If you are lucky enough to have one of those great big houses with spacious living room, you may not know how to organize the seats. Many living rooms have a central point around which the furniture is placed. In the large living rooms, you need to create two focal points. These focal points will depend on your interests and architectural elements of the room.

If your living room has a fireplace, this will be the center of the room. Improve it colorful paintings hanging on the mantel, ordering interesting art objects on it or placing pieces of sculpture in the fireplace. Define this area by placing two sofas facing each other or in an L-shape around a coffee table with casual comfortable chairs on the opposite side.
If your living room has large windows with views or a gazebo overlooking the garden, make this the second focal point for your seating area. You can create a conversation area or adding a cocktail bar on the wall and placing large club chairs looking out on a low table.
Areas defined activities
Create a musical seating area with a baby grand piano as the focal point, and sofas and chairs for your guests when touches. The furniture can be turned the other area for conversation. The discerning wine can place a “wine cellar” as the second focal point of the area and provide seating restaurant to taste the wines. Avid readers will want to install libraries in one end of the room and provide comfortable-looking chairs, occasional tables and adequate lighting for quiet reading and discussing books.
Ways to define areas
Arrange the furniture to define the different areas making the sofa or the backs of the chairs are against each other. Add a desk compartment or just put a nice old upholstered bench between the two areas. Area rugs are essential for delimiting areas. Use plants in large pots or decorative screens as space dividers. Applies touches coordinated with pillows or art, for the cohesion of the two colors. Leave enough space between the areas specified for easy navigation.
