Instead, furnish the space by floating furniture away from walls. They suggest repositioning sofas and chairs into cozy conversational groups, and placing pieces so that the traffic flow in a room is obvious.

I agree that this not only makes the space more user-friendly, but also opens up the room and make it seem larger.
