We always talk of the living room as a monolithic unit. Every little detail in the room is like a small piece of the larger jigsaw. Disturb one and you might have to end up creating an entirely new picture! The fabulous and comfy couch is definitely at the center of this delightful setting and is inarguably the most important piece of décor in any living space. A couch can define the style of your living room and as an extension that of your kitchen and dining space as well. It pretty much lays down the marker for everything else and is the one large addition that can transform the living room ambiance.
Colorful sofas have become much more accepted in recent times with neutral interiors allowing a bright and colorful sofa to shine through visually. Since living room backgrounds are becoming ‘increasingly colorless’, the onus of bringing excitement and brightness to the space seems to fall on the furniture that you bring in.

Enjoy the flamboyant feast
Minute details make a big difference to the larger picture and it is ultimately the smaller design and decorating choices that define the style of your home. It is the couch, coffee table and the TV unit that might largely set the mood in your living room, but you still need a cool end table or side table to truly complete the setting. Despite their seemingly modest presence, end tables make your life a whole lot easier even while adding another unique dimension to the living space. Often overlooked, these versatile additions also find a place beyond just the corner next to the couch!
Yes, an end table allows you to place you put down your favorite page thriller, your smartphone and that drink you are sipping next as you relax in your comfy sofa. But there is much more to picking the right end table than just size. You can choose an end table that either blends in with the color scheme and style of your living room or feels like an entirely oblique addition that ushers in contrast and curiosity. A smart end table with golden glint is a great choice for contemporary living rooms which need some sparkle and metallic zest.
