Q: My husband and I just bought a house. In trying to make it a home, I'm trying to figure out what furniture we need and how best to utilize the space. What I would like to do, though, is to have a large farm table to accommodate 8-10 guests, but we also want some kind of lounge type space too. I feel like the logical place for a table is in the area in the foreground of the picture, which would leave a small space between the end of the kitchen cabinets and dining area for couches and a coffee table. But I feel like having a lounge area in the kitchen is too weird. How do I best plan this space?
