Small Scale vs Large Scale Furniture

In a small space, it's important to get pieces that fit. No, your furniture shouldn't be mini, but they should... fit. Just because you've always wanted a 6-seat sofa, doesn't mean you should squeeze one in your living room if it's the only thing that can physically go in there. With that being said, I also don't think since you have a small space, you should have a room full of small furniture.

There should be balance in your room... a mix of both large scale and small scale furniture. If you have a King sized bed in your bedroom, then you could still fit end tables if you get a pair that are smaller in scale that match the bed in style.

Same thing works in your living room. If you want that large sofa, but also want a side table (or pair of side tables) get a side table that matches in style, but isn't as large in scale.

Don't put all large or all small scaled furniture in your home; the look is so Alice in Wonderland. (Click to tweet

Here's some examples of small & large scaled furniture:
