One of the most common uses of a living room is to watch television, and so it is important to orient your furniture in a manner that gives everyone a comfortable viewing experience. Cindy Warnock, former director of design at Western Contract in Sacramento, insists that, “With the television up against the wall, it’s good to have a lot of cushioned seating surrounding it, like recliners, L-shaped sofas and maybe a loveseat. A cushioned coffee table is also a good idea, so you can put your feet up if need be.”
If you’ve had your furniture in the same spot since the day you’ve moved in, it might be time to switch it up. Try moving the sofa to a different wall or turning it perpendicularly to create separate seating areas. It’s an instant (and free) redesign! Crisp white sofa works well in any space, but they have a reputation for being high-maintenance. Compromise with tailored, washable slipcovers (and also, get good at spot-cleaning)
Once you have chosen seating, add tables. A classic wood accent table looks timeless in a classic living room, and tables of glass or marble are on-trend and modern. Strategically place end tables near chairs to hold drinks (do not forget coasters), remotes, books and more. If you have space, add a console table behind a sofa for table lamps and accents and decor.
