Rethink Your Furniture Arrangement, Part 1

Today is the day to bring your sofa off of the wall and try it out a different way. This week, we’re showing you ways to Rethink your furniture arrangement. You don’t have to settle for a sofa with an end table on either side and matching lamps! It’s time to think about your options (you have them, we promise!!).

Today, let’s chat about a little design term called Radial Symmetry. What this means is simply that your room is symmetrical from a central axis point. Take a look at this furniture layout, for example:

Four cozy chairs surround a round tufted ottoman. The lake view is still clear, because tall furniture pieces have been avoided and the pieces have been scaled in their width. The traffic pattern of this odd space is not interrupted because the seating is kept clustered around a circular ottoman (a coffee table would work as well).

Uncomfortable with round? No big deal. The same concept would work with pieces that feel a bit more rectilinear. Perhaps a longer rectangular ottoman would work between 4 of these chairs:

With a layout that displays Radial Symmetry, one key is utilizing pieces that are beautiful, even from behind. Choosing unique chairs that have just as much to offer from back as they do from the front will create a wow factor that invites people into your fun out of the box furniture arrangement.

Try it out and let us know how you do. Stay for more ideas all this week!

Accessories with Storage

We all want accessories in our home that both look good and are functional. Stylish magazine holders can add great texture and color to a room. Jewelry boxes or trees on your bathroom countertop would be a great accessory for any girl. Roll up some bright colored bath towels, placing them in baskets or trunks in your bathroom or use them for blankets in your family/TV room. Store your DVD’s in a basket verses metal stands.
