Our family room is long and thin. And these two chairs always felt like they were floating. Until I moved the coffee table in front of them. Suddenly they are a little bit more grounded and they feel like a place to be instead of just the chairs you have to sit in if you don’t get a place on the sofa.
Proof: both these chairs were occupied all weekend. In a perfect world I’d have a different coffee table here, one that isn’t so leggy, but this $15 thrifted table works for now. I wish I would have done this a year ago. Note to self * never stop trying out new furniture arrangements.
