The living room, den, lounge or parlor of a home is its heart; it’s where the family gathers after dinner to chat, where guests mingle at house parties, where family movie nights are held. You can curl up with a good book in a big, comfortable chair or host a board game night, but if your living room doesn’t represent you, it can be hard to want to spend time in it at all. If it’s time for a change in your house, you’re probably looking for inspiration to get in the furniture shopping mood. We’ve got a ton of living rooms for you to look through, plus ways for you to get the look without breaking the bank!
