I had to do it again...
Shuffle that is!
Back in March I rearranged the living room as seen "here"
Some family dropped in on us one evening and I turned towards the living room to offer them to come sit down and I realized it was too awkward while entering the room- almost as if it were boxed off and ever since then it's been bugging me. There was only a wedge of room between the sofa and the chair to get in the room otherwise you had to work towards the small red chair to go around- too much work!
I finally decided to switch the sofa back to the wall area and I flanked the sofa with the two matching end tables and as soon as the 2nd lamp comes in I'll have that part taken care of.
This room may seem formal but trust me it gets used everyday. The pillows get moved off while were sitting but I faithfully put them back in place each night! This comes from basic training after having kids and clearing the room of toys daily! The sofa is 2 yrs old and the leather recliners are 9 years old which I can hardly believe!
Even though I used the card table as an accent and it may feel like it's blocking it really isn't- you can still get into the room much easier than before.
I have to put a small accent table next to the red coral chair.
I swapped the items to use on this table that had been on the Tuscan striped chest that's over to the left with the lamp and pictures that were on here and it all worked out nicely!
On a recent stop I found this candle holder at Pottery Barn- I guess it's discontinued but they had a few pieces from this group in the store and this size seemed right to go near the lamp...whenever it comes! Actually it did come in but the glaze on the lamp had been done differently so the store where I ordered it from is in contact with the factory about it. Fortunately it's a US made product and they can do this!
This is the lamp that I'm waiting for the mate to go with.
Whites and Creams have added the updated look I wanted.
One time when I was stacking pillows while moving things around these two ended up together and I decided I liked it so now they reside together on this wing back recliner.
So there you have it....living room shuffled once again!
