Do you ever just feel like something is wrong in your living room, but you aren’t sure what?
Sometimes the problem is you have too many legs or too many skirts on the furniture pieces in your room!
Look around at your furniture, including tables, ottomans and seating. Can you see the legs on all the pieces? If you can, you may have too many legs in that room! If you don’t have a nice balance of furniture with skirts that hide the legs, your room will probably seem a bit, well, leggy. When all the pieces have visible legs it kind of feels like your furniture is not grounded to the space, as if it is all just standing around at a party and no one is relaxed. It can feel a bit messy and just uncomfortable.
If you have too many pieces that do not show legs, the room can feel a bit too heavy, clunky and weighed down. Lighten things up a bit by adding a few tables or chairs with legs! Legs help make a room breathe a bit.
By mixing skirts (meaning any piece that does not show legs, whether it has a solid wood base, flap fabric, ruffled skirt, a table cloth or even a woven basket or solid bookcase without legs) and pieces with legs, you can achieve a nice balance in the room that usually feels just right.
Look around, do you have the right balance of furniture legs and skirts in your room?
