Q: I have a small apartment, and just bought this brand new white couch. It seats about 3 people if you squeeze in. I was thinking about adding an armchair but am not 100% sure where I would put it. I like the open floor plan, so I don't want to make the space feel smaller by putting a large chair in the middle of the space.

What do you think? What would be a good way to add more seating without making the room feel cramped?
