Deciding on a focal point will really help with space planning—a TV, fireplace, chandelier, artwork, et cetera. Once that is determined, the furniture arrangements can fall into place around it. If the living room involves a television, note that the viewing distance for a standard TV is between 8 to 12 feet maximum, and the viewing angle is no more than 30 degrees. So the main sofa, couch or sectional should be placed facing that wall.
For those blessed with spacious or vaulted windows, it might be a good idea to have accommodating furniture in order to immerse yourself in the great outdoors. Much like the television setup, this arrangement calls for comfortable seating around a singular focal point: in this case, the view. Each chair or couch should be placed in a semi-circle or perpendicular fashion so as to provide a clear view of the window and of the people in your company.
The last element of a living room furniture layout is also the easiest: the rug. This should be centered in the middle of the main seating arrangement and extend a few inches beyond the sofa and chairs (or even further) to anchor the entire room. If the room is already carpeted, adding a thicker accent rug on top is a nice way to add warmth and encourage guests to relax and stay awhile.
