One of the secrets to learning how to arrange furniture is making sure you leave enough space between pieces. Allow 30 inches between furniture you need to be able to walk around and 14 to 18 inches between a coffee table and sofa, so drinks are within reaching distance. This should still be held true when planning a large living room furniture arrangement, because if a piece of furniture is too far away, it may look like it is floating in the room without purpose.
If you are not sure how to arrange furniture in a living room, orient seating so it takes advantage of whatever view your room has to offer, whether it is a TV or a bank of windows. Create your own focal point by hanging a large piece of art on a wall or create a vignette of favorite objects on a console or bookshelf. If you can not decide between arranging the furniture around the fireplace or the TV, choose both and mount the TV above the fireplace.
Give the space a cozy feel and tie the living room together with area rugs. Position a floor lamp near the reading chair and accent end tables with a table lamp or two. Finally, round out the look with small home accessories, such as candles, botanicals and artwork. Drape decorative pillows and cozy throws over sofa and chair arms for form and function. Fill blank wall space above the living room furniture with prints, mirrors and framed family photos for a personal touch.
