One thing which technology is yet to reach is the bookcase. It can be a thing of practicality as well as an item of beauty, and as it is probably going to be your second largest item of living room furniture in your home aside from the sofa. These too come in all shapes and sizes, and can vary from plain, usually wooden or metal and glass to make-shift room dividers, with lots of square-shaped shelves to hold books, DVDs, CDs as well as picture frames and figurines.
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.
