What Houzz contributors are saying:
Choose the right coffee tableA coffee table will reinforce the rug as a focal point and provide a useful surface for books, drinks and nibbles.As a rule of thumb, it should be the same height as the seat cushions of your main sofa, or a little lower. The overall dimensions of the coffee table will depend on your room, but allow for a space of 30cm to 45cm between the coffee table and any seating around it.
Slim it downSofas come in all shapes, but most of them take up a huge amount of space. If your room is small, consider a slim design like this, which has a less bulky back support and arms, so has a smaller footprint. This sofa also has thin, tall legs, leaving the floor visible beneath it for an airy feel.A good trick is to move your sofa forward from the wall a few inches, which will create a flow of air around it and provide a greater sense of space.
