Having a corner fireplace in the living room can make decorating a little bit tricky, but very possible to be done with the right furniture and well-planned arrangement. With televisions getting thinner and wider, the old time idea of using the space above the corner fireplace for TV becomes obsolete. We are here to inspire you with clever ideas to decorate around a corner fireplace.
Accent Wall for Corner Fireplace
Transform the bland corner fireplace wall into an interesting focal point by covering the particular wall with mosaic tiles. Install a floating wood shelf to place decorative items that go with the living room theme. Dress up the room with a comfortable sectional sofa across the accent wall to avoid blocking the fireplace.
White Theme Idea
Avoid the awkward living room arrangement by placing built-in cabinets on either side of the stone fireplace. The cabinet provides a dedicated space for mounting the TV, and ample storage space to organize books and other personal items. Furnish the room with a pair of cozy twosome sofas, a wooden coffee table, and a metal corner table across the fireplace.

Combine with Floating Shelves
Shift the focal point of the living room to the wall beside the stone corner fireplace. Install a few floating shelves on either side of the mounted TV, accentuated with LED lights under each shelf for a sophisticated impression. Layer the floor in front of the fireplace, adjacent to the window, with the soft brown rug and place brown velvet sofas for comfortable seating space.
Different Wall Colors
Paint the walls – including the protruding surround of the corner fireplace – window frame and ceiling in off-white to contrast the naturally glowing wooden floor – partially covered with a large light-gray patterned rug. Dress the living room with cushioned sectional sofa paired with round coffee table and matching side table. Throw in some greenish and yellow plush pillows to the sofa for a little pop of color without breaking the modest look of the room.
Corner Fireplace with Pyramid Wall
The corner fireplace is situated between the beautiful arched window that brings in plenty of natural lights for the living room and the large wooden TV cabinet. A couple of chairs with matching ottomans and a small accent table by the window will keep the balance of the room.
With a stone fireplace in the corner and a connecting door with windows next to it, the balance of the room can be preserved with built-in shelving on the vacant wall next to the corner fireplace. The shelves are designed to frame the TV, thus maximizing the space on the wall. The arrangement of the furniture is slightly diagonal facing the corner fireplace as the anchor for the decoration.
It’s easier to decorate the living room when we already have a focal point, in this case, the corner stone fireplace. Instead of scattering decorative details, keep the uncluttered look of the room by arranging all decorative pieces altogether right by the corner fireplace to make an ultimate decorative focal point.
Natural Style Idea
The corner stone fireplace inspired the natural theme of the living room. With neutral hues and nature details, every element charmingly complements the other and has undoubtedly made the room a very calm place to relax.
Combine with Piano
For the musical family, it’s imperative to have at least one piano in the house. Bring in the piano to the living room, right next to the corner fireplace. Provide plenty of comfortable seating space with cozy thick cushioned sofa, for everyone to gather around and enjoy a world-class piano performance right in the living room.
High-Ceiling Corner Fireplace
The stone corner fireplace that extends upwards to reach the living room ceiling is really eye-grabbing. With an impressive focal point like that, the sheer curtains framing the windows on either side of the fireplace can help soften the overall look. The light arrangement without bulky furniture, to preserve the natural beauty of the stone fireplace, worked really well with this living room.
Eclectic Living Room with Corner Fireplace
The blue mosaic tiles surrounding the corner fireplace has become an inspiration to decorate the living room area with blue sofa and a couple of coral chairs. Across the blue sofa, next to the corner fireplace, is a white cabinet that blends in with the wall, making the bold colors of the furniture pops out.
For anyone who prefers to keep it simple and functional, the living room can be outfitted with only the necessities. A chocolate rug can keep the feet warm as we sit on the off-white velvet sofa while watching TV – mounted on the wall next to the corner fireplace and above a wooden cabinet with charming details.
It’s perfectly acceptable to not anchor the living room arrangement around the corner stone fireplace. The comfortable sofas in the room are purposefully conditioned to face the TV cabinet, with a small rug and a wooden coffee table in between. The corner fireplace can be treated as an accent piece with decorative details highlighted by the recessed light.
Same Color Chairs
The on-going process of decorating shows that the living room is going to be furnished with brown leather sofas and a pair of white upholstered chairs with cubby accent table. The sofas and chairs will be arranged by the sides of the corner fireplace, and the TV will be permanently mounted above it.
Low-Ceiling Living Room with Stone Corner Fireplace
The corner fireplace has become the visual interest of this living room, surrounded by classic brown leather sofa set, creating a masculine impression to the room. We can accessorize the room with a few framed artwork or family pictures to show a little bit of personal touch and soften the mood of the room.
