Today is the day to bring your sofa off of the wall and try it out a different way. This week, we’re showing you ways to Rethink your furniture arrangement. You don’t have to settle for a sofa with an end table on either side and matching lamps! It’s time to think about your options (you have them, we promise!!).

Try it out and let us know how you do. Stay for more ideas all this week!
