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.
Before you break a sweat arranging and rearranging furniture, it is crucial to have a furnishing plan in mind. And, while this plan is entirely up to you, you’ll have a better chance of success if you establish a clear focal point. This can be anything that strikes your fancy: televisions, windows, fireplaces, even people. Once deciding this, the placement of furniture and the different types of furniture needed will become exceedingly clear, saving you hours upon hours of stress and back-breaking work.
