Decorating & Furniture/decorating


Hello.  when you enter my home you walk into a small mud room that leads to a very large  front to back family room.  The front of the family room it is very much an extension of the mudroom with a large triple window.  I would like to put some piece of furniture in front of window but am not sure if what I am thinking of would work.  I thought two arm chairs with a table in-between them  My tv and sectional are towards the other end of the room    Thank you

Hi Johanne,

Thanks for writing me here at AllExperts.  

If you want to create a sitting area in front of the window, two chairs and a table are an excellent idea.  If you do that, angle the chairs rather than lining them up with the window wall.  It will add some warmth to the vista.

The other consideration would be to add a floor lamp so that you could utilize that space as a reading area.  That and a cozy throw over one of the chairs would be lovely.

Visit my web site at: Decor: I've written about it, planned it, designed it and colored it, and I've never stopped loving it. It's not what you spend, or who made it, it's how it makes you feel.


College, advertising, public relations, marketing, free-lance writing and a plethora of creative endeavors have led me here. As an entrepreneur in decorative product design, I learned the hard way how tough it can be to be in business for yourself. A stint at a law firm taught me humility too. Some three thousand questions ago, I wondered if I could really help. Obviously, I'm still here and still taking your questions. God Bless You!
