I am planning on buying new living room furniture. My living room is a very odd shape (22.5 x 12) and I have never been too happy with the arrangement of furniture.

Can I fax my layout to get some advice on the pieces that would look best? I am finding it difficult to choose my furniture style without first knowing how it will be placed in my living room.

I have two round glass end tables and an oval coffee table that I don't plan on replacing.

Thanking you in advance for any advice you are able to provide.


Smitty's Solution:

Hi Susan: Thanks for your fax.

I put your room dimensions on my computer and placed the furnishings you are suggesting.

Your plan is very good! I like the arrangement and flexibility.

You can rearrange your room in several different ways with a sofa and 3 chairs.

 # 1 is your plan. I e-mailed this to you today!

 # 2 is to place the two matching chairs side by side where the loveseat was previously located and place the wing chair between the fireplace and TV stand, sofa stays where it is.

 # 3 is to place the sofa where the loveseat was previously located and put the two matching chairs where the sofa is currently located (facing the fireplace).

 So you have the best of all worlds with these furniture choices! The next step is to select a suitable colour scheme for your new sofa and chairs. Since you are keeping your wing chair it would be helpful if you could bring a sample of the fabric to our showroom. A photo of the chair for style consideration would also be helpful. I would also want to know the colour of your walls and what type of flooring as well.

Brentwood have so many amazing fabrics I know we can find something lovely for your room.
