My thoughts remains to be occupied with ideas of our future household room. I’ve been dreaming of colours (which I shared in yesterday’s put up), finishes, fixtures, fireplaces, furnishings, and a lot extra. Each time I’ve dreamed about our future household room, I’ve at all times imagined a luxurious, cozy sectional in there. And but, each time I do a flooring plan of the room, I embody this furnishings association.
So in my thoughts, I see a giant sectional. In drawings, I at all times present two sofas and two chairs.
In the long run, I’m undecided which concept will win out. I really need that room to be as cozy and cozy as potential for Matt and me, because it’s our home, and we’ll be those utilizing that room essentially the most. However I additionally should understand that we have now individuals in our house as soon as per week, and typically twice per week proper now, and I’m hoping that we’ll do much more entertaining as soon as the addition is constructed.
So with that in thoughts, is a sectional even a good suggestion? I think about myself curled up within the nook of a sectional beneath a comfy blanket on a winter night time, a hearth within the hearth, a film taking part in on the TV, and a cup of scorching chocolate in hand. That sounds superb. That’s the picture in my thoughts each time I image our household room with a sectional couch.
However then I attempt to think about our home on an evening when we have now individuals over, and it’s arduous to think about that understanding properly. I like a sectional that has a chaise lounge on the tip, like this one…
However then I attempt to think about being that individual within the group who’s caught on the chaise lounge part in a gaggle setting. I believe it could be awkward. 😀
So sadly, I believe I positively should rule out that fashion of sectional. Then there’s the sort that wraps round with extra seating like this one…
However I actually can’t think about greater than 4 individuals sitting comfortably on that sectional. Proper? I might think about that folks wouldn’t need to get too near the nook as a result of they might need to keep away from the potential of their knees touching. So most individuals would have a tendency to take a seat in the direction of the ends. I believe if greater than 4 individuals needed to squeeze on there, they might begin to really feel like their private house was being invaded.
Even one thing like this looks as if it could seat a most of 5 individuals comfortably.
So I believe that’s why I at all times revert again to 2 sofas and two chairs once I do drawings of the furnishings association. I does give me that symmetry that my mind at all times appears to desire and want. However this association additionally looks as if it could seat extra individuals.
Our present couch can seat as much as three individuals comfortably, with out individuals feeling too crowded. And this couch is simply over 80 inches lengthy.
So if I’ve two of these plus two chairs, that’s ready-made seating for eight individuals. Add a couple of stackable chairs, and I believe we will match 14 comfortably, and extra if we push the chairs again to make extra room.
That does appear extra sensible for our functions, and for our future plans. However I nonetheless image a luxurious sectional in that room each time I think about what it can feel and appear like when it’s completed. Inform me your ideas on sectionals. Do you have got one? Do you prefer it? Does it really restrict seating with massive teams like I think about it could?
