Sectional Sofa Arrangement

A sectional sofa can be comfortable and very inviting. But these sofas are large, and may be a challenge to work with. Before purchasing one, measure carefully and make sure you have plenty of space to enter the room and walk around in it.

Rearranging the Furniture in a Victorian Living Room

When you walked into the entry of this lovely old Victorian, the first thing you saw was the back of a large sofa. A sofa can frequently be used to visually divide a large room into two separate areas. But in this case, you had to walk around it to get into the living room.

Creating a different furniture arrangement made all the difference in the world.

What Happened in this Room?

  • The sofa was moved out of the entry and placed perpendicular to the wall, dividing the living room from the dining room

  • You never want to butt the end of a sofa up against a wall, so we added a small end table with a lamp

  • The large matching chair was placed diagonally to the sofa, allowing access to the sunny window

  • The area rug was turned to better fit the floor shape created by the sofa and chair

  • The large coffee table was too much for this room, so it was removed

  • The ottoman can take the place of the coffee table, or can be moved around as needed

  • Finally, we popped the room with room with a touch of color, by adding a bunch of red flowers on a tray

  • Now you can see the best attributes of this room
    • The beautiful antique fireplace and authentic green marble surround
    • Lovely hardwood floors
    • Large open entry
