If you are not sure how to arrange furniture in a living room, orient seating so it takes advantage of whatever view your room has to offer, whether it is a TV or a bank of windows. Create your own focal point by hanging a large piece of art on a wall or create a vignette of favorite objects on a console or bookshelf. If you can not decide between arranging the furniture around the fireplace or the TV, choose both and mount the TV above the fireplace.
Deciding on a focal point will really help with space planning—a TV, fireplace, chandelier, artwork, et cetera. Once that is determined, the furniture arrangements can fall into place around it. If the living room involves a television, note that the viewing distance for a standard TV is between 8 to 12 feet maximum, and the viewing angle is no more than 30 degrees. So the main sofa, couch or sectional should be placed facing that wall.
To do so, include a series of comfortable chairs that face away from the walls and toward each other, with a shared coffee table at the center. To maintain that sense of ease mentioned by Shea Homes, this configuration is ideal for spaces that have a single entry point, with all sofa or chair backs positioned safely against walls and corners.
