Among one of the hottest trends that has erupted around the country in terms of home decor and interior design is that of Feng Shui. The old Chinese tradition takes into consideration energy flows in the home, and provides blueprints on how best to setup the furniture and decor throughout the home to get the perfect balance of positive energy in the home. Implement some of the techniques above in terms of the living room sofa in your home to get the best results.
- Because a sofa is the focal point for furniture within a living room, it should be put backed up against a wall
- Do not position your sofa so that it is against a window, as this is poor feng shui
- In a living room, the sofa should be placed so that it is within view of the door
“While there are guidelines to enhance the feeling of security and serenity in a space, feng shui principles can – and should! – be applied to any style of décor.”
