In fact, you don't even have to utilize a traditional table as part of your living room. If you love antiquing, you can get a period steamer trunk or old suitcases and press them into service as part of your living room as tables. Should you prefer a period look with no often musty smell of period pieces, it is possible to go instead having a reproduction trunk or set of suitcases. Many manufacturers sell these, both in traditional furniture stores and online. Having said that, you can choose to add a fresh new look to your stuffy looking living room area by going with a theme, such as the African savannah, jungle, animal prints, travel, nautical - the list is endless. It's easy currently to find pieces that fit nearly any theme imaginable and a cohesive, overarching theme can actually tie a room together while making it look fresh and welcoming.
