"It's not difficult to get furniture custom made here in India and I would still like to avoid/minimize pouffe sort of furniture since this room will have visitors related to work/business ! "
ok nlr, now I see what you're trying to achieve. comfortable,
functional and somewhat business like.
One question, how many adults we be gathered in this
room at one time?
You said it's not difficult to get custom furnitue made in India. How
about a narrow sectional -- placed along the left inside wall and
the far end wall? On each end of the sofa have small end tables
with lamps...they kind I'm thinking about have stackable tables
that fit inside, They can be easily pulled out for use...
For the front wall small chairs with upholstered seats, (for comfort)perhaps four of them?
If you need tables so that people can use them to write on...the stackable
end tables on either side of the sectional will work.
Also on the inside wall near the doorway to the rest of the house a small
table (or piece of furniture) for use for coffee or tea and other snacks.
I will do a quick search for an example of stackable tables.
ok. Here's stackable tables. One set on each end of the sectional,
would be attractive as well as functional. The smaller one's
are perfect for pulling out in front of the sofa when needed.
something like this...
this is from the same link I provided -- under side boards...
I was thinking of something like this for a coffee, tea server...
It has storage and is quite functional.
again, something like this can be placed on the left inside
wall -- near the doorway into the main part of the house.
...also if you put a lamp on this table you could eliminate
the lamp on the stackable end tables that is near this piece of furniture,
thus the bigger end table next to the sofa can be easily pulled out for your
guests to use. Hopefully you can buy or have this made in India.
I was thinking of four chairs like these to be placed along
the front outside wall...these are from the same website, as
the stackable tables and the sideboard table.
The chair with rollers would be functional
and the arms are comfortable.
