What Houzz contributors are saying:
4. Divided but connectedIf your living room is large enough to hold sizeable parties, break up the space into two distinct conversational groupings. This brings intimacy to each space and a sense of scale, yet allows for cross conversations thanks to the unobstructed sight lines between the two areas. Tip: Placing a sofa with its back to the path between the two zones makes for a more distinct separation between the two groups and affords more privacy.
