Place your furniture according to your space requirement. Your living room might be rectangle, square, octagon or triangle. Whatever the shape is, just make sure you have good furniture placement so that the place will have good traffic. You can place your sofa in a diagonal position and you may even experiment the arrangement in different angles. Traffic is very important to make sure that homeowners can move around the place without stumbling into anything. Your furniture pieces should be arranged well to have good traffic. You can place your furniture in right angles for this will make it easier to converse with other people in the area.
Most Victorian furniture has ornate wooden carved embellishments with rich fabrics. You can also use seating pieces that are upholstered in brocade, velvet and embroidered. Add some throw pillows with attractive covers. Choose furniture with exposed wood in some parts like on the arm rest, legs and along the upper back of the chair. Use a table that is carved, marble topped, spindled or faux bamboo. You can accent it with traditional-style lamps and porcelain jars with crocheted doilies under it. For a more classical look, place a bookcase that can fill from floor to ceiling.
For your living room, choose warm and neutral colors. Give it a unique texture by using faux. Choose colors that will look best as an accent. You can use bright colors for your living room. Just make sure that the colors won't mismatch. It is better to have an open space for your living room. You can arrange your furniture in a central island if you have enough space. In the corner, you can place a tall plant or a sculpture. A more open space can allow better traffic. It could look better and lighter, too.
