On Living Rooms
The living room has long been a traditional fixture in Western homes. In many homes the living room was at one time a place for the nicest furniture, generally off limits to pets and children, if not everyone unless the family was formally entertaining guests. In these homes a separate family room or den would be where day to day living was done.
Throughout the 1900’s the contemporary norm for homes gradually changed. As suburbia grew and more middle-class people could afford a home with a white picket fence, two car garage and colour television, the idea of what a living room should be changed too.
The living room has now become the center for entertaining as well as entertainment in the home on a day to day basis. As such, stylish yet practical furniture is a must for a successful living experience.
When entertaining most people do not want a massive TV as the centerpiece to the room so the choice of entertainment center is an important one (with the exception of the new slim plasma and LCD designs which can blend in unobtrusively and look excellent atop a good TV stand). If you are really into audio / video technology, having a well designed piece of furniture to accommodate all the equipment gives you both the easy access and organization you need to get the most out of them.
In the loft style spaces that are becoming increasingly popular, the responsibility falls to furniture instead of walls to divide a space in kitchen, dining and living areas. Many traditional types of furniture simply do not accommodate these concerns in their design. We have embraced these needs and offer items like the step chests that have double sided drawers and doored compartments, making them perfect places to both store and display items while dividing a large space naturally.
