And yes, Deborah, folk don't sit in lines unless they've come to gawp at their God, the TV! I see sitting rooms with a line of seating facing a screen that fills the wall. No one can snug up with friends and a cuppa with this arrangement nor play scrabble on the non-existent table or even curl up with a book in a cosy nook.... AND a chap in a furniture store told me that 3 seaters rarely get used by 3 people anyway... A row of people is not conducive to conversation...

So agree, Cassandra. Same holds for rows of 'bar stools'. They work in bars, where you don't necessarily want to make conversation, but not in a family! We spend our evenings reading, talking and talking politics ....

It's taken me years to even begin to crack the knack of room layout, especially living room design. Bedroom design is tricky, too, and I see there's a story about small bedroom design that's come up. I'm still learning - I never feel I've got it quite right. I'll keep working on it!
