Different ways of placing the sofas

The way we place the sofa in the room it is very important since it will be the fundamental axis of our living room, due to its large size it tends to order the space around it. Therefore, it is advisable to know the different options that exist to place our armchairs at home according to the uses we give them and the shape of the space where they are placed to have a harmonious and useful decoration.

  • Facing sofas: This type of situation is suitable for large spaces and especially for wide and square rooms. It creates a perfect symmetrical decoration for houses where long gatherings are held since being placed one in front of the other favors communication.
  • Sofas arranged in a «U» shape: This distribution, like the previous one, is perfect to favor long gatherings and is suitable for large rooms. It can be done by combining two facing armchairs and a chaise lounge or armchair to close the "U", or an "L" sofa and a normal sofa.
  • A sofa and an armchair: For long and narrow rooms, it is best to place a single sofa on one of the longest sides of the room and place an armchair or pouf on one side.
  • Sofas arranged in an «L» shape: This distribution is quite well suited to any type of room, whatever its size or shape. It can be done by placing two sofas perpendicular or by combining a sofa and two armchairs. This distribution can also be created with a corner sofa or an armchair with chaise longue included. It is a perfect distribution to separate two environments within the same room and to promote gathering.
