Forget elbowroom. [Fabulous Decorating for Small Spaces]

Forget elbowroom.

Snug rooms are a chance to get cozy. To seat a crowd, ditch the sectional sofa (no one wants to sit in the corner anyway) in favor of small seats packed closely together. A love seat and two chairs add up to more cushions than a three-seater sofa, for example. Keep the profiles of the pieces trim and tight, no beefy arms or hefty wing chairs. Look for chairs with straight sides – armless slipper chairs are even better – that can be placed hip to hip.
