Despite its large size, its low profile made it perfect for our walls of windows. The previous couch (which was not particularly high-backed) kept bumping into the plantation shutters and forcing them closed. The view is straight out to our backyard, and it is one of the best parts of this room – and you know how I feel about all the natural light – so the height of the Cube is absolutely perfect. The low profile also helps accentuate the room’s high ceilings and makes it feel so much larger even though much more floor space is actually covered by the sectional.
It's not humanly possible to get cozy on a love seat and you know it. So what's a tiny living room to do? Try the exact opposite, actually. The best sofas for small rooms turn out to be the biggest: sectionals! We realize this is a counterintuitive suggestion—Won't my itsy-bitsy room look totally cramped with a massive sectional in it?—but the best ideas so often are. "Sometimes using several small pieces can make a room feel cluttered," says Ashley Darryl, speaking about the sofa-chair-table cluster that's almost instinctive in a small living room.
I think the round shape makes it feel like there’s much more floor space and feels balanced no matter how far it is from the corner of the sectional… And mom doesn’t have to go batty when it gets pushed askew by the littles. Suffice it to say, I love how our family room turned out. And I’m excited to share with you more details about the space…
