This Styling Trick Has the Most Impact on Living Room Furniture Arrangements

The living room is the centerpiece of your home. It's one of the first things guests see when they enter and where they're most likely to spend the majority of their visit. Through design and décor, you help communicate a message—and through the arrangement and functionality of the furniture, you help facilitate communication.
