too large couch for room, what to do with the big wall, windows?
October 8, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We just moved into this house, and there is no money for a different couch, this one is too large really for the space. I can't rotate it the other way because then it will be right next to the fireplace and I can't use the fireplace. I would like to center the couch on the window but there is a walkway and so it needs to be pushed against the wall. So what do I do with the big wall space? I don't like the floating shelf because it seems like anything I put on it competes with the mantle. I am thinking of just leaving the window undressed to let in all the light. I think the room needs a large plant and or lamp on the side to balance the fact that it isn't centered on the window.
