Q: I've just been re-reading all your helpful tips on having a party since we're having our first housewarming in our NYC apartment. The suggestions for lighting and structure were definitely an education. However, the major problem we're facing is that, when facing the living room, the couch is on the left, facing the TV & TV table on the right, with the windows (and large radiator) straight ahead in the middle. Moving the couch in front of the window would take up tons of space because of the radiator. Putting chairs at the entrance of the room would cut off the flow between kitchen and living room. We have no idea how to make this space more inviting so that those sitting down don't just face the TV. Any tips?Sent by Anna
