Living Room / June 8, 2018 / Laurette Gautier.
A traditional and popular living room furniture layout idea is the face-to-face stance. Two sofas (or a sofa and a pair of chairs) sit directly across from one another, with the focal point at one end. Positioning the seating this way facilitates conversation because no one has a direct view of the focal point. It's useful when activities such as reading, working on a laptop, or listening to music are just as important as watching television.
Real wood flooring, exposed bricks, interior wood wall cladding and a real fire or stove will make for a gorgeous room that is undeniably connected to nature and the outside world, which is what rustic aesthetics are all about. You could definitely look to include some wools, felt and leather too.
If you want a living room with a difference, it definitely can't hurt to embrace a striking piece of wall art as your main focal point. Here, thanks to an understated sofa and neutral colour scheme, all eyes are firmly on the art and that in itself alludes to a real gallery feel.
In terms of living room ideas, UK homes often seek to use traditional design motifs, particularly in period homes that wouldn't look quite right with anything else. There's a real time and a place for classic and sophisticated recognisable tropes of interior design and older homes with a little history are most definitely the right location.
