2. Try standalone sofa seatingIf you’re not prepared to commit to a built-in, you can create an eat-in experience that’s just as stylish and functional with a freestanding sofa arrangement. You should position the sofa with its back to a wall. This keeps sight lines uninterrupted, creating an inviting feel as you walk toward the table.Sofa seats are typically a bit lower than a dining chair, so make sure your table is the right height for you to sit comfortably. With that in mind, think about going custom with the sofa so you can determine a suitable height that will work well with most tables.
