Design Without Wall Space

How do I place furniture in a room with little wall space?

Float the furniture in the middle of the room. You don’t have to place everything up against the walls if you have smalls walls. Use an area rug to define the space as opposed to the walls. Consider having the fabric at the back of the furniture be upholstered in a different fabric to create more visual interest. If you enter the room and see the back of the sofa first you will want it to be attractive. I have also used a sofa-back table to create interest and to create additional storage for the room. This works particularly well for open concept spaces where the sofa back faces into an adjacent room and you will look at the back of the sofa often.
