But no one ever sat on both sofas at once. Someone always sat in the rattan chair and maybe another person on the couch. And did I mention that although I think I'm this grand social entertainer who always has people over and would need tons of seating in our family room, the reality is that most nights it's really just us. So who needs all the sofas clumped in one room? Some re-arranging was necessary. I moved one sofa into our front sitting room which we like to read in. I swapped out two matching vintage 1940's rattan chairs from the sitting room to the family room to replace the space left by the exiting couch and took the mismatched 1960's chair to the sitting room.
& now... balance and harmony! What I like best about the new seating arrangement is that the room feels so much more open and airy. And the best part is that the family room seating is comfortable. Ultimately, this is a lounging and relaxing space for our family. I love how breezy it feels. Let's hope we can keep it this way for a little while. Or for as long as those two rascals in the photo allow it to stay that way, anyway...
