Living Room / June 22, 2018 / Francis Raoul.
A formal symmetrical scheme forms the basis of traditional interior design and is easy to achieve: if you were to draw a line down the middle of a room, one side would simply mirror the other, right down to the accessories or finishing touches. It’s a considered approach, though it does take discipline to keep it in order, and needs strong visual elements to stop it from appearing bland.
Based around natural materials, muted colours and pretty patterns, Scandinavian living rooms have a very relaxed and chic vibe. Natural wood will usually play a central role and add to a very warm and comfortable look.
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.
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.
