Key to a well designed home is the Furniture Placement.

Make the most of your home's living space by learning how to arrange living room furniture smartly. There are 3 things to keep in mind when arranging a living room... the flow, function and focal points.

~ Flow: Have a good understanding for the traffic patterns getting in, out and through the room. Keep traffic pattern sensible and accessible for the best use of space. 

~ Function: If it's used for both socializing and relaxing, create cozy seating groups. If your living room is used for TV watching and family game nights, arrange seating towards the television and include a coffee table or large ottoman for spreading out games.

~ Focal Points: Fixed elements such as a fireplace or a bay window also affect furniture placement. Arrange furniture to take advantage of a beautiful view or a cozy fireplace. Arrange a living room perfectly by reflecting on the room's features and your lifestyle.
