Back to Back Sofas; Not a New Idea, But A GREAT One

I wonder who was the first designer to think to put sofas back to back in a large room? Pure genius!! I considered this look for my family room, but even though it is large, it is a square, and I prefer the back to backs in a rectangular room.  Do you like this look?

I told everyone yesterday that the Tiny Prints sale was ending, and I was wrong.  It didn't end yesterday - it ends tomorrow.  So sorry - I got my sales mixed up.  So anyway, you still have today and tomorrow to get 40% off with Code CB12:

Great post, Stacy! I've wanted to try this look in the formal living room for awhile. Thanks for the inspiration!

I could pin all day from your blog - great images. So jealous of rooms big enough for the back to back couches as I sit in my very narrow up & down London home.

The room with the sofas on the diagonal is a very interesting way to work around a big piano! I love it!

Love it!! Such a great way to define the space in a cohesive way.

I'm seconding Laurie's emotion up there in the comments. I live in a small New York studio apartment but dream of having a room large enough that 2 sofas is a must-have. Le sigh!! Dear Santa....

I LOVE the back-to-back sofas. And I agree with you on needing a large, rectangular room with the addition that both sofas match. Luckily I have the perfect room for it in my house! But unluckily, my husband is not yet comfortable with the idea. Maybe your pictures will help.

I think this look is great for a VERY large room--especially if there are two focal points.

I like the idea a lot but my all time favorite is sofas facing each other either in front of a large fireplace or just with a large coffee table in between…to me it makes more since for conversations, etc…These pictures were all just gorgeous and I would love to have a big enough family room to do either option in! Great post, Stacy!
