Choosing The Best Living Room Furniture

Thinking about redesigning your living room? Whether you’re looking to do a total room refresh or update a few pieces of furniture, we have you covered. Here are Pineapples Palms tips for choosing the best living room furniture for your home.

1. Sofa vs Sectional

When furnishing a living room, we recommend starting with an amazing sofa or sectional and designing around that. A few thoughts to consider when choosing between a sofa or a sectional are: the size of your room, your style preference, and who will be using it. A traditional sofa is the better option for a smaller living space and can offer a more formal look, while sectionals are a great option for families who enjoy the cozy seating a sectional provides.

With either choice, you’ll want to consider fabric options and whether to go slipcovered or upholstered. The “Puddle Proof – Dove” fabric from our Coley Home Collection is a great choice for furniture in a high-traffic room. This crisp white stain repellant fabric will weather through red wine, messy hands, and paw prints.

Puddle Proof – Dove
Fabric Choice Available on all Coley Home Furniture.

2. Choose Additional Seating

For extra seating, we love easy to move options! A swivel chair can easily spin from the TV to facing the couch for some conversation. Both our Hadley Upholstered Swivel Chair and Nash Swivel Glider are great options that can be customized with your choice of fabric.

Ottomans and Poufs add additional seating in your living room and can effortlessly be moved wherever you need them. Ottomans are versatile enough to be used as seating, a footrest, or just a place to sit down a tray when you need it. The Coley Home Pouf features a dense foam core surrounded by plush fill, making is a sturdy but comfortable seat. It also serves as a comfortable footrest for the Nash Swivel Glider!

3. Add Your Accent Tables

When choosing the best living room furniture, you’ll want to finish the room by selecting accent tables including the coffee table, end tables, and console for below your TV or statement artwork. Continuing with our trend of custom pieces, the Nesbit Coffee Table offers a modern look while bringing a pop of color to your living room. The underside of this table can be finished with any Benjamin Moore Paint color.

Shown above is also the Ruth Side Table from Worlds Away. This table was thoughtfully designed with an Asian inspired chow leg base, natural cane door and drawer inlays, petite brass hardware, and matte white lacquer finish. Our entire selection of side tables, coffee tables, and living room cabinets are available to shop on our website.

We offer gorgeous living room furniture both in store and a wider selection online. If you’re not local or have more questions, we can help you shop for and create custom furnishings for your luxury home! Fill out our E-Design Questionnaire to connect with one of our experienced interior designers who will help you create the home of your dreams!

Fleurette Napkins (Set of 4)

Add soft colors of pink, green and white into your kitchen with these beautifully flora designed fabric napkins. Made of 100% cotton that are great for absorbing all types of spills and messes. Comes as a set of 4 packed together with a simple ribbon tie.
