The sofa is the center of any living room, the furniture piece around which the whole décor is being created. It’s why it has to perfectly integrate in the room. The color is very important. The color you choose for the sofa can either match the rest of the décor in its general lines or it can coordinate with certain key elements. It can also be the one piece that stands out without having to match anything.
The sofa is the biggest piece in any living room, so it's the first thing that needs to be placed. Sometimes you can walk into a room and it seems obvious where the sofa should go, but in other rooms, it's not so easy. As a general rule the sofa should be facing the focal point, but if there's no natural focal point what do you do? Here are some sofa placement tips to help you figure it out.
If you want the sofa to stand out from the rest of the room’s décor but you still want to somehow rely to it, you can choose a color that’s complementary to the accent shades you’ve used throughout the room. For example, here we have a green sofa. It has two red lamps flanking it on the sides and a painting with red background placed just above it.
Anytime you're arranging furniture you have to think about balance. When too many visually heavy things are on one side of the room the entire space looks unbalanced. Since sofas tend to be large in scale they take up quite a bit of visual space, and they require something of equal weight across from them to balance out the room. This is why you often see two chairs placed directly across from a sofa. Together the chairs balance out the weight of the sofa.
