Unless you are stuck with a small living room, do not automatically push your sofa and all the rest of the furniture against the wall. This arrangement immediate creates a giant empty space in the middle and usually leaves the seating too far apart to be comfortable for conversation. Especially in a larger space, the sofa can help define the main area by moving toward the center of the space or to one side, depending on the configuration. Most designers feel running the furniture around the edges is a major no, no that lacks style and practicality. Even if the space is not big, adding a console between the wall and the sofa can add just enough space to change the feeling of the room. Rather than sitting along a wall, this sofa from Erba delineates the grouping and directed traffic flow between the sofa and the display units. This arrangement also helps highlight a spectacular sofa.
Balance in your furnishings is approached in two ways. The first is the pieces themselves. No matter what the style of the decor, you want a balance among the pieces to keep if from feeling too heavy or crowded. This living room is a good example because the sofa has a very hefty feel because the thick frame sits directly on the ground. The occasional tables on both sides are leggy, which balances out the heavier sofa. The style of the table lamp and the multi-light floor lamp also contribute a lighter feeling. The second way to consider balance in a space concerns the placement of furnishings and accessories as well as the size of the room. Big, heavy furnishings will never feel right in a small space and vice versa. How your furniture feels in the space in relation to the doorways, windows and any other architectural elements that are present is also key, and this comes down to placement. To remedy this, it usually takes just a little re arrangement.
