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.
