yikes....we just had a sectional delivered from Pottery Barn. It looks HUGE in our family room...now that it's here, we're thinking maybe we should have gotten 2 love seats and 1 chair instead of this large (123x96) sectional. Maybe breaking it up would seem less closed in...because we have no wall space, at all, the sofa/sectional needs to float away from wall (slider behind), making it seem like it swallows up our room. Any suggestions for seating????

You will have the most versatility with several comfortable chairs. Buy one chair for each person living in the home. The chairs do not have to be identical, but they should be complimentary in color/style to each other. Love seats are not particularly practical, as only one person at a time usually sits on one. Be sure you have enough additional chairs for the number of guests you usually have.

Hi beckyjobrum. This is a common and very expensive mistake. I sure hope you can return it. nasmijati makes a good point but it is the rare space that will accommodate a chair for every family member or number of guests. That said, a mix of sofa or SMALLish sectional with a series of coordinated chairs usually provides the most practical, versatile and attractive solution. It is also not my experience that only one person will sit in a loveseat. I rarely recommend sectionals, with lifestyle and function driven exceptions, of course. They are just generally very limiting for space planning purposes. I hope this is helpful. Happy nesting.
