After: Den Seating

The sofa fits along one wall without taking up too much floor space.

Because this room is quite small, H&H style editor Michael Penney incorporated furniture that was fairly shallow. The bookshelf at the end of the room is only about 12 inches deep, for instance. The side table (right) was a junk find that he painted out, and tucked away neatly beside the sofa. Again, he picked up the blue in the sofa pattern with affordable blue vases from Value Village and Pier 1 Imports. Read more on decorating his main floor.
