A striking den structure entails flanking a corner fireplace with two recliners, then positioning other furniture toward the end of the room. When placed at an angle, then the recliners restate the corner fireplace contour. But arranging the recliners elsewhere in the room types an asymmetrical arrangement that may direct focus on desired decor.
Flanking the Fireplace
Enhance a corner fireplace by positioning recliners on either side and in front of the fireplace. By turning the recliners inward to handle the fireplace, you direct focus on the fireplace itself, a framework or a mirror on the fireplace mantel, that establishes a clear focus to your room. At the end of the room, a little sofa adds interest, as does a console behind the sofa, assuming you have the space. You can also arrange the couch opposite the fireplace, the recliners angled in from each side and a coffee table between them to create a conversational area in front of the corner fireplace.
Angling the Recliners
By putting two recliners toward the middle of a little room, then angling the recliners to confront each other, you establish a V-shape which echoes the corner fireplace form. End tables beside each recliner supply definition. And between the recliners and the fireplace, two ottomans supply color without the addition of more large furniture in a small room. When angled recliners are placed at the end of the room, more space can be found in front of the recliners, allowing room for a little, adjacent settee.
Recliners on a Horizontal Wall
If recliners are placed on a wall wall, the corner fireplace gets less prominent, as the recliners draw focus to their visual weight alone, and the horizontal arrangement provides a chance to include a thin, but long coffee table. A rectangular carpet is one way to direct attention toward the corner fireplace. To avoid crowding the room’s perimeter, a little loveseat or futon at the end of the room completes the geometric arrangement without adding more weight to one side of the room.
Dispersing the Recliners
A alternative to clustering the recliners in a set involves spreading them to open space when making an asymmetrical look. By putting one recliner with a corner fireplace, space is cleared for a little settee or a futon near the end of the room. Turned inward to confront the horizontal wall, the other recliner adds an additional bench to the furniture crowd. An ottoman adds balance, especially in the event the ottoman fits the color of the recliner near the fireplace.
