Nice to have, though when choosing your living room furniture you will have some essential others and components which might be more decorative, including display items that are not essential. For example, chairs and sofas is often regarded as essential, while coffee tables and curio cabinets are functional, but not important for a living room. Small living spaces can be furnished simply with seating and perhaps a smaller 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 useful in smaller to medium size living spaces. Naturally your choice will depend upon your individual preferences, and if you love antiques or figurines a curio cabinet might be of more interest over a cocktail cabinet or bookcase.
