Hi my name is Erica Lugbill and I'm an interior designer working for Lugbill Designs in Chicago. Today I'm going to cover how to arrange modular furniture. When you go to the furniture store to pick out your sectional it is very helpful to have an actual floor plan or dimensions of the space so you can be sure that the pieces that you're choosing aren't too large in scale, that way they won't feel too massive or too heavy in your space and weigh it down. Also when you're deciding on the actual placement of your furniture, it's really nice when you keep the sectional as open as possible. Keep in mind that when you first walk into a room or walk down the stairs, you don't want to walk directly into the back of a sofa or sectional, it will just feel closed off. It will make your space feel a lot smaller. So as open as you can keep the arrangement, it's better. When you are purchasing your sectional, some of them come with this already installed. For the ones that don't, there are these nifty little connectors. They're actually sectional connectors that you can find at your hardware store or on line and what they do is you screw them onto the bottom of your furniture and then you can see the mechanism here itself, you push it in and then when you go to pull it out it will keep it in place. So that way your sectional pieces aren't separating and moving all over your room. And then in order to separate your sectional once it's connected, you just lift up on the piece and then you can move it around again. So great little trick to keep your sectional in place. Thanks for watching my video today. I hope you found these tips helpful.
