You need to consider a lot of things when choosing small living room furniture. The small space always needs to be decorated in an ordered manner. Try to decorate some parts of it and leave some parts undecorated because you will definitely need some space for walking inside it.
If you add too many furniture items and accessories in the decoration, they will make your space look very suffocated, congested and clutter. The circulation of fresh air is usually impact in a cluttered and swamped area so if you will decorate every nook of the living room you should know that you are blocking the proper inflow and outflow of the oxygen in that area. Even if you intend to tackle this problem by introducing some plants or trees inside the room, mind that they will not make a much difference because they need oxygen too, in order to grow and live.
Keep your living room as simple as possible with little furniture. If it is a square shaped space then you can consider one of the following furniture items:
One big curved accent sofa set that has a chaise with it. The chaise will provide more seating for your guests and family members. Hence you will not need to buy extra sectionals to fill the area.
One sofa set with five sectional seats and one chaise would also be good furniture to arrange in the living room with one square or round table. To further decorate the space you can mount one big LCD television and hang some suspended ceiling lighting. The combination will work well and good for any type of interior you have.
Two sets of top grain leather sofa sets are also a good choice for the decoration if you want to create a simple yet minimalistic makeover. Mind that leather sets are often dark in shades, to balance the color effect you can hang some light colored curtains on the pole. Or else add some light colored cushions on the sofa.
If you intend to place accent recliners in the living room, you should not buy more than five or six seats because they are usually larger in sizes compared to standard sofa furniture.
Do not add chair set in the living room unless it is combined with the dining area. The small spaced living room must not be overcrowded with the furniture everywhere because it will look desultory and imbalanced.
