Help with Living Room Layout (Sofa/Sectional Options)

smallhousebigideasJanuary 22, 2013

We're redoing the furniture in our small living room and wondering which option would work best. Attached pic shows current layout and dimensions. Which layout would you choose?

1) L-Shaped 99" x 99" Sectional along blue and red lines

-part of the sectional by the window would block a heating vent. we're already blocking one (that we closed) with the tv stand...
-too big visually?

2) Sofa + chair by window (current layout)
-if we went this route, is there room for a second chair across from the one by the window?

3) Sofa + loveseat
-seems like it'd be even "bigger" than the sectional option since the pieces couldn't be flush to the corner of the room

I think that I would hesitate to block both heat vents and access to open and close the windows or blinds. That is one fabulous window. What a feature!
What about a sofa with a small left chaise placed where the media console is now? It would be like a sectional, but would not come down past the heat vent or block the window as much.
I like your current arrangement too. It looks like there may be room for another chair.

I think the sofa and a pair of chairs would work well although you could use a small corner sectional 99 by 99 and get a defelector for the heating register to defelect the heat outward if you have room for the deflector.
