A place for Revit updates, Revit news, and Revit information.
When you are designing a living room, what do you think off, and how do you design? I often find myself asking these questions:
The answer to these questions may come in many forms. Should there be: a loveseat, a sectional, a sofa? How many individual seats are needed? How should they be orientated? How long should the sectional be? With almost limitless possibilities going back and forth between the content browser to find the right pieces can be a drag. Especially if you are experimenting with many different arrangements.
Introducing the 3 Revit Furniture pieces that will SAVE YOUR LIFE! (The fourth piece is further down!)
While these piece may not save your life, I would not recommend throwing your computer after you if you were drowning in water. They will save you time, thus helping you live more of your life! These pieces can be arranged in many different patterns to help you create the living room that your client needs. Below are just a few of the possibilities you can make with these three furniture pieces.
By adding the fourth piece, the Albert Sierra Chair, you can create a complete living room with multiple arrangements that fill the space.
4 Strategies for designing living rooms.
1) Mix sofas, sectionals with individual pieces.
A great counter-piece to a large sectional is individual smaller sized armchairs.
2) Form a balanced relationship.
Don't forget about conversation, if a room will be heavily used to converse with company make sure that the furniture is appropriate for that use.
3) Don't be afraid to stand alone.
Fit the furniture to your clients use, sometimes only one stand alone piece is needed or wanted.
4) Face away from the TV/Fireplace
By placing ones back to the TV/Fireplace or wall you allow the user to have private space for reading, relaxing or enjoying conversation without the distraction of the TV.
Don't forget to experiment or play. Sometimes solutions present themselves though your subconscious. A room might "click" by accident.
