Goodbyes are never easy, and yeah, letting go of all those memories from your college days can be tough, but a new timeless sofa in your living room will provide you with a comfortable place to entertain friends and family.

Listen, nobody likes clutter. But it is inevitable. Not all of us have the extra funds to hire a housekeeper. So when you are in a hurry to clean up your place (like those times when your parents unexpectedly come to town), make sure you have furniture that works hard at covering up messes. Smart furniture designers have created and designed stylish and long-lasting pieces like coffee tables with built-in storage that hide clutter and store your cozy blankets and throw pillows until it's time to binge the next Netflix original series. Your life (and living room) will look put together when your relatives show up — even if it really isn’t.
If you are lucky enough to have even a little extra space in the living room of your studio, apartment, or your house, you might want to fill it with seating for your guests. Only so many people can fit on your sofa. And if you don’t want to be rubbing arms with that one guy your bestie met from Bumble, make sure that everyone, including yourself, has a comfortable place to sit. Opt for a loveseat or chair-and-a-half that complements the style of your sofa. It will be a great addition for when your living room fills up with houseguests. And, as a bonus, it will pull your entire living room together — win!
