I am sitting here playing around on the furniture store's website, trying in vain to design my living room. My living room is an odd size - 13'x23'. It's hard to think of placing furniture in the room because there are so many 'interruptions' in the design. Either doors or entries or windows or a 7' hearth.
I've always had a sofa, love seat, chair and ottoman as my main pieces of furniture. But my family is rough on furniture so I am seriously leaning towards not buying a love seat and purchasing two recliners. My current furniture is a dark green with some stripes - sort of like a plaid. The sofa that I am looking at is a light neutral color. The recliners we are considering would be burgundy and would tie in the drapes that I have on the three windows in the room. My dilemma though is what to do with this awkward corner over between the fireplace and the window? Should I purchase one of the chairs that matches the sofa to go here?
Right now I have the matching chair to my current furniture there. Anybody have any other ideas of what to do with that space? It's also where I generally put our Christmas tree so whatever is there has to be moved out and/or around when it's time to decorate. (Gee, I keep bringing up that, don't I?)
BTW, the two openings you see on the wall where the sofa is (that doesn't have a door) are two different ways to enter the room so they can't be blocked because of the flow of traffic.
Seriously, somebody give me some suggestions...
