times.

Completely clear acrylic tables are unheard of. Every component of the table is made of clear acrylic, whether it’s the panels, the legs or the top. They would look good in a very well lighted room to offer subtle reflections. Natural light would impart the best impression. However, these tables do not usually give a strong statement for style.
Nest tables are another option to be used as a living room table. They come in sets of twos or threes with a lot of variation in shapes and legs. The legs can be hexagonal, v shaped, circular, semi circular and more! Tabletops can comprise of Oakwood, marble, faux leather and even colored acrylic.
