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.
One of the most common uses of a living room is to watch television, and so it is important to orient your furniture in a manner that gives everyone a comfortable viewing experience. Cindy Warnock, former director of design at Western Contract in Sacramento, insists that, “With the television up against the wall, it’s good to have a lot of cushioned seating surrounding it, like recliners, L-shaped sofas and maybe a loveseat. A cushioned coffee table is also a good idea, so you can put your feet up if need be.”
One necessity of any living room is having a place to set things down. End tables and coffee tables are an integral part of living rooms as they create the space to place things and can be a great asset for design aspects. To keep the room from being too cluttered, it is important to have the tables placed in strategic places and to be of the correct size and style. Typically, end tables are placed to the side of a chair or sofa. Coffee tables are usually found in front of the primary seating or between pieces of furniture.
