How can I make this furniture work in my family room.

ArleyOctober 1, 2013
I have two couches that were in different rooms and a wall unit that I want to try and combine into one room. I want to place the couches facing each other with the wall unit against the wall. The wall unit will house our TV. The couches are different colors and styles, and I'm fine with that. I would like ideas on a rug that could tie it all together. We will have wood floors with a distressed brushed effect.

I think that the couches are both 108", I would also like coffee table suggestions. It needs to be long but narrow, probably about 36-42" wide. Even two smaller tables could work.

The plan is the brown couch needs to go in front of the wall unit as it has the lowest back, there will be about 30" between the couch and the unit. The TV will sit at about 32" and can easily be seen despite the brown couch being in front of it.

I know that wall will be dark, but we have a good amount of light in this room with the 12' sliding glass door. Also, neither of these pieces are as dark as they appear in the pics.

The beige couch will go opposite.

We have an electrical outlet in the floor under the beige couch, but I'm not sure we will have room for side tables, maybe a sofa table behind the couch though.

I need to get exact measurements on the couches as the depths of these couches vary and I can't remember what they are.

We have been in the remodel process for what seems to be forever, as we had water damage in the middle of the process, (mostly empty house, just drywall damage for the most part)

Your furniture is lovely - it looks like Restoration Hardware? Your idea will totally work! Looking at all your pieces, and the hardwood you will be putting in, I see classic and timeless working best - nothing trendy, definitely nothing loud and bright. The rugs I posted are Ballard Designs, but Pottery Barn would have good choices that will marry your two sofas. The two shades of beige from the sofas, plus some soft blues and/or greens, maybe even a small hit of red, will add another layer of interest to the wonderful character of your furniture. Some pillows that keep the colors distributed further will pull it all together. Third pic is Ballard Designs, fourth pic is Pottery Barn. Lovely home and furniture!

I'd put some pillows/throw on the beige couch that match the brown and vice versa. Then I'd get a few pillows that have both colors and a third, brighter color and put them on both sofas. I'd make sure your furniture is not symmetrical.

Thanks so much for the feedback. I thought it would work, but there's always that feeling that maybe not .....

Yes, it is Restoration Hardware, it's totally my style. I will also be trying to pull the decor as far coastal as possible. Toying with the idea of Silver Sage in the living room. I will post a color palette when I figure it out.

I feel comfortable going ahead with purchases to pull it all together. Once the house is ready for furniture I will start posting some pics to see what you think. I still about 2 months away and biting at the bit!

Wow, for a pro, that was not very tactful.
Funny on houzz how some people can attempt to make things work with what people have and others want to offer comments that are not only not helpful, but not nice either.

All of your pieces are neutral - you can go with a rug that pulls in whatever colors you want to bring into the room. What's going on in the kitchen? Can you bring in color from that palette?

I'm so thankful for different tastes. Because I love both those couches and like your idea of putting them facing each other in your room.
Although I would probably put them in an L-shape. Unit against the wall, one couch facing the garden and one couch facing the wall unit. Large square coffee table.

I think Sustainable Dwellings dredged this one up.
