As we evaluated your project , we choose two of our options for your Living Room .In the first one as followed, we are trying to make a warm and cozy space with an Irish taste. So, first of all we add some decorative wooden timber under the ceiling ( without any necessary changes or demolishing to the ceiling ) then we add some old-fashioned lighting under the each main beam.
Due to make a warm space we try to use warm colors for furniture such as red-brown one. Plus a unique recliner chair just front of TV which you can seat and lean on it behind a rustic potable table , near to your hutch to hold your books and stuffs.
For the lay-out of space we use a L-shaped couch just in front of the entry. By this lay-out we divide your living room to 2 parts, one with L-shaped couch is more public than in front of TV, and a unique Bean-Bag type chair which can be used to cooperate with both spaces if you need a company.
As you can see in the plan the L-shaped couch can be seated by 6 persons and one seat as Bean_bag type chair so at least you have 7 seats (without your recliner chair of course)
