While some people enjoy the perpetual flicker of a flat screen television, others would rather spend their leisure time in conversation with friends and family. For a more social space, it is a good idea to place your furniture with people as your focal point, i.e. in a circle or parallel setup where everyone can see each other. Shea Homes, an online furnishing resource adds, “Make your guests as comfortable as possible by allowing them to sit in a seat where their backs are not facing an open space or door. Research has shown that this position can help lower blood pressure and make people feel more at ease.”
As much as you might doubt the designer discount in the dingy warehouse, be leery of unscrupulous websites. Just like a gorgeous showroom in the design district, a well-designed website generally indicates a serious retailer. Illegitimate operations rarely invest in the expensive and time-consuming infrastructure of good, pleasing web design. Also keep an eye open for industry certifications, and don’t hesitate to verify with that agency if you have your doubts.
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.
