Furniture Layout Advice For Open Concept Golf Course Home

mjmurphy53711November 7, 2012
Looking for advice on what types of furniture to use, and where. It's all open concept, so the challenges are tying it all together.

A couple thoughts:

I don't think I want a couch/loveseat "back to the wall" of windows which is golf course views.

I don't think I want to walk in straight from the entranceway into the back of a couch.

I'm open though, because backs have to go somewhere, and there is no walls to back up to.

So - couch + loveseat + 2 chairs?

Cough + 4 chairs?

Sectional + chairs?

Ushape sectional?

Sounds like the only 'logical' way is to have the major sofa seating backing the kitchen island, with a pair of chairs flanking the fireplace / TV.

I like the layout of sofa opposite the fireplace maybe a 3 seater. A couple of arm chairs and a small round table in front of the window for sitting reading the weekend papers and having a coffee. Perhaps armless chairs over by the door way to keep the feeling open as you walk into the room. I'm not much on the backs of sofas but a sofa table always helps to soften that look. Lovely home, enjoy

Another alternative is to use a semi circle sofa: with a small eye catching chair in front of the window. This draws the visitors eye to the chair and the view and the curved sofa back softens the flow of traffic. The rug under the pieces adds a feel of comfort to the view.
Examples below:

Note: a small threw the wall fan from the bookcase on the right into the space behind the TV with a temperature regulated on/off switch will protect the TV from over heating.
