Do You Prefer Big or Small Pieces of Furniture?

Big or Small? What's Your Furniture Style?

I've noticed that when it comes to my growing collection of furniture, most of the pieces are on the small side. This comes in handy when moving into places with small elevators (or none at all), and when I decide to switch up the layout in my living room (I don't have to call in the muscle!). I also love the look of mismatched seating vs. a massive couch set. With oversize pieces, the decorating options are more limited, since space is an issue. This way, I can move pieces from room to room, no problem. However, there are times I could use something big, like a TV stand that could hide unsightly wires and the TV when it's not in use, or a chopping-block-topped kitchen island with storage. What do you think?

I agree with glowing moon. Our living room is narrow and LONG, so we got a narrow and long sectional. It allows for LOTS of seating, but no awkwardness in the narrow room. I generally prefer fewer & larger pieces for various reasons, simplicity in plan & design, allows for decor to be a little more hectic, starts with a simple color pallette, and also, there's less "things" to clean :)

It depends on the room size (including its ceiling height), and the function of the room. For me, these factors drive the furniture selection and it's scale.
