Various ways of arranging living room furniture…pick the one that suits your home and your style!
1. Arrange for Face-to-Face Conversation
Arranging the seating pieces to face each other over a shared coffee table makes conversation easy, and the table keeps drinks in easy reach. This is one of the most conventional arrangement types for the living room furniture.
2. Divide the Room with Furniture
Most modern homes today are based on the open floor plan where the Living room and dining room are combined in one large open space. Divide this large space into separate zones with furniture placement. A sofa facing away from the dining room defines the conversation area from the rest of this open layout.
3. Seat Four with Chairs
If you don’t have room for the usual sofas and love seats, four comfy chairs will serve as well–or perhaps better. There is absolutely no need to stuff your limited living room space with a bulky 3-seater sofa which can effectively seat only 2! Add four chairs around a small coffee table or an ottoman to create the perfect conversation setting. In this clean, crisp setting, matching white slipcovered chairs define an orderly, compact, yet welcoming seating group.
4. Focus on the View
An effective room arrangement starts with the focal point, the cornerstone of your living room design. Typically the main feature wall with the TV plays this role, but in this contemporary cottage space, the view out the French doors takes center stage instead. Orient the main seating piece toward the focal point and arrange the secondary seating pieces around the main piece.
5. Pull Furnishings Together with a Rug
Use a large area rug to unify a seating group within a larger space. If the rug isn’t large enough to contain all of the seating pieces, make sure that those farthest from the wall are solidly anchored on this main seating space. It is very important to give the seating area a defined boundary.swq[/vc_column][/vc_row]
