Dear AT,

We have just wrapped up a big renovation of our apartment, the bulk of which centered on enlarging and opening up our kitchen.

During this process, we've also refreshed the paint and fixtures throughout.

We've replaced a couple of pieces of furniture (went from a sofa / loveseat combo to just one sofa), and have finally been able to get our furniture in place...

With our new layout, we feel that we now actually have a lot more open space, and while we don't have the need to fill every corner, it seems a bit too open; particularly in the space between the dining table and sofa, and the area behind the two arm chairs.

There are a few additional elements we are looking to work into the space - a lamp of some sort, additional shelving or credenza, and perhaps a side table.

With the exception of the current coffee table, we want to stick with the furniture we have (as some of it is new, and the rest we like).

Would love to get some ideas from the AT community.

Thanks! Alanna
