There are a few approaches to arranging furniture with good feng shui in the living room.

Also, try to provide enough seating for everyone in the home with some extra for guests. Then, take the time to arrange the furniture so that when you sit you’re facing others. The idea is to encourage conversation. If possible, minimize any seats that have the back facing the door

Also try out each spot to sit in your seating area to make sure it’s a comfortable place to linger and chat.
