Smaller area rugs are usually 2’X3’, 3’X5’ and 4’X6’ in size, they can be used to decorate our living room by itself or put a piece of lovely furniture on top of the rug. Whereas larger area rugs are usually 6’X9’, 8’X10’, 9’X12’ and 12’X15’ in size, these area rugs can also be used to decorate a living room by itself or used to define an area in a house; we can place a set of sofa together with coffee tables on top of it, creating a beautiful focal point.
The point being made here is that when choosing living room sofas for your lounge, or any other room for that matter, you have to have an eye for design and what would go well with your existing furniture. People purchase dining room sets and sets of bedroom furniture, but not living room sets as such. So keep that in mind as you read, and particularly when the time comes for you to purchase a new living room sofa or even a chair.

Glass is a wonderful material for furniture because of its light reflecting properties. Every interior designer knows that mirrors reflect light around a room, making it appear more spacious, lighter and brighter. A similar effect can be achieved by using glass in your interior design – a glass table used for a small dining room will make the room appear bigger because it will reflect light, rather than absorb it.
Maybe a loveseat would be appropriate – if you are a single guy looking for something more intimate to offer than two single chairs. This is no more than a two-seater sofa (the smaller the better). There are other options that are covered by the term ’sofa’, but you get the idea. In fact, you will likely already know what you are looking for once you have made the decision to buy a living room sofa.
Comfort and Style – We have yet to mention comfort, and it is debatable when discussing living room furniture whether style or comfort is the more important. It is likely the latter, but with style a close second which makes the choice harder. You often have to visit a showroom to try a couch by sitting in it, although many do successfully purchase sofas online. As you are likely aware, sofas come in many styles, fabrics, materials and colors, and you consequently have a wide range from which to choose the one that suits you the best. Before you even get that far you first have to decide on what type of sofa or couch you want.
