A living room represents the fun part of the house with cozy seating, an entertainment center for watching TV, and a coffee table for serving guests. Your living room furniture offers an opportunity to expand beyond just a few essential pieces. Woodcraft Furniture discusses some living room furniture pieces you might not think of when you want to add some items to the room’s overall design.
An ottoman is a fancy footrest or footstool. Historically, ottomans were made of upholstered fabric. Modern versions are often cushioned, thick, and have button tufting for an elegant look. Ottomans range from smaller versions to put in front of a chair or larger ones appropriate for setting trays of food on when entertaining guests. An ottoman may serve as a substitute for a coffee table for living room furniture.

A console table goes behind a couch. This kind of living room furniture is long, skinny, and tall so it fits into a narrow area and matches the height of your sofa’s back. This profile fits neatly between the couch and the wall, or it bridges the gap between the sofa and a walking area. A console table works well for creating a place to display artwork and photo frames or to keep remotes and mobile devices handy.
Wooden Rocking Chair
Add a bit of tradition and an heirloom piece to your living room furniture with a wooden rocking chair. A rocker glides effortlessly on a hardwood floor. Put it on a carpeted area, so the chair remains in one spot in your living room. Place a cushion on the seat to make the chair cozier and consider a throw blanket or folded-up quilt over the back for a splash of color.

Pick out a corner shelf to fill a gap in your living room furniture. A corner shelf spruces up an empty part of the room and gives you a chance to decorate with knick-knacks, artwork, photos, and a small table lamp. Choose a shelf that goes from floor to ceiling or one that allows you to reach everything easily. A corner shelf has a triangular shape, so it fits neatly into the provided space. The shelves can be of any shape or size.
A full-size bookshelf is for more than just books. Store digital media, composition notebooks, mementos, and display art to make this type of living room furniture stand out. A bookshelf also serves as a way to fill in space along a blank wall, whether you need one that’s skinny and tall or short and squat.
