Need help with family room layout
January 9, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hi I would greatly appreciate input on my family room layout. As seen in pics below, its a 16x20 room with high celing. I already posted asking about the fireplace dilemma, and we are installing a mantel shelf across, about 10' wide, same length as step. We are leaving the main walls, bm nimbus and painting the entire brick wall bm vintage charm. we plan on putting in two clean line sofas (in eggplant color), one 90", facing fireplace, and one 82", creating sort of an L. we will have a 40: round ottoman and two upholstered chairs, about 32" wide, facing the smaller sofa. The entire setup will be a bit moved up toward the fireplace allowing a bit of a walkway to get the the back den, thru the french doors.
My question is, is this a good set up for my room, I need as much seating as possible, and are the dimensions of the furniture appropriate for my space? Should I be going with smaller chairs, or will these work out fine?
the third pic shows the layout i thought of but all furniture will be moved closer to fireplace
Thanks so much for all your input...

fyi the chairs will be gray, the rug is an eggplant and gray geom print, we have open metal work end tables with glass tops, stunning artwork for wall facing fireplace, and a beutiful mirror for the mantel shelf. screens will be changed to black and the gold framed painting is coming down...
will post some pics of furnishings here

Hi---looks Beautiful to me! I do prefer the lighter chair so that there is some contrast to the wood floor and rug. Eggplant sofas, eh? You're brave-I like that... A sectional could work well in this space too-just an option for you-think it would be Fab in eggplant/plum hue. Attaching a photo. Good Luck!

thanks natalie but i think well stick with the two sofas...
was just hoping that all the dimensions would work, especially the chairs
it s hard to know how everything will fit till the furniture comes in...
im loving the colors were working with, very excited about that!

The dimensions look fine---once you get the furniture in, you can play with the layout if need be.
Try it both ways-how you have it pictured and switching places with the smaller sofa and chairs to see which feels more comfortable and in proportion with the FP- plus which is easier to navigate.
Keep us posted---it's going to look great. Good Luck!
