I've been thinking a lot about my living room lately and how to layout the furniture. The layout below is what I have planned for now: a sofa, two comfortable chairs, a coffee table, and then a smaller side chair next to the fireplace. Once I get everything in (it has all been ordered) I am going to reevaluate and see if two small benches or ottomans will fit in front of the fireplace. It's a look that I'm a fan of because it's a great place to bring in some pattern plus it provides extra seating. Here's my living room floor plan (the fireplace is between the two windows):
And here are some rooms that are inspiring this design plan:

I love the pattern that the ottomans add in the living room below:
