What kind of chairs to put in family room?

yote1341March 21, 2013

I am trying to decide what kind of chairs to buy. I bought a new couch, and really like it because it is nice and long for my very tall husband. I was thinking about having leather recliners (that are more formal and not your typical "rocking" recliners) but my husband pointed out that it's hard to stretch them out in the family room because of the coffee table in front of the couch. He suggested getting one recliner and one chair with the couch, but I like the look of two matching chairs and one couch. I think club chairs would look nice, but want to make sure they are comfortable since we spend a lot of time in there watching TV and socializing. Any ideas? Ottomans would help, but I feel like they would make it look clunky. I want a chair big enough for my tall husband, but I am short and hate when my feet dangle from chairs!

Hi yote1341,

Try asking again at the link below, which is a very fast moving forum. Chances are though that they will want to see more of the room, or ask for the dimensions.

My first quesstion would be if the sofa could maybe be set facing the TV center and then have the chairs on either wall. The coffee table looks like it is pretty close to the sofa too. The 'suggested distance' is 18" but it's fine to go a little closer.
