At Martin Fine Furniture, we take the challenge out of purchasing new living room sets and arranging them beautifully. We sell all types of furniture for the living room or front room. We have been a family-owned company for four generations, offering quality products and custom orders. We offer all the name brands you desire in a wide variety of styles.
You'll want your living room to be aesthetically pleasing and welcoming to guests, while also reflecting your personal style and matching the overall architectural elements of your home. The new furniture should complement your existing decor. Stick with the same general theme and purchase coordinating pieces. First, begin with the basic necessities. The sofa, side chair, center table, and end table will be the integral components that make up your living room set.
In addition to the main pieces, consider other furniture that will be functional and help organize the space. For instance, an entertainment center to house your video and audio equipment is something to consider. Cabinets and consoles may also help add functionality and added table space.
When determining the layout of your furniture, you may want to first draw a diagram of your desired floor plan to see how all the elements will fit together. However you decide to arrange your living room furniture, your sofa and chairs should be facing the focal point for a good viewing angle at an adequate distance, whether it's a flat screen TV or fireplace. For ease of conversation, don't space the sofa and chairs too far apart.
When arranging your living room, you'll want to have accessible pathways. Keep entryways clear for a non-cluttered look. Be sure there are several feet of space to walk comfortably in traffic areas. Also, if your furniture includes desks or cabinets, you should accommodate with extra space for functionality.
