The living room is also called a lounge room, a sitting room. It's a room for relaxing and socializing in a residential house or apartment. Sometimes called a front room when it is near the main entrance at the front of the house. In large, formal homes, a sitting room is often a small private living area adjacent to a bedroom, such as the Queen's Sitting Room. After World War I the living room was the least used space in the house and was referred to as the death room. It is now a term used more frequently when referring to a space to relax and unwind within a household.
Within different parts of the world, living rooms are designed differently and evolving, but all share the same purpose, to gather users in a comfortable space. In homes that lack a parlor or drawing room, the living room may also function as a reception room for guests. Objects in living rooms may be used to instigate and mediate contemplation about significant others, as well as to regulate the amount of intimacy desired with guests.
A typical Western living room may contain furnishings such as a sofa, chairs, occasional tables, coffee tables, bookshelves, televisions, electric lamps, rugs, or other furniture. Depending on the climate, sitting rooms would traditionally contain a fireplace, dating from when this was necessary for heating.
