Furniture must be made of a material that suits the use. Some materials are harder and more durable, like wood and certain upholstered fabrics, and others are more delicate. A lacquered table has a luxurious look but won’t stand up to family dinners over time without a lot of maintenance. In this case, hardwood or laminate is the best option. Something similar happens with fabrics: a faux leather chair is suitable for heavy use and easy to clean, while chenille is always delicate and easier to stain.
Some types of furniture have exposed wood and the colours can alter with time. If you want to avoid future problems like fading wood, you can apply UV resistant finishes on wooden surfaces. In areas that will be used frequently, it is better to choose a slightly darker fabric colour. Also, if you have toddlers and pets, you may want to reconsider delicate and light fabric in general.
Plants are a wonderful way to add depth to a small living room. Lush greenery softens corners and fools the eye into thinking there is more to the room than there really is. Plants are especially effective in corners and beside or behind chairs and sofas. If you can keep the furniture from contrasting, then your room will look just fine. You can always break rules when it comes to decorating small spaces because you don’t have as much area to work with, so it generally is not as noticeable.
