Great ideas and advice. We have a nice large new lounge extention and in a position not to have to have sofas against the walls. It’s a complete blank canvas and I’m terrified of getting it wrong. The middle feature of the wall facing you as you come into the room is the fire. The TV point is in the right corner of that wall. To see the TV from both large sofas I think I would have to place both sofas in an L shape. This means seeing the back of a sofa when you walk into the room. I can’t see any design photos where this is the case. Is this a no-no creatively?
