Finding Your Focal Point

One Room, Three Ways
Get Inspired

Fans of the Fireplace

A fireplace makes for a fabulous focal point, so consider providing everyone with either a view of it or a spot next to it. This arrangement does just that, and it creates the perfect visual balance on both sides of the fireplace. To tie the pieces together, position your area rug so that the sofa and fireplace face its longer sides. This will eliminate that "landing strip" look while visually establishing a conversation area.

Scene-Stealing Setup

If being comfy in front of the TV is your idea of the perfect living room, then try an arrangement that's all about the entertainment. The furniture in this setup provides ultimate comfort for every family member, and with just a turn of the accent chairs toward the TV, you instantly have extra seating for movie night! To help define the seating area, try placing the area rug underneath the front feet of the furniture.

Best of Both Worlds

If you find your family torn between a great view of the TV and the warm flicker of the fireplace, this smart setup will keep everyone happy. Not only does it let you float between focal points, but it's conversation friendly, too! A sofa table serves as a nice room divider, and it provides a place to display decorative accents or a table lamp. Alternatively, substitute a sectional for your sofa so everyone has room to stretch out.
