The living room of the mid 50’s in the US was a staple representation of family values, it was a place where the entire family gathered to enjoy each other’s company, share their days and play game nights.
It is also called a family room, where everyone gathered around the TV set to enjoy a movie or a program suitable for all ages – nowadays that has not changed, but it simply not the same.
Smart phones, tablets and other mobile devices have transformed the living room in a playground of technologies, where people enjoy their video games, have home theaters and generally enjoy each other’s company in a different way.
So has the role of decorations and interior design changed with the times, it is more utilitarian, aimed at storage and beauty at the same time.
Some may argue that this is a vast living room improvement, while others think that this has ruined this space.
