Another recent trend in living room furniture for penthouses is the themed look. If you opt for an Asian theme, the living space could display square, circle or even spiral shaped furniture throughout the living room. A low coffee table could also be an interesting pick. A minimalistic approach could do wonders by just having a couple of Asian artifacts such as a gong or an Asian country side painting. A black and white theme or a black and red combination theme could make your living room elegant and smart. A lot of people are now going in for customized furniture. Keeping the space and budget in mind, you could get your kind of furniture by ordering it specifically from a designer. Bulky pieces are no more in vogue as it makes your room look smaller.
Living room furniture for modern penthouses or other contemporary homes has undergone a tremendous shift. People are giving more importance to the fabric, color and material than before. Quality and stylish furniture is what stands out. While recliner chairs are best known as those plush seats only the head of the household could sit in, modern day recliners come in sleek designs that blend in better with the rest of the living room furniture. This turns the recliner into a comfortable seat not just for the head of the household, but for everyone to enjoy.
