Buying A Sofa Online Seemed Risky, But It Was The Best Thing Ever

My family and I live in a remote area—the nearest town has 200 people—so when it came time to replace our falling-apart sofa, our IRL shopping options were very limited unless we wanted to devote our lives to driving to furniture stores. The closest shops were perfectly respectable but lacked a certain flair. It seemed like ordering a sofa online was our only good option, and I’m thrilled it was, because it ended up working out great.

How to Set Up Your Living Room (Without a Focus on the TV)

These days, we tend to arrange living rooms with one thing in mind: making sure everyone can see the TV. But what’s ideal for television watching is often less than ideal for another time-honored living room pastime: conversation. In this post, I’m focusing on living room arrangements that are less amphitheater, and more intimate, cozy spots where you can have a lovely fireside chat (and maybe also fit a television, too).
