Uncramp Your Style

When every inch counts, it pays to be selective and thoughtful about the furniture you choose. Start by determining what goals you have for your space—will your living area simply be a place to hang out with friends, or do you need it to serve as a workspace as well? Will you be hosting dinner parties, or will a table for two suffice for your mealtime needs? Make a list and prioritize your goals to find the pieces that are best suited to meet your needs.

A natural place to start your furniture search is with small-scale pieces. For sofas, target those in the range of 75–85 inches in length to comfortably sit two to three people in a reduced footprint. A loveseat can also work as your main source of seating if your apartment is especially cramped. Several of the loveseats available at Raymour & Flanigan measure in at only 56 inches long, which is almost two feet shorter than most small sofas.

In lieu of a matching chair, consider a slipper chair or a similar armless accent chair to complete your room (no arms = clear sight lines). Along with its space-conscious design, the chair's print is a great opportunity to add contrast in a proportion that won't overwhelm your space. For your coffee and end tables, take a look at rounded pieces. Just by doing away with a few corners, you can improve the flow and openness of your room. Glass-top coffee and end tables go a step further in opening things up, thanks to their light, airy look.
