Nice to have, though when deciding on your living room furniture you will have some essential components and others that happen to be more decorative, including display items that are not essential. For chairs, example and sofas can be regarded as essential, while coffee tables and curio cabinets are functional, but not essential for a living room. Small living spaces can be furnished only with seating and perhaps a compact coffee table or two, while larger equivalents will contain more expansive choices of furniture. Here, we shall discuss the essentials, and make some comment of the decorative items that might be of usage 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 could be of more interest than the usual cocktail cabinet or bookcase.
