Living Room / July 1, 2018 / Laurette Gautier.
This arrangement from Andrew Martin, featuring the Cadogan sofa, is simple, uncluttered and arresting, not only because of its symmetry, but because of the different textures that are brought into play.
With such a large window here, the living room itself almost plays second fiddle to the view, which works terrifically well. Understated colours and minimal furniture is elegantly lit by the natural light that pours in and helps to create a space that is really inspired by the natural world outside.
Show off your key focal point by framing it appropriately painting a wall a strong colour is the perfect backdrop for, say, striking artwork, a dramatic mirror, or display. Consider lighting, too this should be arranged to show off your chosen focal point to best advantage so that it doesn’t get ‘lost’ once night falls… and of course, there’s no reason why a fabulous light fixture, such as a sparkling chandelier or dramatic pendant, shouldn’t be the star, too.
The most basic and functional living room furniture layout is to place the sofa across from the focal point with all other pieces angled to face the same direction. This allows everyone a good look at the television or crackling fire. When entertaining, round the grouping into a conversational circle by adding ottomans or pillow poufs that face back at the sofa. These additional seating options make it easier to figure out how to arrange a living round with the TV as the focal point.
