Help with Sitting Room
April 12, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Ok so we have moved into a smaller house- we once had a separate dining room and eat in kitchen. We found we rarely used the dining room. Now in our new house my mom suggested we turn our breakfast nook into a seating area. I envision the space to be used as a lounge- place to have a glass of wine, read a magazine, have coffee... So we have setup our kitchen table in the "dining room" space. I need help to balance out the room sitting room. Bench chair against the wall is the focal point (I love- it is staying :) I do need more seating, but don't want to crowd the room- ghost chairs under the art with a table in between??? Would a coffee table work or maybe just an ottoman, end tables options? What type of chandelier would work here? I am worried if we have guests we may regret not having extra space for everyone to eat- should I just put a table in here and be done with it???! Help!
