As of late, I have been drawn to recreating a new cozier seating arrangement for my formal living space. Out with the routine and into rethinking the usual. I adore rooms that if space allows, have several intimate areas for conversation. Have you ever found yourself the unlucky guest at a social gathering tucked in a corner, or on the far end of a sofa out of a conversational range? You are desperately straining to hear the rattle of political opinions or the gab about the trashy neighbor down the street? It's always nice to be able to have a cozy spot to sit, sip and engage in meaningful dialogue, face to face, comfortably.
To fuel my need for change, I so love a more unorthodox approach to seating such as the two matching banquet style pieces, or the grouping of two pairs of deco antique chairs. My choice of choices gives a shout out to the room designed by Burnham Design of California. It has what I'm longing for with it's four over-sized wing chairs with their nail head trim, placed around a substantial round coffee table. Basically, it's all in check.
