Our favorite offbeat living room furniture pieces for your Chicago home or apartment

There’s a reason they call your living room a living room. It’s because most of us spend most of our precious time at home there. There’s nothing better then getting home after a long day at work and getting cozy on your couch while you sip some tea and read a book or catch up on some TV.

But whether you call it your living room, great room, or family room, it’s important that you love how it looks. And at your favorite Chicago furniture store, Wrightwood Furniture, we have tons of great pieces that will liven up any living room. From sofa tables, chairs, coffee tables, consoles, and end tables, we’ve got everything you need to make your favorite space even better. Check out some of our favorite living room furniture pieces below!

Atlas Bench, Walnut

Benches are highly versatile, especially as living room furniture. And besides being functional, the Atlas Bench is also extremely stylish. Combining a mid-century modern aestheticism with the rustic character of its wooden, live-edge seat, the Atlas brings together the best of minimalist and natural design. Because it comes in 4 lovely finishes, Natural, Mahogany, Espresso, and Walnut, it is sure to fit in with almost any style of décor. In your living room, use it for seating during a get-together and storage whenever else. But don’t stop there! This wonderful piece will also work great in your dining room mixed with your current table and chairs. And in your bedroom, put it at the foot of your bed for a great place to slip on your shoes in the morning.

Industrial Iron Cabinet, Grey

Perfect for the regular entertainer, but also for the avid collector; this cabinet is a dream come true. Made in Jodhpur, India, our Industrial Iron Cabinet is truly a unique piece of living room furniture. Constructed in durable light grey iron, this 4 shelved beauty is perfect for any of your living room storage needs. It makes a wonderful bar! Simply keep all of your beautiful stemware behind the glass door and place your beverages on the lower shelf. Or if you have a wonderful collection of antique dishes or figurines, they’ll look great in this cabinet.

Iron Mesh Cubby Rack, Acid Finish

Something you can never have too much of in a living room is storage. Our Iron Mesh Cubby Rack is the perfect solution.
