Living rooms and sofas are a pair you don’t see broken up too often, but, seriously, WHY NOT? A decent couch is super-expensive most of the time, and if you live in a studio or a tiny apartment, your “living room” probably barely fits one anyways. We say, free yourself from the sofa if it’s not your thing. There are other, way more flexible ways to make your space somewhere you (and your friends) want to hang out.
