We always struggle with seating in our living room. We recently "changed" things up, by moving the existing furniture to the family room, and bringing the family room sofa up to the living room. We ordered new wing back chairs and a chaise which should be arriving soon. When all the kids come with their kids and significant others, everyone gathers in the living room. Problem is there is never enough seating. I managed to pick up a very nice small checkered upholstery fabric at Hobby Lobby to cover a worn and tired stool that can now be used for additional seating. It looks rather nice with the new pieces and as a bonus I can put my feet up after a long day of quilting!
