need help on finishing room
October 9, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I need something beside my sofa. I only have about 24" width. Should I place an end table or a floor lamp?

Is there any window treatment other than the blinds on that window? If not, I would add side panels that extend a little bit wider than the window. Choose a fabric with a pattern in a deep color tone. This will fill in that corner area by he sofa. If you need lighting you can add a floor lamp also.

Place a table and lamp in that corner. Try moving the little one beside the sofa in that spot and getting an unusual table (maybe glass top) on right side of sofa with a lamp. Accessorize the coffee table and small lamp table with attention getting pieces of good size. Add solid color pillows with ones already there. (Use color from pallet in print pillows).

Ooops did not see table lamp beside chair. Move it to the other side of chair toward back of it.

There's not much "anchoring" this space. The coffee table disappears into the background. I would love to see a more substantial coffee table in this space - like a dark wood steamer trunk. This will "fill in" the gaps that you feel are inhibiting the space. I think the answer lies not in side tables/lamps but in a different coffee table.

I agree with Mountie about adding deeper color tone side panels. A lot of times the treatments can really make a room. As for the lighting the right floor lamp with settle lighting would do wonders.
