What does the room look like? Is it rectangular? Open plan? Understanding where your couch is going to live will make it easier to place. For example, if the space in question has curved walls, placing a couch with a straight frame against the wall will feel abrupt. Look at placing your couch 1-2m away from the curved wall to create intentional space around the couch.
Positioning your furniture towards a focal point can help to bring cohesiveness to the space. Do you want your couch to face a window, a media unit, another couch even? The focal point sets the overall tone and defines the purpose of the space.
You don’t have to choose – your home can be functional and stylish at the same time. When positioning your couch, find a place that will encourage conversation, create space, and allow your other furniture to shine.
We love putting a couch against a wall, but sometimes the space doesn’t call for it. Utilising a wall in this way also means that you don’t have the option to place a console or extra lighting behind your couch. Don’t be afraid to position 2 couches in the centre of a room or perpendicular to one another for a high-end, space-friendly arrangement. It’s easy! Find the couch, define the space, determine the focal point, and sit back and relax. You can also shop our range of throws, scatter cushions, and vases to style your perfectly positioned couch!
