When we moved into our house, we transferred the furniture from our apartment living room to the living room in our house, added a Milo Baughman parsons chair for extra seating and called it a day, knowing we’d come back to it later to refurbish. We’re not quite ready to pull the trigger and need to make some bigger picture decisions around whether and how we’re going to open up our living room further, but for now we both agree it’s about time for a new sofa (or two!
My biggest challenge is that I absolutely hate that from the front hallway, all you see of the living room is the back of the sectional.
This layout is ideal for TV watching, but it still feels like it cutting up the space visually.
I also don’t know if this is going to make the view from the dining room (and in the future, the kitchen, more closed off) And I love these matching sofas in Paloma Contrera’s living room.
And because it’s worth mentioning, we’re opting out of a sectional because this is our only living room / lounge space and while a sectional feels like it adds a bit of space when it’s the two of us, it really doesn’t add much extra seating when you have company over (nobody REALLY likes to sit on that chaise… keeping it real).
