If you prefer the look of traditional living room furniture, you are not alone. Unfortunately for some people, though, many furniture galleries now primarily offer more contemporary pieces. The good news is that you can still find traditional furniture; you just may have to look a bit harder for it.
At Club Furniture, we carry a huge selection of stylish living room furniture that would fit perfectly in your home. Whether you are looking for a timeless wingback chair to place in front of your fireplace, a tufted sofa, or just about any other type of traditional living room furniture, we have you covered. We’ve also put together this guide to help you decorate and create a warm, inviting space using traditional furniture.
About Traditional Décor
Traditional décor is timeless and anything but boring. Traditional living rooms tend to have a very specific look that focuses on elegance and cohesiveness, where everything matches everything else. The colors used most often include shades of beige and brown. Furniture is well-made and features elegant detailing that coordinates with the room. Beautiful large rugs are commonly found in traditional living rooms and are often used to tie all the piece together while creating a more inviting, cozy feeling in the space.
Shopping for Traditional Living Room Furniture
We offer a wide selection of traditional living room furniture, but it isn’t your only option. Many retailers offer traditional designs, and you can also find pieces at secondhand shops. When you are shopping for furniture, quality should always be your primary concern. You may pay a little bit more, but you will end up with durable furniture that will withstand the test of time and look just as great several years down the road from when you purchase it.
Look for furniture made from high-quality materials such as top-grain leather and hardwood. If you prefer fabric upholstery, look for something that is durable and easy to clean—especially if you have children or pets.
Examples of Traditional Living Room Furniture
Traditional living room furniture is comfortable and inviting. Tufted sofas, upholstered armchairs, and wingback chairs all serve as examples of traditional living room furniture. Accent tables and coffee tables made from solid wood are also common. The pieces typically have neutral colors, but there are some exceptions.
Decorating a Traditional Living Room
When decorating a traditional living room, it is important to choose pieces that work well together and to choose a furniture layout that encourages conversation. A Chesterfield sofa flanked by two accent chairs is a good traditional layout. Add two matching end tables, stylish table lamps, and a high-quality coffee table to complete the look. Hanging a large painting over the sofa ties the entire room together and adds a bit of personality.
The right accent pieces are important in any room, but they are especially important when you want a traditional space that reflects who you are. Adding a leather accent chair, brightly colored accent pillows, artwork, or even a piece of pottery to an otherwise neutral room injects a bit of color while adding a slightly modern touch to a traditional space.
If you want to maintain a more classic look, a few nice antiques will do the job. Try antique light fixtures or a gorgeous old framed artwork. Look for accents that reflect your interests as well as your personality. It’s your home, after all!
If you like the look of a traditional living room, there are plenty of places to find the furniture you need. While you may need to look a bit harder if you are not in the market for contemporary furniture, many furniture galleries and stores offer traditional pieces. They can also be found at secondhand stores.
Look for pieces with strong lines and traditional features like turned legs or tufted cushions. Shop for high-quality pieces that are constructed using materials that will withstand the test of time.
Keep in mind that a traditional living room doesn’t have to be boring, nor does it have to match a picture you saw in an interior design magazine. Feel free to incorporate your own ideas and use pieces that you love. At Club Furniture, we have handcrafted traditional living room furniture that would be perfect for your home.
