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.
Floor lamps take the place of side tables, so the coffee table should come within arm’s reach so guests can set drinks down. There are some floor lamp designs that come with a table attached as well. Table lamps are self-explanatory—just make sure they don’t take up the entire table top. Chandeliers should be centered above the main seating area, or flush-mount fixtures make sense anywhere on the ceiling since they don’t hang down. Spot lighting can call attention to art works, sculptures or library built-ins as well.
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.
