A Strange Layout


You have enough space for a nice comfy sectional, then add one or two comfy chairs. Will you have an entertainment center in there somewhere or TV over the fireplace?

A Strange Layout


The problem with the sectional is location. TV will not be over the fireplace as there is not enough seating. not sure where it will go yet. could be on the wall/cabinet next to fireplace, or perhaps on the end to left or right of windows. that is why this layout is tricky. i also don't want to block the bay window. thanks for your ideas.

A Strange Layout


I'd have to think on it some more, but you pretty much have two choices here: to create two separate seating areas (one for the fireplace and one for the far end of the room), or to place an entertainment center/TV to the right of the fireplace and create one seating area that encompasses both.

Since the room lacks symmetry and you don't want to block the bay window, I think creating one seating area that encompasses the entire wall that the fireplace is on is your best bet. You could do a sectional that L's out on the fireplace side, so the back of it would create a natural walkway for people coming in the front door and give you a little bit of an "entry hallway" feel. Then two accent chairs floated in the middle of the room, facing the sectional L to finish out the square. All of that anchored by an area rug that's big enough for all the furniture to be on it.

If you have enough room, you could put a comfy chair for reading near the bay window and bookshelves. Or you could just leave that area open.

This isn't the exact furniture arrangement I was imagining, but the room is a little reminiscent of yours (just flip the fireplace and TV): http://www.houzz.com/photos/36704/Ne...ly-room-boston


You could also do something like this (but flip the couch and the chairs so the couch back creates an entry hall): http://www.houzz.com/photos/1440475/...-san-francisco

I prefer not to walk right into a room from the front door, but sometimes it can't be helped.

You have space for either the back of a sofa or a narrow table and lamp to define an entry way.

You're lucky to have all that natural light. I really like this room.
