Option One

Our first option has the seating focused on the center of the space with a central coffee table which provides a great adult entertaining space.

Pro's 

  • Seating for 6   

  • The largest sofa faces the TV directly for everyday use 

  • More adult themed entertaining space 

  • Plenty of light from the windows 

  • Side tables for almost all seating positions 

  • Plus a central table 

  • Flowers in the window on tall thin console style table 

  • Units are easily accessible 

  • Lots of storage

  • Great view on entering the space

  • Lots of room when entering the space  

Con's 

  • Could seat more in the space

  • Not all chairs face the TV or fireplace 

  • The door wont be able to open full as it does with the smaller sofa behind it - there will be more room to get in through in front and greater feeling of space when entering

Option Two

Option Two

Second option faces the chair more towards the TV area moving the focal point and pushing more focus to the fireplace and storage units. 

Pro's 

  • Seating for 6   

  • Seating concentrates on the center of the space for talking 

  • More adult themed entertaining space 

  • Plenty of light from the windows 

  • Side tables for almost all seating positions 

  • Plus a central table 

  • Flowers in the window on tall thin console style table 

  • Units are most easily accessible 

  • Lots of storage

  • Reading corner created in the window

Con's 

  • Could seat more in the space

  • Not all chairs face the TV or fireplace 

  • The smallest sofa faces the TV so limits everyday use (when using TV) 

  • Less room on entering as the largest sofa on this wall 

Option Three

An option which utilises the bay area to create a separate seating zone to add to the more grown-up theme and layout. 

Pro's 

  • Seating for 7  (and flexible to pull into space)

  • Seating concentrates on the center of the space for talking 

  • Adult themed entertaining space 

  • Space seems more zoned and balanced

  • Window area is an attractive zoned area

  • Flowers in the window on tall thin console side table 

  • Lots of storage

  • Standing light position balances the lights on opposite walls

Con's 

  • May feel more 'busy' with the additional seating

  • Light maybe more limited due to more in window area

  • The most expensive of the designs 

  • The smallest sofa faces the TV so limits everyday use (when using TV) 

  • The storage units are less accessible as more furniture used with in the room

Option Four

The final option looses the additional seating, favoring more space and uses only the existing sofas and a footstool and adds a large console style unit to the window area - adding more storage and focal display there. 

Pro's 

  • Most open space of the designs 

  • Seating concentrates towards the TV corner (but informally)

  • Least cluttered of the designs 

  • Cheapest of the designs with less furniture and smaller rug

  • Window area is an attractive zoned area

  • Flowers in the window on tall console storage table 

  • Lots of storage

  • Side tables and surface for all seats

Con's 

  • Only seats 5 with one less formal low seating (stool)

  • Use of bay isn't accessible (decorative and storage) 

  • The smallest sofa faces the TV so limits everyday use (when using TV) 

  • May not seem as well styled as the more zoned room designs

Concept Design

This design will be light airy and have a slight Scandinavian twist on a contemporary style.  A pallet of white and greyed neutrals will be paired with sophisticated mustard yellows and gold/brass to add that hint of grown-up elegance. The casual scandinavian feel with tone it down with a touch of rattan, some greenery and some heavy neutral textures.
