There are some ideas that we just shouldn't live without in the living room. Somewhere comfy to sit down, things to brighten the place up, somewhere to store and display things beautifully and much more. But there are a million and one different way in which one can present there living room and we can't provide you with all of them (unfortunately), however we have a few tips that will help you on your way to a new design.

Coffee tables

No sitting room is complete without a coffee table. Big or small, cluttered or clean, the coffee table can be a very colourful aspect to your lounge. Reading a paper in the morning or chatting with your friends, a good coffee table that suits your style is a must have. Look at this colourful design from Bespoke: playful and simplistic tones that could be both for children or a kitschy interior lay out.

Putting a vase like this in any corner will help to bring the place to life. Display branches, reeds, flowers, grass or whatever you fancy inside; to play off your mood in the living room.

Sofas

The sofa is perhaps the most important item in the living room: a symbol of comfort and hope whilst at work… . But with such a gigantic selection of possibilities out there, how do you choose one!?!?! It's a question that had no easy answer. However, never fear, we have quite a large catalogue sofas and armchairs for you to have a look at.

Living room storage ideas

You need a place to display your books, DVDs and music. Why not make that place a feature of its own? A good, clean and fun design, such as this one, will help to bring more energy into the room design. Relatively inexpensive and effective to display your books and flowers on, a storage unit like this shouldn't be overlooked.

Living room lighting

Your choice in lighting will completely change how you view things in the lounge; so choose carefully! We love this design though, from Luz Difusion, it's a wild but elegant light shade and think it would look good in many homes. Have a look at our lighting section for more tips.
