Your living room need not be furnished and decorated to a specific historical period, but should at least appear to be matched and perhaps follow a certain theme in terms of color or period. For example, Amish furniture looks best in a plainly decorated room, and would look out of place with lush drapes, heavily patterned carpets or event brightly painted walls. If you decide on mission furniture, then wooden flooring would look good, with plain or lightly patterned rugs to absorb sound and prevent that reverberation or booming you can get with all wood flooring and plain walls. Curtains or drapes, wallpaper and rugs absorb sound waves, so that you cant hear everyone talking anywhere in the house.
With the many furniture styles to choose from, furniture shopping can be a headache. But if you have an overall idea of the look that you want to achieve, shopping will be a breeze. If you want to achieve a sophisticated look for your living room, you may want modern or contemporary furniture. If the general style of your home is antique, the best option would be antique style furniture, usually made from dark wood. For the more relaxed look, you can opt for resort style furniture. There are actually a lot of styles to choose from. We suggest that you do your research first as to your design style in order to get an idea of the type of furniture that suits your taste and your living space. Also, before you buy anything, you need to consider the size of the room you are designing.
Once you have a rough idea of the colors involved, and the general period of furniture you will require, you can select that furniture from the large selection available from American furniture companies such as Stickley, Southwood, Sherrill and Simply Amish.Make your selection of furniture, choose rugs to suit your overall decorative theme, and then the lamps, mirrors and other accent pieces. You can put all of these together to create a fabulous living room. A holistic approach to living room furniture involves more than just furnishing, but also an appreciation of accessories an accent pieces such as occasional tables, curio cabinets, rugs and more - but it is well worth the work involved.
