So we put the couch directly across from the TV as that’s where most of the viewing is going to happen tip number three is you want to think about sight lines. So when you come into the space what do you see. So for instance in this space when you walk into it you see the couch and that’s going to determine again the flow of the other things that go in it. So we’ve decided on your TV you’ve decided if your couch or chair person you want to make sure that the sight lines work well within that now you want to think about mixing in your chairs. So in this case we have a couch and we mixed in chairs throughout the living room my tips were mixing the couch and the chairs is you want to think a little bit in different colors and different fabrics. So for instance this is a really light colored couch and in the chairs we chose there a darker color and a different fabric like we actually have a leather one as well the next thing you want to think about is your tables. So if you’re sitting on the couch you’re watching TV you want to think about your coffee table in your side tables you can see what we’ve done here is replaced a round coffee table in this living room but it’s more towards the center of the room.
So we play smaller tables on either side of the couch. So it’s easy access for your drink or whatever you have and my last tip is traffic flow. So you want to make sure you can actually walk around the that you can get up from the couch that you can move around the coffee table move around the side table and move around the chairs.
