DECORATING IDEAS Arrange the Furniture

CUCCESSFUL furniture arrangement takes skill and imagination. It’s one of the most challenging and difficult tasks the amateur designer must handle. A beautiful color scheme, handsome furniture and well-designed backgrounds add up to nothing if the furniture itself is not arranged in a balanced and harmonious manner, if it does not provide the needed seating area, if it does not adequately utilize the space at hand.

The proper placement of furniture within a room is especially challenging these days when new high-rise apartments offer living rooms without the architectural focal point of a fireplace around which furniture can be placed with authority. Rooms are often long and narrow, or chopped up with odd openings and poorly-proportioned windows.

The custom today to position furniture in conversational groupings is a gracious solution to living room arrangement. Designers have surmounted the lack of a fireplace by creating their own focal points.

A large conversational grouping, set out in the center of the room, is often the best solution to a large square room without the focal point of a fireplace. Seating pieces in Bloomingdale’s living room are grouped around large glass coffee table, oriental rug.

A fascinating storage wall of bookcases and cabinets can serve this purpose, as can an interesting commode overscored by a mirror or large canvas. The grouping can be set out in the center of the room around the vibrant personality of a patterned accent rug and an unusually-styled, oversized coffee table. In one of the settings shown here, a designer planned a small indoor garden as the center of her furniture grouping. Another device is to dramatize the sofa by giving it unmatched end tables and the punctuation mark of a fascinating canvas above it.
