It never ceases to amaze me how MUCH the simple re-arranging of furniture can inject a little bit of HAPPY into your day!
for years….I have wanted to do the “2 identical sofas facing each other” thing in our living room…but there were a few barriers. ONE – I did not have two identical sofas
… and TWO – with the sofas above -one has its back to the pocket doors… making it feel less open. So this L shape worked. THEN – I got two identical sofas and we kept the “L” shape…
So our LIVING ROOM ARRANGEMENT WAS AN “L” SHAPE…
THEN…. last week…I decided…”You know what! ..I piece by piece – like a GIANT TETRIS game…rearranged the living room and VOILA!!!
I LOVE IT!!!
Lets face it- quite often – what dictates the seating arrangement is the DURN TV…and Often, the placement of windows or door or window AND doors…add further restrictions to the furniture arrangement. Lets look at some of the possible LIVING ROOM CONFIGURATIONS….
I have gotten used to having our sofas and seating OFF the wall…but often that is not an option and to utilize every inch of space means having the furniture up against the walls. I am BIG fan of the SOFA TABLE…I find it easier to set things on a table than an end table…which often can get a mite crowded. I love a round coffee table …but a long coffee table is also great for maximum placement space.
THIS IS MY FAVE CONFIGURATION
CARLA AND I are also not big fans of the SOFA / LOVESEAT combination which can feel a little like a “sofa set” and prefer two chairs and a sofa if space is an issue.
the TWO SOFA – design also allows of something special (NOT THE TV) to take focus – like our mirror or this ART below.
here are some more beautiful Living rooms….with so many different lay outs…
