Curio and display cabinets, entertainment units and bookcases are typical examples of display and storage units that you will find in many living rooms that can accommodate them. Others include secretaires, ottomans with hinge lis, and cocktail cabinets for drinks and glasses. Entertainment units are frequently installed as a wall unit, offering space for a wide flat screen TV, games speakers, consoles and various other items such as a hi-fi system and an iPod dock and speaker unit. When picking your living room furniture, it is important that you manage the essentials first before looking at the decorative or non-essential items. There seems little point in purchasing a beautiful entertainment unit, then finding you have no room for your preferred seating. Sectionals can often make best use of small space, but fundamentally you should decide what seating you require and then work around that.
