So a semi-circular furniture configuration around the hearth, with no more than 8 feet in between seats, promotes easy interaction with family and friends. For living rooms with neither a hearth or a television, a central focal point makes the most sense. Float a sofa (or two, facing each other) around a coffee table, with chairs placed around the circle to close any gaps.
If you have no free walls and a centered fireplace, float seating in the center of a room filled with doors and windows. Face chairs and sofa toward each other to encourage conversation. Anchor the conversation grouping with a rug and large coffee table. Frame the space with additional seating and cabinets for storage, positioned around the perimeter of the room along the walls. Arranging furniture around a fireplace, especially in the winter, makes your living room feel inviting and cozy.
Before choosing family room furniture, decide on the overall style of the place. Traditional furniture, such as tufted sofas and upholstered chairs, are perfect for classically-styled spaces. If you are drawn to a more contemporary, on-trend look, you may opt for modern or mid-century modern furniture designs. Somewhere in the middle? Mix and match items from different sets and collections for personalized look, or create your own custom furniture.
