Q: Hello, Apartment Therapy! I am in dire need of advice. My boyfriend and I have this big (and rather comfy) red sofa. After moving into a 715 square foot apartment, we're hopelessly clueless on how to design around it. I lean towards a more minimalist Danish design aesthetic, while the man of the house just goes along with anything (as long as it's not pink).

I'm racking my brain over what type of wood would go best for coffee tables or bookshelves (or even if we should go metal/glass/plexiglass), what color the walls should be painted, etc. We don't get much light in our living room so we're trying to take that into consideration.

I've attached a photo of the couch — did I mention it's also pretty sizable haha? Any advice you could give would be great!
