2. Use Statement Pieces

Statement pieces are great conversation starters! You can make use of detailed chandeliers or light pendants, artwork, decorative items such as vases, or a large canvas image of your family. Since this living room is formal, keep the clutter to a minimum and, instead, have tasteful decorative items that catch the eye and spark conversation.

3. Add Colour Pops

We recommend keeping your formal living room neutral/ However, this doesn’t mean that everything needs to be plain. Add some tasteful colour pops in artwork, lampshades, throw cushions and rugs. By keeping the main body of the room neutral, you can change up décor whenever you wish.

4. Structure Your Seating

Since the main purpose of this room is for interaction, you are going to want to structure your seating to encourage this. Entertainment living room seating is typically laid out facing the television. In your formal lounge, you are going to want to keep your seating fairly close together and facing each other, such as in a square around an occasional table. It is also advisable to have seating close to the centre table or ensure that seating have side tables next to them for drinks and snacks to be placed on.
