Furniture placement in multipurpose, open concept room with lots of traffic
May 22, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hello. I have a fair sized multipurpose room, kitchen, family dining, cocktail area that is difficult to place furniture in. Reasonable high use of the french doors, a fireplace between 2 main entrances to formal dining room and the tv room. The seated area under consideration is really only used when we have company - otherwise we go into the tv room right next door. Would like to actually use this part of the room more!!! I would like to have more seating for parties that does not close off the room to the tv room - people wander back and forth all the time - especially on route to the kitchen. Willing to buy new furniture. The fireplace is not the focal point - it is the view out the french door and onto the deck and to the valley, plus into the kitchen. I want it to be all of one room with the kitchen so I can cook and listen to conversation while finishing dinner details. Upholstered stools?? Arm chairs?? Where to place tables?? Thanks very much!!
