Pairs are important here. Flank a pair of comfortable and inviting chairs or similar in size, design and proportion on either side of the fireplace. Place your sofa directly facing the fireplace and you now have a comfortable conversation area. Situate a cocktail table, ottoman or other surface in front of the sofa. Dress the mantle
with a mirror, art, and other accessory pairs. Anchor the area with a beautiful area rug and make sure to relax the formality and potential stiffness with some colorful objects and textures. In a more energetic space with the varied details, irregular nooks and crannies the fireplace that is off center can create a more challenging space to layout. It’s also a more interesting space to design. You may still be able to place the sofa directly in front of the fireplace, but if that isn’t an option, consider positioning the furniture on a rug set on a slight diagonal
turn. Make sure that the floating furniture situated on that rug are positioned at right angles with each other. It’s all about the relationship within the grouping itself.
