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.
Whether you have carpet or hardwoods, a focal area rug helps to pull together the overall design of a room. Be sure to size the rug appropriately for your space. Many times, this means making sure that the seating[sofas, loveseats, sectionals, accent chairs, etc.] overlaps the area rug at least half way. You can use the colors in a favorite rug to bring in accent items, throw pillows, or other decor into the space.
When arranging living room furniture, there’s no need to crowd; leave room for traffic and an entry drop spot. Cozy key seating pieces up to the fireplace facing each other. Use end tables as landing spaces on both ends of the sofa. Pair chairs to balance the visual weight of the sofa and to maximize seating. The living room furniture arrangement should account for visiting guests, but still feel cozy when it is only you and your family.
