The way you approach your seating arrangements in your living room can have a huge impact on the room and how it is used. Ideally, your living room should be the sort of room where family and friends can relax. You want people to feel comfortable in your living room and you want it to give off a really sociable vibe.
The best way to achieve all of this is to arrange your seating in such a way that people can face one another when they sit down. L-shaped sofas are a great addition to the room because they immediate break up the linear arrangement that occurs when everyone has to sit facing the same way. Clearly, the position of your television will have a large say in your seating arrangements, but try and plan for those occasions when you are sitting around to chat rather than watch the box.
Sometimes a corner settee or L-shaped sofa looks a bit lost when it is the centre of a room, but you can counteract this effect with the inclusion of an appropriately sized rug. Rugs placed squarely inside the L-shaped bring the sofa into its own by setting up aesthetically pleasing interaction between the two features.
