The key to a good furniture arrangement is all in the details—especially side tables and coffee tables. Consider your room size and furniture arrangement when choosing the right coffee table. Use round pedestal tables as side tables between chairs and sofas. The curves of round tables make them easier to navigate around. When space is tight, use nesting tables for flexible use when needed.
Once the seating area has been set (around the focal point), placing tables and storage cabinets is next. In a living room, the main coffee table or ottoman can be placed in the middle of the sofas and chairs. It’s best to allow 18 inches between a coffee table and sofa so drinks and the tv remote are within reach. Sofa tables are long, narrow tables that go behind a sofa, against its back. Side tables go next to the armchairs and on either side of the sofa. Be sure to allow at least 30 inches between furniture pieces in places where people need to pass through.
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.
