Welcome to The ReArranger!!! Slumberland Furniture's Award Winning Web Series! ** Season 3, Episode 8 "Extra Party Seating" If you are having more than 4-6 people over in a smaller space, you may need some extra seating. First, and most obvious, you can always pull a chair or two over from the dining room. Second, consider picking up a cube ottoman or two. They are comfy and have storage. Lastly, these unique cushions provide the perfect accent. Use one or 2 per person. It's as easy as that, and everyone stays comfortable.

Party Seating

Picture this scenario, you’ve just hosted a wonderful family reunion and have reconnected with relatives you haven’t seen in years. The afternoon goes swimmingly, but eventually it becomes clear some of your relatives are going to have to spend the night at your house before heading home, because they live too far to drive home at night. Unfortunately, you only have one spare bedroom, so what do you do? The answer is simple. You have a sleeper sofa, courtesy of Slumberland Furniture! Sleeper sofas are couches that can fold out into a bed for sleeping. Just add sheets and pillows, and you have a perfectly good additional sleeping spot for a few more people without anyone risking the backache of sleeping on a regular sofa. Slumberland has a wide assortment of sleeper sofas in a variety of styles and materials, ranging from fabric to leather, faux leather, and microfiber. Additionally, the bed sizes available for sleeper sofas range from twin to king size.

Couches and chairs can mark the transformation of a room from an austere space to a warm and inviting home. Especially when you need extra party seating. When you have a lot of people to accommodate in your home, say for a party, there are a few logical steps you can take, and Slumberland Furniture can help you prepare for each one. First, you will need adequate furniture to provide seating for all your partygoing guests. Here we offer a few seating suggestions.


The first tool in your arsenal for extra party seating is a good sofa. These are able to seat multiple people comfortably, and they look great in a living room area. Slumberland sofas come in a variety of materials, including leather, fabric, faux leather, microfiber, and vinyl. When you want to seat a large number of people, you can't go wrong with a sofa. You can set up your sofa facing an armchair or two and in front of several ottomans (which we will go over later in this passage). This way, your guests will be facing each other when seated, which can facilitate party-time conversation. What's more, a sofa creates a certain level of intimacy with guests and allows social barriers normally present to be bridged during your gathering, helping the party get started.


These are a very important part of party seating, as you can use many of these for emergency storage, as they are hollow. You can additionally seat guests on the ottomans or otherwise place them in front of the sofa to allow guests to put up their feet. Ottomans additionally provide the perfect accent to your room's décor, allowing you to look chic as well as accommodate all your guests. You can't go wrong with an ottoman as far as your party seating goes, so pick one up from Slumberland Furniture today.

Now, you might be wondering what an accent chair is exactly. It is a chair that is meant to serve as the focal point of a room, visually. By way of contrast, this chair draws the eyes to it and acts as a prominent feature of the space.

You can really highlight the positive features of your living room by utilizing an accent chair effectively.
