Once inside your front door, the first room your guests and family members are likely to encounter is your living room. You host gatherings in your living room, snack on the couch while watching TV, listen to children practice musical instruments, and just generally hang out in this multifunctional space. The way you design your living room can set the design feel for your entire home. You may also change your living room décor at various times of the year for different holidays and seasons.
In minimalist fashion this curved contemporary sofa turns into itself, creating its own conversation arc. Sofas like this one, and other shaped sofas, usually take up more space than average. This example is about 11 feet (335 cm) long and needs a total depth of about 54 in. (137 cm). The Womb chair opposite it measures 40 in. (102 cm) wide and 34 in. (86 cm) deep, while its ottoman is 25½ in. (66 cm) wide and 20 in. (51 cm) deep. The nicely balanced furniture placement complements the off-center fireplace.
This illustration shows several pieces of furniture commonly found in a living room. Your requirements will vary, but the principles are the same. You want the room to flow around the furniture for circulation and also have clear paths to the seating areas and exit points. Circulation paths need 30 to 36 in. (77 to 91 cm) of clear width. You can place coffee or cocktail tables as close as 12 in. (30 cm) from the edge of the seating. Other furnishings might need at least 24 in. (61 cm) between pieces for people to easily move about. Another important consideration is the conversation arc. Place furniture so that people can easily hear one another when seated. Eight feet (244 cm) is ideal; larger rooms may need to be broken into seating groups.
Try floating pieces in the center of the room, and be sure to maintain a consistent color palette and style, so the space feels harmonious. Throw some into the mix, so guests can pull up a seat when they want to join a group.
