Living Room / February 13, 2018 / Laurette Gautier.
The room set above – featuring stylish pieces from Interiors – is a great example of asymmetric symmetry with furniture arranged to balance rather than mirror. The two club chairs are placed precisely across from the modular sofa, as are the two padded stools, so the overall look is neat and contained.
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.
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.
When a sectional sofa is your primary seating, you might be tempted to push it into the corner of the room and call it a day. But this can feel claustrophobic, especially to those people seated on the deepest cushions. Pull it away from the wall to let light and air flow around it. Place a brightening lamp or slender console table at the back, and put any other seating in position to see people seated at both ends of the L. When used in a narrow living room layout, it can be an easy barrier to add a section function to the space: a toy room, a craft table, or a pool table.
