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.

Most people don´t want to ruin their sofas, but if you´re doing any of these things, that‘s exactly what will happen.

By combining the top of a table with cushions of an ottoman, you’ll get the comfort for resting your feet and the convenience of space to place items.

A photo gallery can allow you to create a really dramatic impact and it saves you from having to choose just one piece. Just remember when hanging pieces to create a gallery wall that all the items together will act as one unit. The center of the entire display should be at eye level. It's always best to plan this type of display before you start hanging. Place the pieces on the ground in front of the wall and play around with the arrangement until you find one that satisfies you. If space doesn't allow for this use graph paper.
