Let Your Living Room Furniture Show Your Style
The modern-day living room is a far cry from the parlours or sitting rooms of previous eras. Whereas the latter were often reserved for formal social occasions or receiving guests, living rooms of today serve many different purposes for homeowners and their families, ranging from escaping the hustle-and-bustle of daily life to actually being the centre of activity and entertainment in the home.
Notwithstanding its primary use, today’s living room must provide the ultimate in comfort, and its décor should also reflect the personality of the homeowner. Carrocel fine furniture offers a striking collection of high-end living room sofas, tables, and accent seating in an inspiring array of styles, colours, and materials that will undoubtedly satisfy the preferences of homeowners throughout Toronto and area.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q1. How do I make my living room attractive?
Here’s how to make sure your living room is always cozy and attractive.
Position Your Sofa
As the largest piece of living room furniture, having your sofa in the right spot can make a huge difference. Ideally, position it so that it faces the door. If it faces away from the entrance, add a console table behind it with art books or lamps, so it looks inviting.
Create a Focal Point
A focal point draws attention and gives the eye a place to rest while also grounding the room and defining its function. Your anchor could be anything from a fireplace, flat-screen TV, light fixture, or a great view.
Get in Balance
Balance the room from top to bottom, so there is something to look at from floor to ceiling. This could be a mirror, wall art, tall plants, high back chairs etc.
Soften Your Space
The last step is to add accessories to your living room furniture, such as a soft blanket, oversized pillows or a throw. This will make the room feel inviting.
Q2. How can I decorate my living room if I don’t have a couch?
- Use a statement chair to compensate for the lack of a sofa visually
- Have wingback chairs in an accent colour
- Add more surfaces with armchairs and a glass oversized coffee table
- Make use of the extra space by adding a living room/dining area
- Use big lounge chairs as a substitute for a sofa
- Bring in modern chairs
- Invest in a statement vintage or antique armchair
Q3. How Do I Arrange Living Room Furniture in a Small Living Room?
All spaces pose design challenges, but a small living room can be quite a tricky challenge to pull off – but not impossible. The easiest way to arrange such a small living room is to use multifunctional living room furniture. Given the small space, each piece of living room furniture should earn its place. For example, an ottoman that also doubles as a coffee table justifies its place. The same with nesting side tables or versatile stools that can be moved around and used as seats for tables.
