One can utilize all types of materials to make functional design elements. For my living room I wanted an industrial look, so I went with metal as my core material. I was able to have a metal breakfast bar created for less than three thousand dollars. The bar is covered with a custom piece of glass, and adds a modern pop to any living room.
If you are using a TV set as your focal point, place it in an attractive setting such as a wall unit, hanging above a media cabinet or in a hanging media cabinet that can be closed off when not being used while providing yet another conversation piece to enhance your décor. In other words, make it earn the cherished position of the focal point of your room. The largest of your art pieces should be placed with the largest furniture pieces; something that says I'm special! If you don't see the perfect piece, head to thrift shops, yard and garage sales and Flea Markets. You know what to do!
By choosing these seats as a focal point for the room, you can trim down the rest of the living room furniture and arrange the space so as it appears bigger than it really is. After all, clutter will easily create a cramped look for the room, which any homeowner would want to avoid.
