While I personally wouldn't be caught dead near that "tomato red" cabinet (yuck), I agree with most of the others with the exception of 6. The photo in 6 shows how rooms done by a designer are seldom able to be truly lived in. There are only two ways to enter that grouping of furniture and that's at the same end on either side of the coffee table. There is so little space between the sofas and the table that if anyone wants to move in that area, or get out of the area, everyone between them and the exit has to either get up and move out or pull their knees up to their chins to get them out of the way. Very interesting article though and sure to make you think about they way you do things.

The red cabinet, the cow prints and the fish over the coach are repulsive!
