Good Questions: Downsizing a Living Room

Los Angeles

Pin it button big

Hello Apartment Therapy! My mom is downsizing and moving into a MUCH smaller space. The problem is the living room. It is an odd shape and there is a fireplace right up against the wall and next to it a sliding glass door. She wants to replace the door with french doors but is unsure of how to arrange her furniture...

Got a good question you'd like answered? Send your queries and a photo or two illustrating your question, and we'll see if the Apartment Therapy team or our readers can help you out.

She would love to have the focus on the fireplace. Is there anyway to do this without having two distinct seating areas? (There is a dining area opposite the fireplace) Any suggestions from the Apartment Therapy community would be much appreciated!! Thanks so much, Katherine

PS I didn't know which "area" to send this question to. Can it just be for the "main" section?
