Is this okay with the rug and ottoman arrangement?
htjunkie007August 9, 2014
Got a new love seat, it's a recliner set so I don't need the Ottoman in front of the set. I push it to the side and keeping the old fabric chair to tie the Ottoman together. I'm always confused with how to arrange the rug if the love seat and chair should be sitting on it?

Your opinion would be greatly appreciated.

Give it a try with the front feet of both pieces on the rug. See if you like it. If you don't, don't do it. Wondering if the brown sofa would be happier if it were part of the group. Otherwise, nice room!

Looks to be a very thick rug, so it may unbalance the seating if the front feet are put on it. But it looks too small to put them both on it. First, I have to ask which seating can watch TV? Doesn't look possible with this arrangement.

The dark glass piece behind the couch is an electric fireplace. The TV is in front of the recliner set.

This is from before the white sofa set. I loved the old set but the back was too low and can't watch TV comfortably. We weren't planned to use the room that much but we have since changed the habit.

Rather than replacing the whole set, was hoping to reuse what I have around.

Do you find the ottoman to be okay by the wall? I keep thinking I was like cleaning the rug so it's off to the side :)

Nice room. I think the ottoman is fine off to the side. It grounds the art on that wall.

I think your rug would look better pulled under the couch about 8" or so, just enough so the chair looks centered on the end.

Took me a while to pull the rug under the loveseat, finally it's done. I do believe it looks more symmetrical.

Lots to like, but some things I don't understand. Seems like an odd placement for the fireplace. Might be better on the art wall or maybe even the TV wall, which I don't think we've seen. Also, there is no place to set down a drink or a book or a tv remote, which would be a must for me. Is that because of the recliner?

I'll take picture from the other angle to show the TV and the aquarium, I just picked up an accent glass table for the corner. I do have a remote control but it's sitting on the other side where the glass end table is. I put my drink on top of the ottoman which is not very convenient every time I want a sip!
