2022 Living Room Furniture Styles to Discover

School and college are starting, fall is coming soon, and revamping your place for cozy movie nights might be on your to-do list. As temperatures drop, it’s completely understandable to want to create an inviting, welcoming style in your home. Let’s look into some living room furniture styles to explore if freshening up your living room is a project of yours.

What Are the Different Types of Living Room Furniture Styles?

There are plenty of living room furniture styles and living room decor ideas to explore, it just depends on your personal preference! At Bush Furniture, we are proud to boast a comprehensive line of collections made to match any interior and style you might choose. From farmhouse to traditional and modern, we have a vast range of furniture styles to choose from. Let’s look together at some of the most popular styles in our arsenal.

Classic and Traditional Living Room Furniture Styles

Let’s start with one of the most classic living room furniture styles, the traditional style. Traditional interior design is a popular decor style largely inspired by 18th and 19th century European styles. Traditional decor is timeless, comfortable, and well-put-together but not overly flamboyant. This style uses pieces that will transcend generations and trends rather than eccentric or catchy objects that can feel heavy or tiresome after a season or two.

Try combining vintage and antique finds with a few of-the-moment accessories for a look that truly never goes out of style. Colors like beige, soft pastels, and other subtle nuances can contribute to a timeless look in your living room. One of our most beloved collections, Salinas, is a great example of a traditional yet relaxed style, especially in our Antique White finish.

Choose among a variety of TV stands, coffee tables, and other living room furniture solutions to create the look you want to achieve. A lift-top coffee table desk, for example, is a wonderful solution if you like working in your living room from time to time. It provides a functional surface that can move with you as you decide to rest, eat, or work in your living room. Our lift-top tables offer three locking positions and the highest goes to standard desk height, allowing you to work in comfort and avoid unwanted slouching. Simply lift the top of your table and voilà, your surface is adjusted to your needs.

Traditional Couches and Seating Arrangements

Once you’ve chosen your traditional style living room furniture, it’s time to choose your seating arrangements. An L-shaped or U-shaped sectional is a great choice for bigger spaces, and either can be a great centerpiece in your living room. Shop for a sofa with similar tones to your TV stand or coffee table to create a cohesive look.

Our Hudson Collection is a wonderful option to complement your traditional style living room. This collection offers upholstered living room seating with espresso-stained rounded bun feet and rolled armrests. Hudson reflects a sophisticated style that perfectly complements French country, farmhouse, coastal and traditional decor.

Choose among a variety of options including loveseats, accents chairs, ottomans, and different sectionals, and couches.

Farmhouse and Modern Farmhouse Living Room Furniture Styles

Cozy, charming, warm, rustic… Isn’t that what we envision when we hear the term “farmhouse”? It brings to mind images of farm life, cottage getaways, nature, and long weekends spent outdoors.

The good news is that you don’t have to leave your house to enjoy a relaxing cottage atmosphere! Farmhouse-style furniture can effectively transform your space and add that cottage feel you desire without requiring you to travel to faraway places. With the help of farmhouse-style living room furniture, you can recreate that feeling in your home.

There are many different types of farmhouse style. Modern farmhouse, on one hand, has become a very popular and trendy style in recent years, thanks to the rise and widespread popularity of certain home renovation and decor TV shows. The farmhouse style, on the other hand, has been around for years under various names such as country, primitive, or rustic style.

Today’s farmhouse style steers away from being too cute or kitschy by balancing the old and the new with cozy textures and not going overboard with any one element. In terms of comfort and coziness, it’s reminiscent of the 1980s country style, but all grown up.

Farmhouse-style homes are famous for not being matchy-matchy, but rather appear collected over time, with different elements fluidly blending in together. They are not cold or formal, but rather warm and inviting. Browns and grays are common farmhouse furniture colors, and finishes are frequently designed to look like wood.

When browsing living room furniture styles, the farmhouse style is a great option because it is charming and inviting. It is also adaptable and suitable for families. What does it matter if your child or cat scratches the dining room table? It only adds to the worn and lived-in look.

Sub-styles of the farmhouse style include modern farmhouse (less cluttered, more minimalist), French country farmhouse (classy and romantic), and industrial or rustic farmhouse (more masculine, with emphasis on repurposed commercial pieces).

With its trestle patterns and chamfered edges, the Homestead Collection is an excellent choice for any farmhouse lovers. A TV stand with electric fireplace insert is a fantastic choice for the whole year but extremely convenient in the colder months as you might spend more time indoors and be in need of supplemental heat.

Our Homestead electric fireplace TV stand offers a practical living room entertainment solution with appealing modern farmhouse style to get together with friends and family for movie night or catch up on your favorite show. Enjoy supplemental heat for rooms up to 1,000 square feet or use the display without heat to relax with a realistic log fire in any climate.

The long-lasting, energy-efficient LED screen requires no maintenance and stays cool to the touch for safety in the home or professional office. Our TV Stands’ Tip Guard™ safety features include a stable design, a counterweighted back panel, and wall attachment hardware. 

