Use a super comfortable armchair

The main furniture in a room is the armchair and the companions. You must take great care of the way you have them. If space is what is left over, then I recommend that you place two sofas: a small one with two seats and the main one with three seats.

Get an armchair or an ottoman

You have to add to the sofa set an ottoman or an armchair, since it is the best way to achieve harmony. If you place them in a U-shape, you will create an intimate and cozy atmosphere, and at the same time, you would be creating a separate space within the room.

I recommend that you balance the lighting with groups of aromatic candles. It helps in providing a pleasant aroma will decorate the space.
