Sideboards don’t just have to be bulky pieces of furniture, they can be contemporary and elegant too, making them perfect for your living room. Choose from slim sideboards for smaller spaces or create a real statement with a more unique item.
Always have unexpected guests popping round? Then a storage footstool could be perfect for you! This multi-purpose piece not only offers additional storage, but can also be chosen in a contrasting fabric or colour to your sofa creating a real focal point. Simply lift the lid and hideaway all of those small belonging dotted around your lounge.
Traditional bookcases and shelving can become a bit dull and uninspiring. Open shelving units can be used as a room divider, to display ornaments or as a bookshelf. The industrial chic look is everywhere so why not choose a rustic looking shelving unit with metal detailing.
Storage doesn't just have to be functional, you could give your room a whole new focal point with a statement TV stand. Corner TV units are great for maximising space, easily slotting into the corner. While a large spacious option can offer plenty of storage for DVD players, Games Consoles and extra accessories. We love the white gloss look, not only is it really on trend, but it the clean lines make for a fabulous addition to a contemporary home.
Coffee tables shouldn't just be a dumping ground for old magazines but an expression of personality while also containing practical storage solution. Coffee tables with drawers are great for hiding away TV remotes, while bottom shelves are fantastic for displaying beautiful magazine collections and inspiring books.
Hopefully this little guide has given you some inspiration to update your living room with not just functional furniture, but also picking super stylish multi-functional pieces to really make a statement within your living room.
