For small spaces, consider nesting tables that can expand when in use and fold up when they are not needed. Storage cabinets and case goods are placed against the wall, wherever the space allows. Media consoles and TV stands go under the television, and credenzas are usually placed on the longest wall. Etageres are high, open cabinets that display souvenirs, books, accessories and family photographs, and look best on a larger, empty wall so it doesn’t get crowded. Bar cabinets and bar carts are pieces that add an aura of glamour to the living room.
In these cases, Warnock recommends versatile furniture, touting the convenience of an adjustable recliner or an ottoman, which “can serve as a place to put your feet up or act as extra seating as needed.” If you take a look at the examples, you’ll see the furniture in a perpendicular orientation, sufficiently spaced from the wall as to provide comfortable walking space while simultaneously drawing your attention to the window.
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.
