Corner fireplace....Help with furniture

jshaleMay 20, 2013
We moved into our place mid January. I'm still stuck and would luv some help finishing this room. We have an open concept floor plan (I've attached the layout).

What suggestions do you have with placement of the sofa & what type of chairs to get + how to decorate the room. For now, we are sticking with our brown sofa (hopefully recovered or replaced at a later date).

I've attached the floor plan & some pics of the fireplace & sofa.
We have the white area rug (5 x 8) that we would like to keep in the room.

Thanks!!

Just for clarification, I'm talking about the "GREAT ROOM" :-)
There is a banister on the left side, I'm thinking about keeping a small cabinet (with bar stuff in it) against the wall near the banister. We are planning on painting it. photo attached

Angle the couch to directly face the fireplace. To balance, put two chairs on either side of the fireplace. This will also leave you enough room to have that cabinet at the banister.

I think we need other angles with pics not just the layout. That would help to visualize the placement of your sofa.

I moved the sofa, so it directly faces the fireplace. Think it sticks out too far, past the railing. What do you think sloan01 ? Any other ideas?

Design 1: move the couch so it faces the wall with the window (if there's room on either side of the couch put two end tables) then in the corner with the banister, instead of two living chairs, purchase a single lounge chair. Also the table you want to keep can move centered under the window.

Design 2: Move the coach centered where the banister faces the Great Room. Further to the long wall (but no touching it) place to living chairs with an end table in the middle of them. Also place a coffee table in the center of the room.

Hi... Place the sofa facing the blank wall-two chairs with backs to dining room-upholstered ottoman to serve as a foot rest and coffee table---large armoire (mirrored) on blank wall. You could also switch placement (couch back to dining---chairs facing blank wall/armoire)... Pics for inspiration. Hope this is helpful. Good Luck! [houzz=
