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.
If your living room is your main TV room, it goes without saying that seating needs to be positioned to give a good view of the television, and that it isn’t so far away that viewers need to squint. Living rooms without a TV give you the freedom to choose a more aesthetically pleasing focal point, whether it’s a period fireplace, an ornate mirror or a statement coffee table. If you do have a TV but don’t want it on show when you’re not watching it, you can always hide it away behind the doors of an attractive TV cabinet.
Spice up a space with furniture and decor that provide different textures. Area rugs and accent pillows are a great way to add a touch of texture. Combine a few different textures to give the room character but try not to combine too many varieties as it can be tiresome to your guests eyes (not to mention, take you off your intended look/tone/feel for the room). If you are looking for a more relaxed look, consider adding a soft throw or a floral centerpiece to your table.
