Its okay to skip the sofa. Its a common assumption that a sofa is necessary to make a living room, well, a living room. However, a secret many designers will tell you is that the perfect sofa can bring together your vision, it doesn’t have to be the center of attention. By bringing together a mix of armchairs of the same color, fabric or style, you have a unique sitting area for get-togethers, or a peaceful Sunday afternoon. Arranging them in a circular fashion around a coffee table or ottoman. By selecting six similarly styled chairs you can arrange them parallel from each other to get the illusion of a sofa shape in your space: luxurious and unique
You can use statement pieces for that element of surprise. A designers secret used to make a room really stand out is incorporating a stand out statement piece. This is not only to delight but surprise. For a lot of reasons, a statement piece is perfect to bring your style aesthetic together. For keeping your space from being boring, serving to bring cohesion to the different elements while standing out and also to dramatically change the look of the room.
