Versatile and FUNctional Floor plan
I have an
new client with young kids. She’s so excited to freshen up her family room which is large and bright but long and narrow.
We’re going to make this space more functional for her kids so my number one priority is to make a comfortable cozy spot for the kids to watch TV and also provide additional seating for entertaining and adult conversation.
Since the room is so large I’m going to design two seating areas … one for the kids to watch TV and one for the adults to hang out and chat and have a cocktail or two or six:)
All the while keeping in mind this could be a room that evolves and changes as her kids get older so I’m going to provide her with a very versatile floor plan.
My answer? Four chairs and an ottoman. It’s fun, fresh and modern and if she gets bored with the look someday she can move the chairs around the house!

Here’s the floor plan
You can see the room is long and rectangular but plenty big for two seating areas.
When you walk into the room you will be greeted by the four funky fun chairs and a table that will immediately make you want to sit down, relax and stay awhile.
But if you want to catch up on the latest sponge-bob square pants episode the four chairs will not obstruct your race to the sofa. Perfect, right?
Here’s a few chairs that may work in your home…
