4 Tips for

Furniture Arrangement

In all my years as an interior designer, I am asked more questions about furniture arranging than anything else. So here are a few suggestions you might consider when facing the “furniture placement dilemma”!
1. Place large furniture pieces first
It’s definitely a mistake to start with your smaller pieces. I guarantee your frustration level will increase if you try to start the process with small tables and accent pieces. 
2. In rooms with vaulted ceilings, place large furniture pieces close to the highest wall
Furnishings such as oversized entertainment armoires immediately come to mind. Can you visualize a large entertainment center placed on a small wall opposite a high wall in a vaulted room? Balance and symmetry would immediately fly out the window. 
3. Try angling your furniture
When your furniture pieces – chairs, sofas, love seats are all lined up flat against a wall, you lose the opportunity to create interesting conversational groupings, not to mention the fact that your room would resemble an office waiting area! 
4. When selecting furniture for smaller rooms, follow these rules of thumb:
  • Pieces with round corners will work best
  • Don’t select large or oversized pieces
  • Try to find case goods that are tall and shallow to give your small space more height
  • Open shelving styles will help your space seem more expansive
  • Opt for a more custom furniture or tailored look in upholstered pieces

IN THE NEWS:

Watch for my article in the Morning Call featuring “hygge, lagom and cosagach” design elements. These are Northern Europe words that refer to cozy nooks and clean thoughtfully designed spaces.

Upcoming Events:

High Point Market 2018 is coming up in October. The hottest new styles and products will be available for view. And samples will be in to see.

Speaker Opportunities:

If your group or gathering needs a fun speaker, or if you would like to host a “Design and Wine” event. I would be glad to tailor a talk to your group. We always have a ton of fun and door prizes too.
