Create an interesting effect even with a simple arrangement by doing the same to recliners with built-in footrests. Some chairs today come in eye-catching upholstery patterns that are sure to contrast well with a solid colored sofa set.
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.
