Do you have a small living room that does not seem possible to place a sofa or chair? Lately, it seems even in big houses, formal living rooms are getting smaller. Many of these guest rooms are designed so that all four sides have entrances, windows or televisions that make all sofa placement choices even more limited.
Or you might want a small home interior design with an open space plan. However, this concept makes it difficult to place even more items so that the back of the sofa is almost always facing more important items or furniture.
The question is, does the living room have to have a sofa and no other way? The good news is that there are no interior design laws that require a living room to accommodate a sofa. Some of the following ideas show the decoration of the living room without a sofa or chair that makes the arrangement of furniture still prioritizes functional, aesthetic, and visual.
- Seat cushion
The design of the living room without chairs also applies to floor or sitting area seating. You can spread out the rug with several cushions in a variety of colors of your choice, with a slight avant-garde touch.
You can even easily move tables and all cushions to sit outdoors so that an outdoor living room is created.
- Oriental approach
Of course, there is a strong precedent for the floor in Japanese tatami culture. If you like the open space unburdened by a variety of furniture, you would prefer a seating floor as an alternative to decorating the living room without a sofa. You can get rid of the seats, and add some Japanese-style floor seats to complement your living room and add pillows and small racks to create a more modern atmosphere.
- Foam padding
Inspired by seating in Moroccan Bedouin tents, you can also apply it in your living room. As an alternative to chairs or sofas in addition to pillows and floor chairs, you can also use foam, sofa floor, or various variations of bean bags. You can fold and stack foam and pillows in the storage cabinet when you are not
- Open Racks
An open Rack can serve as a room divider without dividing the wall. Rack density can be changed based on number of books. With this open rack divider, you can even turn a living room into a mini library, full of books, portraits, artwork, and all the precious memories.
- Entertainment area
Why not turn the living room into a fun family entertainment area to watch television or listen to music? This is a perfect example because the living room will remain stylish and luxurious while at the same time double as a home theater room.
- Reading room
If you have a small living room, this idea is a good example of making use of the corner of the room that is so often missed in the living room. You will like to linger in this room to read a book and relax for a while.
Also, adding a short table can turn a living room into a multifunctional, good as a study room, workspace, family room, reading room, or mini-library. Adding bookshelves, televisions and decorative lights will also create a dramatic impression
- Focus view
You might choose a living room that has a view of the park or a nice outside view. Consider placing sitting cushions facing the view. You can relax and chat while enjoying the view.
- Concave style (sunken)
Another trick for creating a living room decor without a sofa is the sunken style which features a built-in seat by adding foam pads and pillows as a backrest. You and your guests can sit and chat in this cozy and intimate place.
