Living Room

In Western architecture, a living room or lounge room (informal: lounge) is a room in a residential house for relaxing and socializing. Such a room is sometimes called a front room when it is near the main entrance at the front of the house. The term sitting room is sometimes used synonymously with living room, although a sitting room may also occur in a hotel or other public building. The term living room was coined in the late 19th or early 20th century.

Famous quotes containing the words living and/or room:

    risk is full: every living thing in

    the shallows, darts to shore
    to stab—

    A man finds room in the few square inches of the face for the traits of all his ancestors; for the expression of all his history, and his wants.
