More Home as Art

Most of us have faced this creative and practical challenge: What can I do with this awkward room layout?  And most importantly, how do I arrive at a layout that creates harmony, balance and an artful appearance.  Apartment Therapy asked this question recently in this article.

I think I would try placing the two chairs opposite the sofa, to the left of the fireplace, with their backs to the left side entry to the room and a small side table between them and turning the coffee table and placing it in front of the sofa.  Removing all the other furniture around the sofa and instead placing one medium-tall plant to the right of the sofa may be nice too.   What would you do?
