First of all, I suck at interior design. That's why I'm throwing this out to Foo. The big question my wife and I are debating is whether or not we need a coffee table in our new living room layout. I've never lived in a house without a coffee table, or a sofa for that matter ... it's just weird! What do you guys think? Or would you suggest a completely different layout? Keep in mind, our living room is pretty small.
We're starting with a clean slate and tossing out/donating all our old furniture. Below is a first kick-at-the-can in laying out our new furniture. Somehow it looks too sparse to me ... although like I said, I suck at interior design. The big rectangular thing in the middle of the room is a throw rug, the rest are chairs and small end tables. Behind the large, round nest chair is a floor lamp.
The only thing we've purchased so far is the dining room table and chairs, the rest is open to discussion ... except for the awesome nest chair (61" round chair). Below the layout plan are some pics of furniture we're going to purchase.
