When arranging living room furniture, there’s no need to crowd; leave room for traffic and an entry drop spot. Cozy key seating pieces up to the fireplace facing each other. Use end tables as landing spaces on both ends of the sofa. Pair chairs to balance the visual weight of the sofa and to maximize seating. The living room furniture arrangement should account for visiting guests, but still feel cozy when it is only you and your family.
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.”
Another option for sofas is the sectional sofa. This type of sofa is larger and often comes in multiple pieces. Sectionals offer significantly more seating than a standard sofa. While they are a bit harder to arrange than a standard sofa, they can still be quite stylish and comfortable. Some even come with an attached chaise lounge.
