You may have noticed in last week’s post about our sofa table that I changed up the seating arrangement in our living room a little. We don’t hang out in here as much since we built the new den, so I felt like I could get rid of a chair and open things up a little. It’s not a huge room, and the sofa is pretty much tied to one spot. This is how it’s been for a while:
Usually, it’s just me watching this TV, and the end of the couch is my seat of choice. I also felt like the coffee table was a little on the small side. (It’s actually more of an end table, I guess.)
I took out the corner armless chair (and moved it to the bedroom upstairs) and used the pair of slipcovered chairs (these from PB) on each side of the fireplace. This also let me pull the sofa in a little.
And, it made room for the fretwork coffee table I found at a second hand store a few weeks ago, when I wasn’t really looking for a coffee table. (Don’t you love when that happens?) It really makes me feel happier about the whole space.
Lots of room to accessorize. (And, I’ve only caught the twins jumping off of it a few times!)
