Place your living room furniture around the room in a way that promotes conversation and frames the fireplace. The exact placement of the furniture will depend on the room’s shape, size, your decor style and the formality of the room. An impressive fireplace can be the ideal focal point for a living room. Its architectural presence draws immediate attention, and it also has an important function, that is to provide comfortable warmth during the cold weather. It is no wonder it is a fantastic idea to have cozy seating next to the fireplace. After all, when there is a fireplace in the house, you want to be around it.
While integrated seating is ideal, some homeowners may want to invest in other seating plans around their fireplace. A large-scale coffee table can anchor the sofas and the chairs, or a nice vintage chartreuse leather wing chair adds a bit of glamour to the living area. You can alter the whole feel of the room just by adding a couple of tufted fireside chairs that can also make the look and feel of the place more welcoming and cozy. These are also pretty handy if you are entertaining a big group of people.
