Once the seating area has been set (around the focal point), placing tables and storage cabinets is next. In a living room, the main coffee table or ottoman can be placed in the middle of the sofas and chairs. It’s best to allow 18 inches between a coffee table and sofa so drinks and the tv remote are within reach. Sofa tables are long, narrow tables that go behind a sofa, against its back. Side tables go next to the armchairs and on either side of the sofa. Be sure to allow at least 30 inches between furniture pieces in places where people need to pass through.
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.
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.
