Great article with very good tips for those who don't have a lot of room in a room :)) I think it needs repeating that keeping clutter to a minimum and distracting the eye helps achieving a look that doesn't make full-sized furniture feel bulky or imposing.

I was quite happy finding a large corner sofa that fit my den perfectly and covered the back wall fully; the room is rather small (2.5m wide), but luckily it has lots of natural light coming in and it doesn't feel claustrophobic (I prefer the sofa to a desk (and) chair - I'm in front of that screen typing this right now :))!!
