The sofa can be an integral part of your living room. It is the place where people are drawn to sit, as well as the piece of furniture that you are likely to point toward your main focus. Whether that focus is a television or a fireplace, your sofa will likely face it. There are a number of sofa options to choose from. The most traditional of which is the classic sofa. This is a standard in most living rooms and typically offers seating for three persons comfortably. This kind of sofa comes in a wide variety of styles, materials, and designs and is often very easy to reupholster.
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.”
Sure, you need a spot to set your drink and maybe display a book or two, but that doesn’t mean you’re limited to the standard square or rectangular cocktail table. Try grouping smaller round tables or go for an ottoman topped with a tray for a comfy spot to kick your feet up also offers extra seating for a crowd.
