This tiny room is burdened with two entrances. The narrow traffic path slices through the conversation area.
Create two conversation stations, bridged by the rug. Open up a traffic path, and add some visual height to the design with elements that lift the eye. For details, scroll down below the plan.
1. Balance lighting around the room; consider both task lighting and mood lighting. 2. Center the love seat in front of the windows and nudge the sofa in close for conversation. 3. Slide tail table away from the center of the room, opening a walkway for traffic. 4. Lay a large rug on the floor to warm a conversation area and to bridge pieces of upholstery. 5. Angle the chairs for intimate conversation. Use a tree to soften the corner behind the chairs. 6. Balance the visual weight of doorways and windows with the height of a secretary desk.
