I’ve had a home for a really long time, and believe it or not, I’ve never owned a coffee table. It's not that I didn't want one or need one. I just never found just the right coffee table that I wanted. Maybe I´ve procrastinated too long, now. I am still looking.
Selecting the wrong color for your fabric can also be a serious mistake. It is always a good idea to bring a swatch home to look at it in relation to all your other furnishings, wall color, and light. Always choose a color you like and can live with. Don’t pick colors based on trends or just a whim. You will have to live with that color choice for years.
Facing the mantel - In most rooms where there's a mantel, the mantel is the focal point. Since you always want to place furniture so that it faces the focal point. across from a mantel is the perfect place to put a sofa. Across from another sofa - Since visual balance is so important, there´s no better place to put a sofa than facing another (preferably matching) sofa. In small rooms, this isn´t usually possible, but in larger rooms where space can accommodate, it‘s a layout worth considering.
