Family room furniture ideas/placement help
August 4, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hello all
New house - new possibilities!

Our old couch, which we loved, does not fit in our new home's family room due to the configuration. I'm at a loss how to furnish this space due to the half wall & placement of the tv. Open to any & all ideas sans moving the tv. Our challenges are:
- comfortable seating for atleast 4 (more if possible) + 2 medium dogs
- hiding tv wires without running through wall
- avoiding a big open space in the middle
- sliders are main thru-fare to back yard
- pulling room together so it looks comfortable & not disjointed
- avoid stuffing the room with large pieces that make the room look small.
- the corner between tv & sliders ??

Open to paint, buy new furniture, window treatments etc etc. I would love some color & patterns, a comfy couch & maybe a chair-and-a-half, bookshelves.... Furniture that can stand up to husband & dogs. Our style is in line with modern traditional (WS, PB etc).

Appreciate any & all ideas

Before jumping in can you post a couple more pictures of the other side of the room?

Is that a loves seat or chair behind the half wall? Are you open to removing the half wall?

How about putting the second sofa opposite the first - leaving room behind for access to glass door (at least 1/2 for the door that opens -. eliminates the 'dont walk in front of my TV view" from the half wall position. The room looks long enough to treat as a separate space with path nearer the 1/2 wall. Would the half wall be more useful as a peninsula/counter with stools or as a full height wall with a desk, reading corner, etc. in that space ?
