I love this no-sofa look! Just seems more balanced. My husband does like to lie horizontal, though, so I am not totally regretting buying our sofa last year. Thank you for the idea!

Regarding the room with a "stage".. Is it only me who finds that extremely awkward? I find it to be semi-wasted space. Maybe it's just because I'm not a performer (I don't even want to sing in the shower), but if you want to play something for your family, it would seem much more natural to do it in a more relaxed manner instead of saying "Not here, let's go into the other room so I can get on stage." To each their own, I suppose.

I love the idea of creating a contemporary conversation area using 4 chairs and a round table. Can this be done with a dining height table?
