Good Questions: How Should I Arrange The Left-Over Furniture?

Pin it button
Hello AT,

I've just moved the dining table out of our living room, but I'm
having a hard time deciding how to arrange the furniture that's left over. The room has very few solid walls -- two entries (one with open double doors), two long windows (one with a radiator in front), and another wall with a weird bump-out...

Right now I feel like the room looks like a trapezoid with big chunky pieces at angles in the corners. Unfortunately, after planning as much as possible, the French door can't open any further, and I need the screen to hold open the window grate, so I'm not sure how to minimize those corner angles.

As soon as we buy a flat-screen television, I'll get rid of the
lateral file. However, I do like the television at that angle -- I
really don't want it across from the settee. I also want to replace
the bookcase, but I'd like to keep the other pieces as much as possible.

I really would appreciate any suggestions!

Thanks! Amber
