A large family will need a sizeable sofa and a couple of armchairs at least to make sure everyone has somewhere comfortable to sit. If space is tight, beanbags and poufs are a smart way to sneak in extra seating, and can be stowed away easily at times when there are fewer people in the house. If you like to entertain in your living room, it’s a good idea to have a few lightweight side chairs that can be moved into more sociable arrangements when people come to visit. Small side tables or nesting tables are another handy addition, giving guests a place to perch their drinks.
In these cases, Warnock recommends versatile furniture, touting the convenience of an adjustable recliner or an ottoman, which “can serve as a place to put your feet up or act as extra seating as needed.” If you take a look at the examples, you’ll see the furniture in a perpendicular orientation, sufficiently spaced from the wall as to provide comfortable walking space while simultaneously drawing your attention to the window.
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.
