Curio and display cabinets, entertainment units and bookcases are common examples of storage and display units that you will find in many living spaces that can accommodate them. Others include secretaires, ottomans with hinge lis, and cocktail cabinets for glasses and drinks. Entertainment units are frequently installed as a wall unit, offering space for the wide flat screen TV, games consoles, speakers and various other things such as a hi-fi system as well as an iPod dock and speaker unit. In choosing 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 reason for purchasing a beautiful entertainment unit, then finding you have no room for your preferred seating. Sectionals can often make best use of only a little space, but fundamentally it is best to decide what seating you require and then work around that.
