Q: My wife and I just moved into a sweet house in Santa Fe, New Mexico. We're still trying to make our furniture work in the living room. Right now it seems too crowded and wondering if the lovely Apartment Therapy readers might suggest some options. We're willing to replace, remove or re-arrange (the pop chair stays somewhere).

Editor - We like the eclectic and colorful nature of the room, but we'd start by replacing two pieces to reduce the sense of clutter: the futon and the coffee table. The futon has too much of an amorphous blobby shape compared to every other piece in the room, distracting the eye, while the coffee table seems too high comparatively with the rest of the furnishings. Perhaps moving the cat tree to a different corner would also open the room a bit (and you know we love our cats, but cat trees are often an eyesore). What else, Apartment Therapy readers?
