Functional as well as decorative. A great idea, especially when working with a small space is to select items that make great features yet also serve a purpose. For instance, chaise lounge chairs are great not only as lounges but they also double as a place to put your feet up and provide extra seating when you are entertaining guests.
The style of the room refers to the type of furnishings and style of decor you select for decorating your living room space. It is important to choose a style that you like and to also make sure that you stay with the one style throughout the living room area.
If you are working with a large space and want to create different areas, segment the room by using lounges and other large pieces of furniture as subtle divers.
