Good Questions: Perfect Seating Choice for Oddly Shaped Room?

ATDC reader Loren is back for more advice on seating for her oddly shaped living room:

"After all the great responses to my question about layout for my oddly shaped living room, I've finally come up with a couple of options to consider. However, these are reliant on finding the right pieces to make them look the way I want them to.

Right now that means I'm on a quest for the perfect sofa/seating arrangement around a TV mounted on the eight-foot wall that backs up against the bathroom.

I kind of like the idea of using a small sectional to create flow and separation for this part of the room. I love the look and functionality (a sleeper *and* a storage ottoman!) of the the Dawson sectional from Room and Board, but not the price tag. So my first question is does anyone know of any lower-cost but still reasonably quality alternatives?

As an alternative, I'm considering the Goodwin collection from West Elm, probably a combination of the sleeper sofa and the armchair. Even with those I'll have to wait for them to go on sale, but that gives me time to save a bit. I'm not always sold on West Elm's durability and comfort, however. Does anyone have any experience with the Goodwin line?

Thanks! Loren"

Loren, we love the functionality of the Dawson, but can appreciate your budgetary concerns. We're sharing this question with our readers who may have experiences to share with either line...
