Arranging Furniture in the Living Room – Part 1: Focal Points

Christine Blythe, Senior Creator, Designer and owner of Decor to Your Door, discusses how focal points affect the arrangement of furniture in the living room.

A TV wall, a fireplace, a beautiful picture window – all examples of focal points. What do you do when you have all three? You have to choose one over the other or you have to consolidate. This is why the trend these days is to install televisions over fireplace mantles. It allows the focal point on to one wall. Second point to that would be to arrange furniture so that traffic patterns do not cut through seating areas – especially when people are watching television. This will keep the conversation area cozy and intimate.
