Client look see… before presentation day…


Starting with the floor plan no 1

floor plan no 1

With this floor plan the television is over the loveseat as an art piece giving clients full view from the 2 recliners. There is full access to the family room area from both sides of the island, remember… the dining area is on the top right of this floor plan.

This space plan also works for having guests over, hanging out with the person or persons cooking in the kitchen. With a new kitchen this is important in my mind…

To be added to this floor plan are two small 18”x18” coffee table type pieces in front of the loveseat.

Canadel BEN089010505M18

I have a piece from the company Canadel I use for this, that you will really like.  Everyone needs a place to put down a drink. (it can also be used as an extra seat at the kitchen or dining table when needed)


Now on to floor plan no 2

floor plan no 2

in this floor plan I have used all the same pieces, faced the 2 recliners towards the long wall, using the hall table as a console for the vcr, dvd etc. That being said we could also change this piece out for an entertainment console below the television on the wall.

The opening is very narrow towards the dining area, which means you would always have to walk through the kitchen to get to the dining table.  Not something I would think my clients would enjoy. 

I personally think this floor plan is not very welcoming for visiting guests, but we all wanted to try this space plan to see how it would work and feel.

In this plan I would add only one small 18”x18” coffee table piece in front of the loveseat. (the same piece in the picture above)


Well that is what I have come up with, space planning helps a great deal, this gives us all a to-scale (1/4”=1’0”) look at how the furniture is going to fit and how the room is going to feel.


These pictures are reminders of amazing pieces that will be part of your new room and I used them as inspiration…

Now this is where I am with the fabrics and area rug…

This is the Talbot Loveseat in the fabric we found together the other day.

This is the Isabelle Narrow Rectangle table with shelf I have used beside the loveseat. Finish to be worked out later. This table would have your lamp on it.

This is the Impulse Recliner that you sat on the other day, done up in the fabric you picked.

640220 Isabelle Wedge ET

This is the Isabelle Wedge table I have used between the 2 recliners, not sure what finish yet, we can work that out later.

I do not have a picture of the hall table/console/entertainment piece to insert here, I do have a pdf sheet at my office that we will go through together, and decide which piece works for you and your new room.



This is the area rug I found that works so well with both fabrics.

I laid out all the samples so you can see them together, I played with a few new paint colours  using your kitchen sample paint colour (just wanted to see if I could find something interesting), will show you them and any others I find over the weekend on presentation day.


So have a good look and read of all the above, email me at my home email over the weekend and let me know what you think of everything so far…   (I do not have a way into my office email from home)
