Need help with furniture layout for room with corner fireplace
April 29, 2013 in Design Dilemma
This room is 19'X14', with 8'H X 15'L windows on the 19' wall, and a corner fireplace on the right side of these windows. Along the back wall is a 16' wet bar and wine storage area. The bottom of the fireplace is raised 42" off the floor, and we did not build out a hearth or mantle, in order to preserve floor space below and wall space above. Finally, on the fourth wall, that to the left of the window wall, there are two doors, one on each end. The door adjacent to the windows leads to the terrace. The door adjacent to the service bar, leads to our kitchen. The challenge is not to obstruct the view of the Chesapeake Bay. However, the long, narrow shape of the room and angled fire place is causing a few challenges. Suggestions?
