Shop by room: Living rooms
The living room is the heart of your home — in theory. But if the room isn’t as welcoming, it may not be as much of an activity center for family and friends as you’d like it to be. This product page is the perfect jumping-off point for a stylish living room makeover built off of our Every Day Low Prices and a focus on practical essentials. Consider your needs in each category to create the ideal arrangement of furniture, accessories and decorative accents to revitalize this important gathering place in your home.
The right living room design provides an ideal setting for a variety of different activities, but the first step in getting there is finding the right furniture. From seating to storage, this product category offers inviting new furniture to entice your guests.Sofas, couches and futons: Your housing scenario can easily inform your sofa or futon choice. For example, residents of small apartments may prefer a multifunctional futon or sofa bed to give friends and family a place to stay, while those with larger homes and guest rooms may prefer a different sofa style based on the size of the living room. Remember that sofas often pair best with other seating types, so choose furniture pieces from this section that won’t monopolize floor space in your living room.Accent chairs and recliners: Recliners and armchairs are among the most versatile pieces of living room furniture. Set up two recliners with a table in between as a reading nook for yourself and your spouse, or make an arrangement of a sofa with two chairs on either side to facilitate conversation between friends. Pay attention not only to the color and pattern of your chosen chairs but also to the overall shape and style to ensure you end up with a cohesive living room design.Ottomans and coffee tables: Some people love to put their feet up when they relax on a sofa or chair, and that often means pairing ottomans with furniture as a way to avoid feet on the coffee table. In some cases, ottomans can double as overflow seating or a stylish alternative to a coffee table with the addition of a tray that can serve as a flat surface for drinks and decor. When space is at a premium, though, a stylish coffee table is often your best bet for organization and comfort in your living room.TV stands and entertainment centers: Keep your TV, gaming consoles and other entertainment equipment all tidy and attractive with the right furniture. Entertainment centers and TV stands offer a range of different organizing options for your living room, including the option to bring in an electric fireplace for warmth and ambience. Whichever style you choose, be sure to measure your TV and other equipment to ensure a proper fit once the new furniture arrives.
Tie your living room furniture together with desirable decor by picking items that match your style. Look for similar colors and designs that coordinate well with your furniture and with other decor items to ensure the room looks polished and inviting.Pillows, blankets and throws: Once you know what seating pieces you’re getting for your living room, think about how you can add extra comfort with blankets and pillows. Decorative accent pillows add cushioning to your seating area, and they can also be a great way of incorporating seasonal decor into the room. When you shop for blankets, think both about how many people might use the space and about proper care instructions for the blankets you select. Houses with several pets or rambunctious kids may not be well suited to blankets that require dry cleaning, for example.Mirrors and wall art: Wall art is an ideal finishing touch for a living room, but it’s important to select the right motifs and sizes for your decor. A too-large painting in a small room can be visually overwhelming, while a single small painting in a large living room can feel unfinished. When in doubt, mirrors are often a good choice for living room decor because they’re elegant and help reflect light to make the room brighter.Rugs and drapes: Rugs and curtains may have a purely decorative function, but in both cases they can make the room more comfortable and functional, depending on how you intend to entertain. Frequent movie nights can get more polished with the inclusion of blackout drapes that block out light from the windows, and kids who like to sit on the floor to play board games or watch TV get extra cushioning from a plush rug. Considering your ideal living room's purpose makes it easier to pick out the right items from this product category.Lamps and candles: Light is the final finishing touch necessary to make your living room comfortable for different uses. While many living rooms come with built-in lighting, there may be times when you require directional light for reading or mood lighting for a party. Lamps and candles help finish off the decor and make your lounge area more versatile.
