Nice to have, though in choosing your living room furniture you will have some essential components and others which can be more decorative, like display items that are not essential. For sofas, example and chairs may be regarded as essential, while coffee tables and curio cabinets are functional, but not required for a living room. Small living spaces can be furnished simply with seating and perhaps a small coffee table or two, while larger equivalents will contain more expansive selections of furniture. Here, we shall discuss the essentials, and make some comment of the decorative items that might be of use in smaller to medium size living spaces. Naturally your choice depends upon your individual preferences, and if you love antiques or figurines a curio cabinet can be of more interest than the usual cocktail cabinet or bookcase.
