How to / arrange furniture in your living room

When arranging furniture in the living room there are a few elements that need to be taken into consideration the main one being the shape of the room followed by: focal point, purpose and orientation.
Once we have the above elements sorted the rest will fall into place fairly naturally.
If your room doesn't have an architectural focal point like a fireplace or a view, you can easily create your own with furniture, artwork, a feature wall or a flower arrangement - anything at all that has an interesting colour, shape or texture. The focal point should be the first thing you see when you enter the room and the furniture should be arranged around it. Start by placing the biggest piece directly across from it and the other furnishings around your main piece. Use contrasting colours, add interest to the room via accessories and personal touches like photographs and art, add a touch of metallic (with vases or a lamp base) to complete the look. Move things around to suit your needs if necessary, if the room is a multipurpose room, buy multipurpose furniture and leave corners free of clutter. Colour and accessories can be changed each season is desired and art can be on rotation to ensure that the scheme is well coordinated. If the view is your focal point arrange some furniture towards the widows to take full advantage of it, open up and let the outdoors in as much as possible, create a good flow between inside and out, entertain outdoors in spring, summer and autumn and install good lighting to enhance it and enjoy it all year around.
