You have heard us declare "It is all in the mix" countless times, and while cliché, you have to admit there is truth to the statement. The best spaces are not one note; rather, they are a little bit modern, a little bit granny-chic (or perhaps mostly minimalist, a hint flashy—you catch our drift). This is especially true when it comes to choosing furniture. Gone are the days when you would buy a matching set from the furniture store. Now it’s about creating a curated space with pieces that combine comfort and style, function and flair.
When it comes to decorating a home, there are few things more intimidating than standing in an empty room and not knowing where to start. There are so many things to consider—personal aesthetic, lifestyle, budget and more—but the best way to begin is with the furniture layout. In other words, determining the arrangement of sofas, chairs, tables, storage cabinets and anything else that is involved in the room’s floor plan (any item that touches the floor). We’ve compiled a simple guide to follow that works for every room in the house, starting with the living room.
To do so, include a series of comfortable chairs that face away from the walls and toward each other, with a shared coffee table at the center. To maintain that sense of ease mentioned by Shea Homes, this configuration is ideal for spaces that have a single entry point, with all sofa or chair backs positioned safely against walls and corners.
