Do Something Different

Don’t be afraid to step away from "normal" living room setups when you re-envision your space. It’s easy to take a chance and do something different with our wide selection of upholstered chairs, coffee and end tables. Expand seating options with comfortable ottomans and stylish stools. Maximize your space with a bold new living room design.

Recenter Your Focus

Entertaining guests while watching the game can sometimes get complicated. You don’t want to ignore guests while being solely focused on the TV. Position seating areas in a way that is more focused on entertaining. Don't simply center your furniture around the TV. Multiple sitting areas using varying types of furniture create fun and unique spaces for guests to congregate. Games are always more fun with people, so design your space around people and the conversations, not the TV.

Find Unique Solutions

Don’t give up on finding the right seating for difficult spaces. Angle sofas are an ideal, trendy solution for bringing more seating to underutilized living rooms and awkward spaces. These statement pieces create an interesting look for your home while helping to further facilitate conversation. Additionally, multi-use seating solutions such as chaise lounges and oversized ottomans can add to the fluidity, function and style of your space.

Maximize Your Great Room's Greatness

Great rooms are just that, great for game day and gatherings. Separate living and dining spaces with smartly designed pieces to create a seamless transition from one room to the next. Having a well-defined dining space starts with the right table. From round to oval, reclaimed to polished, we have flexible dining options that fit your needs. Coffee and side tables help guests not miss a moment of the game. Play with different, but coordinating, textures and styles to create a home that is uniquely yours.

Add Texture, Color, and Patterns

Use a rug for touches of color and texture or for introducing trendy patterns to your space in a subtle way. Comfortable flooring provides space for kids and adults to stretch out and relax during those final, nail-biting moments of a game.

In the end, your house is yours. Designing your living room should be enjoyable not stressful. Don’t feel overwhelmed by the many options and choices available for transforming your entertainment space. Instead, feel empowered. The truth is there are multiple ways that you can maximize your living room’s potential. If you like it, use it. If it all just seems like too much, ask for help. Our team of passionate interior designers are here to help you make the most of your space for big game day weekends or entertaining on the regular.
