Living room furniture Monday, January 08th 2018.
– Armless sofas look sleek in small spaces, but they are not especially comfortable for lounging about. You may not have a tiny living room forever, and a sofa may last 10 years or more, so choose a sofa that is comfortable. Think of your sofa as an investment and then purchase less expensive accent furnishings.
– When purchasing accent chairs, think “light.” Anything with a heavy look or dark colors will feel huge in the room. Armless chairs, like slipper chairs, can be a good choice. Avoid anything with a tall backrest. Transparent chairs such as “ghost” chairs look great in small spaces.
– In a small space, choose furniture with clean lines so the eye won’t get stuck in one place – designer-speak for “keep it simple.” Overstuffed chairs and shabby chic slipcovers may overpower a small living room.
