This handsome living room is eye catching with its strong neutrals, and the designer also pulled off major challenges. The living room is just beyond the front door, so a long console table was placed behind the first sofa to create a sense of entry. The two facing sofas provide great symmetry, adding to the transitional feel of the room. Two chairs were placed in front of the fireplace, which is in the corner. The fireplace in this case acts as a backdrop rather than the focal point.
