A sofa may be primary seating that offers the most seats, but the right chairs can have a large impact on your living room as well. A chair can accent a design, match the sofa to extend that design element, or add contrast to bring some drama and layers to your design. A chair or multiple chairs can change the balance of a room, shifting it, or bring it together to make the entire room feel unified and complete.
Online shopping is the new normal. And while getting paper towels and your multivitamins on repeat order is a no-brainer, there are some areas of the home that most people find a little intimidating. Furniture can be a fairly large purchase for a home, and shopping sight-unseen can be, in a word, daunting. While the showroom experience appeals to many, unless you live in design meccas like New York or Los Angeles, you may have to head to the web to get the best options, brands and designs. And like buying anything online, taking your time and getting the details right can make the difference between a deal and a disaster.
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.
