Whether you're working in a small or a large space, you should always try to have the the same number of furniture pieces. For example in a lounge room you'll need a sofa, possibly an accent chair for additional seating, an occasional table for those cheeky glasses of wine, a coffee table which is essential for your interior decorating magazines, a console or buffet for extra storage or displaying pictures, a floor lamp, and lastly a rug that will tie it all together. And if you have an extra-large lounge room, don't be scared... Upscale!! Make everything bigger but make sure you keep to the same number of essential furniture pieces. So for example instead of a 2-seater sofa you'll likely choose a 3-seater sofa and instead of off-the-rack rug you may choose to have an extra large rug custom made to suit the proportions of your room. So how does your room measure up?
