So a semi-circular furniture configuration around the hearth, with no more than 8 feet in between seats, promotes easy interaction with family and friends. For living rooms with neither a hearth or a television, a central focal point makes the most sense. Float a sofa (or two, facing each other) around a coffee table, with chairs placed around the circle to close any gaps.
When creating your own rustic look, you have so many options to choose from. You can dress it up with antique chandeliers and romantic candles, or keep it simple with burlap accents and upcycled farm materials. If you balance your space just right, you may even be able to alternate between these two options simply by adding or removing a few accessories as the seasons change. However you approach your new rustic décor, remember to keep in mind how you want to feel in your new space. Also consider if you will be primarily hosting in this space, or if it will be a personal escape from the everyday.
This depends on the size of your living room and what the room is most commonly used for. Small living rooms may require you to place furniture against the walls to ensure there’s enough space for people to move about without sidling around chairs or banging their shins on the coffee table. Ideally you need at least 50cm between each piece of furniture to allow for optimum traffic flow.
