Help with family room
We have been in our new-build house for under a year and I am finally ready to start decorating. My family room is a blank slate. We have a TV armoire on the wall beside the stairs (don't like it above the fireplace) and we just purchased a new leather sectional. This will go along the window with the chaise side with its back to the kitchen. (Mine is in chocolate brown in the opposite configuration to the one in the photo. We also have a 3-seater on the long side) We also purchased the matching rectangular ottoman to use with a tray. My questions are these:
1) I don't know whether to put an accent chair or an end table at the end of the couch by the fireplace. I feel like we would need more places to put down drinks etc. but would also like the extra seating.
2) One thought I had was a sofa table along the window. The problem is that I have plantation shutters, which I love, and that the window goes down to 18" from the floor, so the table would be above the window sill. Problem? Thoughts?
Any other suggestions are welcome too. I'm planning on a rug this spring as well.
