“What do you have on the other side of the room from the large window? Is there a wall there? What furniture did you place there, if any? Does your little side table sorta overlap the fireplace or is there room between it?”
Well, here is the other side of the room across from the windows:
This is a large, long living room area. Our TV was a main factor in deciding what the purpose of room will be used for. I am not the greatest fan of the TV over the fireplace, but it does make the best sense for arranging this room. (Plus, that is where all the cable and wires were.)
My first goal for the room was to walk in and have your eyes drawn to my pretty chairs, the windows and beyond:
I will tell you, that when I took photos to show off my new chairs in front the window, I had my husband move ‘his’ chair out of the way. No one wants to see that big, clunky chair in my nice photo shot:
This is my husband’s favorite comfortable chair to watch TV and movies. He lives here too, so it is only right. lol. I push it out of the way the best I can and try to disguise it with throws and pillows.
My spot to watch TV is on the sofa. There were not a lot of options where to place the large piece. Either in front of the windows, or maybe between the living room/dining room area:
But I thought that big, empty wall was just crying out for attention:
So that is why the furniture was arranged this way. It is comfortable, pretty and functional. We also entertain in this room, but we seem to hang out more on the other side of the room with guests which I will share later this week.
Does anyone else have these ‘special’ (man-chair) pieces to work around?Share on Facebook
