Heart of the Room
In warm, livable rooms the conversational grouping is always the heart of the space. The best way to create an intimate gathering place is to pull the sofa and chairs off the walls, and let them anchor the center of the room. There are two basic forms for the conversational grouping. The H-form and the U-form. The H-form is useful for more square rooms. The two chairs sit across from the sofa with the coffee table in-between. The U-form is useful for more rectangular rooms. The two chairs sit on either end of the coffee table. And, When your gathering place is centralized, you have your walls for all kinds of interesting pieces, both beautiful and useful for storage. Build your room from the inside out. Create a place to gather that’s cozy, leaving your walls open to use in other interesting and functional ways.
