Interior designers' advice

How to lift your living room with the perfect sofa and armchairs

Your sofa and armchairs should be the first things you choose for your living room because they take centre stage. The rest of the room is organised around them, so ask our interior design experts about the best way to create your dream living room.

What type of sofa and armchairs do you prefer?

You need to take a number of factors into account when choosing your sofa: the size of your living room, the number of people you want to seat, how you will use it and your decor. You can either place your sofa in front of your television or your fireplace. Both work equally well but the feel will be slightly different. You should also take the proportions of your room into account. It's always better to choose a sofa that's exactly the right size and add an armchair or two. This will help your living room feel cosy and sociable rather than cluttered.

Consider different layout options

If you opt for a corner sofa, you can place it against a wall if your room is large enough, or in the middle of the room to break it up. Your armchairs should reflect the style of your sofa. They should either be in similar colours or brighter if you want a more vibrant look.

"Your sofa and armchairs are the heart and soul of your living room. Whether you prefer bright or pastel shades, the idea is to combine different colours tastefully. The result will be a stylish, welcoming living room."
Julie, Gautier designer
