(I can't give all the sources (from all over google), but I do not own any of those pictures.)
I tried to create the living area which is partial descripted in the book.
Here in more detail:
- comfortably furnished living area
- a bed for sleeping
- a table for eating
- a desk for studying
- spacious room
- fabrics on the upholstered chairs and sofa are slightly thicker and more luxurious
- table legs are slender and curved with a small carved decoration at the foot
- bed in an alcove at the far end of the room, draped with a splendid cloth embroidered
over its entire surface with intricate designs
- room's walls are completely covered by bookcases

But the reader finds out that there is a difference between the family unit's dwellings and the house of the Giver. I would say that this underlines the honored Assignment as "Receiver of Memory" and is another point which shows that the Receiver is a special and important person in the community.
