I just finished drawing some living room floor plans for a wonderful new client and the one we have decided on calls for two sofas, one of which is in front of the window. When doing a floor plan (space planning), one of the areas to consider is placement of the TV. When clients say the TV doesn't have to go in a room we are working on - it can go in the family room, basement, etc., I get really excited. Designing around a TV can get tricky especially when there are only so many walls for furniture placement. In this case, placing a sofa in front of the window was the only option to accommodate the TV and maximize seating. My client said she wasn't sure about placing a sofa in front of a window so I'm hoping the following images will convince her otherwise.
