- It is a different, unexpected, a cool look.
- One table can be pulled out and all four chairs put around it for a great card game.
- When you need to clear the area of the tables for large gatherings, it will be less cumbersome, and easier to move.
This table (above) pictured is from West Elm. It also comes in chocolate.
The far wall, above the built-in bench and two tables, will need a nice large piece or collection of art. This piece below is from Uttermost, (Landscape with Trees) and is a large 80 x 42. Something this size would be great.
Select a great sectional- the largest one you can comfortably fit. You want it to seat a lot of people, as well as fill the space. Check out the Bixby by Nathan Anthony. (I can send you fabrics if you want). Nathan Anthony is a great source for sectionals. They have a lot to choose from- and very cool styles. (as well as great prices)
You have a long wall to your right, as you enter your large room. Long walls are just asking to be "broken up". One way to do this is by putting a console table on part of the wall. I am suggesting the portion of the wall in the "Pilates" area. (The one above is the Tanner Console table form Pottery Barn.) I liked how it had stools under it, giving you extra seating for your large groups. You then hang something (perhaps a mirror- the one below is Bahari- by Uttermost 39 x 43) above the console, and then treat the other part of the wall separately, perhaps with a grouping of family photos, like I talked about in this post. Notice that I have a single item above the console, and a grouping on the wall beside it. This can be reversed, with one large picture on the wall, (make sure it is large enough) and a grouping over the console- but don't have two groupings on the same wall.