Country and Coastal Living Room Furniture Styles

Similar to farmhouse, the term “country” in the decorating world refers to a broad range of styles, including French country, lodge, cottage, American country, and coastal decor. All of these styles have one thing in common: a casual feel, an emphasis on natural materials that are frequently unfinished or weathered, natural colors, and, most importantly, an easy, welcoming appearance that feels cozy and warm.

One of our most popular collections in this style is the Key West Collection. This collection includes a wide variety of furniture ideal for any country-style room. Key West is one of our most popular and well-liked collections and for good reason. You can choose from a wide range of products, including lift-top coffee tables, console tables, and TV stands. Key West is ideal for both small and large homes due to its extensive offering, which includes furniture for the entryway, the living room, and the home office.

While Key West is one of our best-selling collections for country-style homes, we have many other collections with furniture that would look good in cottage- or coastal-style decors. You can also browse our living room furniture sets to find a matching bundle of living room furniture in the style of your choice.

Country, Cottage, Coastal, and Modern Farmhouse Living Room Sofas and Couches

To complement your farmhouse- or cottage-style living room furniture, choose a seating arrangement that is neutral and understated and decorate it with throws and pillows of different textures. Your sofa shouldn’t draw attention away from your room’s design but should complement and contribute to it.

Our Stockton Collection‘s beautiful shapes and finishes are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also functional. This collection, distinguished by its clean and straight lines, adds an elegant touch to your home while also providing a comfortable seating solution. Our Herringbone fabrics feature very subtle texture that would help build your farmhouse- or country-style decor.

Moreover, to prevent unsightly blemishes, our innovative StainGard™ fabric repels dirt, oil, water, and other liquids. This is ideal for families with children and pets — no need to worry about stains, we’ve got you covered! You can relax while watching movies with snacks and beverages, knowing that your sectional will be spotless.

Versatility is the Stockton Collection’s prime feature. The collection includes a variety of couches and armchairs, and the extensive color and fabric selection allows you to match it to your existing furniture.

Purchasing new furniture can be difficult because it may not match what you already have in your home, but not with Stockton. The linear design of this collection and your choice of fabric will look lovely next to your end tables, coffee table, console table, and TV stand.

How to Position Your Couch

There are several ways to arrange your sofa or sectional. While it is unquestionably a large piece of furniture, it can work in smaller homes if strategically placed.

A sofa looks best as the centerpiece in a large living room, especially when it comes to a U shaped sectional. This way, your family and friends can spend relaxing nights in front of a movie or a sporting event, forgetting about the stresses of the week and unwinding. In a smaller area, you can tuck your couch into a corner to maximize free space. It’s the best way to make the room appear larger than it is by using all available square footage.

There are also space-saving upholstery solutions for smaller homes, perfect for creating a cozy living room regardless of the lack of space. Our ottomans, for example, can serve multiple functions. You can use the ottoman as a footrest while watching a movie and store blankets or other items inside to keep them out of sight.

If a U shaped sectional sofa seems too big, an L shaped couch might do the trick. An L-shaped sectional is ideal for any room. Its shape allows you to create beautiful compositions and even divide a large room into a hybrid space with a home office in one half. Furthermore, some apartments have only one large open-concept space, effectively combining the bedroom, living room, and kitchen. In such cases, an L-shaped sectional can help to reorganize and divide the area. You can also position your L-shaped sectional in a corner to maximize space, or in the center to create a unique arrangement in your living room. Both options are viable; it all depends on how you want your space to be divided.

Modern Style

Last, but certainly not least, is the modern style. Unlike contemporary style, which is often confused with the modern style, modern decor doesn’t follow the latest trends; in fact, the modern style always stays as it is, following a simple rule: form follows function.

The modern style is rooted in German and Scandinavian design styles, and it dates back to the 1920s. This style is ideal for those who prefer simple, uncluttered spaces with clean lines and a lack of fussy adornments.

There are a few things to consider if you want to decorate a space in a modern style. You want to avoid creating a busy or “fussy” space. One way to do so is to leave structures, such as ceiling beams or concrete walls or floors exposed. Allow your lighting to be mostly natural; you can let in more light by leaving your windows unadorned and avoiding heavy or dark curtains. Focus on clean vertical and horizontal lines for your furniture and decor, curves do not necessarily belong in the modern decor style. The idea is to play with natural elements. You can keep this natural look by adopting a neutral color palette.

How to Decorate Your Living Room?

Incorporating greenery is always a fantastic idea, as indoor plants convey a sense of peace and tranquility and purify the air. If you have an abundance of light in your living room, add a plant or two to liven it up. Choose a simple pothos or snake plant if you are a beginner plant parent or something more exotic if you don’t mind giving your plant some extra attention.

Lastly, don’t forget about textures and textiles such as rugs, curtains, and different wall and floor art pieces. Allow yourself to indulge in your preferred style and complement it with pieces that feel unique and personal to you; whether it’s a vase, a pillow, or a scented candle, anything that fits with your style and feels homey is going to look lovely in your living room.
