Living Room / April 9, 2018 / Laurette Gautier.
An asymmetrical scheme avoids such exacting repetition, and relies on balancing the look with items of a similar size or visual weight, texture and colour. It’s less obvious – and more casual – than a formal scheme, but still feels well thought through.
A room will feel more comfortable and inviting if it has a focal point, whether that’s an architectural feature, a fantastic view, an arresting piece of furniture, or artwork. The idea is that it draws the eye – it should be the first thing that’s noticed on entering a room - and if possible, furnishings should be arranged around it.
Practicalities must be considered, of course, and furnishings chosen to suit our lifestyle, but there’s more to it than that: as any interior designer will tell you, a great scheme depends on principles that might not be immediately obvious, but which, when successfully employed, make a world of difference not only to the look of a room, but to the way it makes you feel in it.
How to arrange living room furniture is up to you and your particular pieces. Most of us have a sofa and another chair or two, which we can position and reposition as often as we like. When trying out new living room arrangements, make sure to allow enough space between furniture corners so people can swish past in search of a comfy spot. And give everyone a reachable drink rest, even if it's just a stack of books on the ottoman.
