What Houzz contributors are saying:
Coffee tables. Most coffee tables are finished out at around 18 to 20 inches high. This allows for comfortable legroom in relation to sofas and chairs.
Keep an eye on scale and lines too. You'll know when things look off. Here, taller seating options just wouldn't work — but they might in a less traditional room lacking chair rails. Yellows and golds are the neutrals here, and accents are kept to a bare minimum. The result? A welcoming, comfortable living room. Surprise elements are twofold: The ethereal, mustardy Susan Spies abstract and the mirrored coffee table are both lovely anchors. The round lines of the Michael Taylor club chair pair well with the classic, silk velvet Century Furniture roll-arm sectional — and nicely contrast with the angular moldings. Sharp marble, obsidian obelisks and jutting black sconces tie it all together while contrasting colorwise.
Consider a luxe upholstery fabric for your sofa. Who said a sofa can’t be both comfortable and luxurious? When you upholster it in a material such as velvet, it becomes both a stylish sight for the eyes and a soft, relaxing spot for a restful evening.
