The FG Room Planning Guide 

Create the perfect arrangement for every room with these considerations for selecting pieces and placement. 

Utilizing Your Space

Swivel chairs, small stools or low benches are a great way to utilize space in front of a TV or fireplace.

Keeping It Flexible 

Consider using nearby ottomans or dining chairs for extra seating that can be pulled into the conversation when there is a big group. These pieces don’t necessarily have to be a permanent part of the arrangement.

Fostering Conversation

Group seating into conversation areas. People feel most comfortable when someone can be seated across from them or diagonally rather than right next to them. 


Sectionals are great for kids piling on and watching a movie since they don’t mind sitting close to each other. They are also great for casual hang-out areas and for balancing out a tricky spot like a corner fireplace. 

Separate Pieces

Separate sofas and chairs are optimal for fostering conversation. They also allow rearranging options for temporary get-togethers or for future flexibility.
