There’s the couch, comfortable and large enough to seat everyone in the family. Then there’s the accent furniture that makes the space pop.

It’s all about the personality and the pieces you gather in the space. We polled our Freshome team to find out which pieces are absolutely critical in a dream living room and which can make all the difference when it comes to your design.

It is the place where people are drawn to sit, as well as the piece of furniture that you are likely to point toward your main focus. Whether that focus is a television or a fireplace, your sofa will likely face it. There are a number of sofa options to choose from. The most traditional of which is the classic sofa. This is a standard in most living rooms and typically offers seating for three persons comfortably. This kind of sofa comes in a wide variety of styles, materials, and designs and is often very easy to reupholster.

And in our dream living room, the coffee table itself serves as a piece of decor. Go beyond the basic and look for a coffee table that will add a level of interest to your room

Many times, living spaces become somewhat of a "catch all" for belongings, toys, and other random things. By providing a place for some of these items to be stored, you can help to alleviate some of the eye-sore factor that comes with a cluttered mess. If you have wall space, consider adding a bookshelf for storage. You can use the lower shelves for larger items contained in baskets or bins and the higher shelves can be reserved for lighter items like books or accent decor. You can also utilize floor space by selecting a coffee table that doubles as a storage ottoman, which can be a home to a wide variety of random items.

Doing so breaks down all the white and brings a focal point to the room. Focal points are always good and interesting. Choose a bold hue such as blue, red, yellow or green or use accent chair in one of those shades. If you want to add an intricate touch without adding color, texture is the way to go. The easiest way to do just that is to add a rug. Rugs are great for added décor and they come in multiple different colors, designs, patterns, and textures. You can pretty much use any rug you desire and bring the area back to life.

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.

It depends on two things: the main color palette in the room and how much you’re planning on using your sofa. You should choose a color that matches with the rest of your living room unless you want it to really stand out. By choosing a color that fits into the existing palette, you can achieve harmony for your room.

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.”

At furniture stores, we sit and lie down on the samples to check their quality and how comfortable they are. Little do we realize that a sofa’s upholstery is really one of its most important elements.

While some people enjoy the perpetual flicker of a flat screen television, others would rather spend their leisure time in conversation with friends and family. For a more social space, it is a good idea to place your furniture with people as your focal point, i.e. in a circle or parallel setup where everyone can see each other. Shea Homes, an online furnishing resource adds, “Make your guests as comfortable as possible by allowing them to sit in a seat where their backs are not facing an open space or door. Research has shown that this position can help lower blood pressure and make people feel more at ease.”
