Turn your Living Room into a Social Space in 2013

Turn your Living Room into a Social Space in 2013

A gorgeous sofa will really help vamp up the social factor in your living room.

A living room is not just a room in which to relax after a long day. It is also a place designed to entertain friends and as a result it needs to be welcoming, comfortable and stylish. Here are a few tips that will help you to create a truly fabulous living room.

Sofa Styles

With so many designs to choose from, deciding on a sofa is not as simple as you may think. However, with a little bit of research, it is easy to discover your options. Years ago, the only option was a three piece living room suite but today the possibilities are endless.

If your living room is large, you may want to consider adding a number of upholstered arm chairs to complement your sofa. If you entertain guests regularly, you will need more seating to ensure that you can cater for all of your friends. Popular sofa styles today include classic Chesterfields, shabby chic designs, contemporary modular styles and more. You can buy a Florence Knoll Sofa from Lovers Lounge and take advantage of unique sofa designs to complement a range of living room decor styles.

Social Seating

When planning your living room design, seating is paramount. The seating for your living room must be pretty yet practical, with comfort being the main factor to consider. You and your guests will be spending a considerable amount of time relaxing on your sofa ,and for this reason you may want a luxurious option that complements your budget. A sofa is a major investment, but it is worth opting for a high quality sofa over a cheaper model. This way you can be sure that it will stand the test of time and be able to withstand the daily wear and tear your living room will experience.

Seating Arrangement

You may have the most comfortable seating in your living room, but if it is not arranged correctly this can affect the dynamic of the room significantly. A Chaise Lounge is perfect for when you have a house full of guests to entertain, as they not only make a stunning addition to the room, but are close to the ground as to not obstruct anyone’s view. Take advantage of window seating if it applies in your living room, and ensure you have enough side tables to go around.

Create a Striking Centrepiece

Your seating is the main aspect to consider when you are entertaining in your living room, but it is also advised to create a centerpiece for your seating arrangement. A large table with a vase of flowers is a popular option,  because it is not only beautiful, it’s also the perfect place to put drinks and nibbles, too.

  1. We’re in the market for a new couch as our current one has a broken leg and we just haven’t figured out what style we want for the space we have yet. Thanks for this helpful info!

    • Good luck, Maria, picking the perfect sofa. I hate when my favorite furniture wears out 🙁
