Decorating & Furniture/Small livingroom PLEASE HELP!!


I have a townhouse and the livingroom is 12X12...what can I do to make this room ok for my fiance and I to have a few friends over without feeling cluttered.

Hi Tiffany,
Sorry for the delay, I was having technical difficulties with notification of questions.  Anyway, I'm not sure what you mean by your question.  Are you looking for additional storage, or seating, or both?  What items do you have in your living room now?  If you could attach a picture and/or provide additional information I would be more than happy to help.
A great solution to both storage and seating is to use a storage ottoman or bench as a coffee table.  Can't wait to hear from you.
