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.
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.”
The key to a good furniture arrangement is all in the details—especially side tables and coffee tables. Consider your room size and furniture arrangement when choosing the right coffee table. Use round pedestal tables as side tables between chairs and sofas. The curves of round tables make them easier to navigate around. When space is tight, use nesting tables for flexible use when needed.
