The ancient Chinese system of aesthetics known as feng shui has recently had a rebirth in the Western world. Feng shui is a system used by some Chinese used to orient their buildings in order to maximize positive energy and redirect negative energy.

Today feng shui has been adapted in the West as an interior design technique. There are some who criticize the practice as being watered down from its original form and others who say it was a bunch of superstitious nonsense from the beginning. But one thing is for sure, whether you believe that feng shui works or not, the furniture you have in your house and how it is arranged affects both your daily life and how others perceive you.

Sometimes when you move into a place, it just feels like home. Other times it may take you a little while to settle in as you rearrange and try a variety of new setups. When people come into your home they will each have different impressions depending on their personalities. Some will find it cozy; others may find it sparse and cold.

The important thing is that you purchase living room furniture and arrange it in a way that makes you feel good about yourself and your surroundings. Here are a few suggestions for classic pieces of furniture that should fit right in with any contemporary living space.
