Q: Help! We recently moved into a new house. I am trying to figure out how to place the exisiting furniture and add another sofa that has been in storage. We frequently have company and we need additional seating. I hate that my husband's huge TV takes up an entire wall. Should I place the TV next to the fireplace where the bookcase currently stands? Would that detract from the fireplace? Anyone have any suggestions? The sofa in the picture floats. The living room opens up to the kitchen and there is an additional 4 feet behind the sofa before the kitchen starts. Also, the ledge in front of the fireplace extends all the way in front of the window:
Also, if you have any suggestions as to how to decorate the large wall opposite of the TV, I am open! Thank you so much! I really need some help! :)
