I have this rather unattractive chair, BUT it must stay and i much prefer it in this spot, i dont use the other furniture in the living room as i have difficulty rising from furniture, so this brown chair is a lift chair. So i was wanting to put my cabinet back in this spot like it was in the first picture, trying to make a focal point as its the first wall you see coming into our home.

As you will see in the pictures the mirror needs to move over and be centred above the cabinet, BUT AND ITS A BIG BUT i think the wall will look odd as it will have this big bare spot off to the left of the cabinet. I can't put a plant there like my before picture, which balanced things, i need the space behind my chair for it to recline AND the cabinet cant slide over any further or my chair wont work.

Should i just forget it and remove the cabinet, any suggestions would be welcomed. Oh and there is no other floor plan i can do, tried them all and this one works best

IS THERE ANY HOPE? bahhhha wahhhhhha

Hi Janet! I think I would move the mirror back over the cabinet and try pulling your chair out more so the plant can go back there again. Will that work? It looks like your chair could come forward quite a bit...on to the rug even. If not, how about a thinner plant of some kind? Or nothing in the corner would be OK for the minimalists!Let us know what you decide...Debbie

Hi Janet. I love the look of the mirror over the cabinet. If you do move the mirror over the cabinet again, can you take a picture and post it. That way we can see what it looks like and maybe give you some advice?

I also wanted to thank you for visiting me at my blog!

I think it would be good to put the mirror back over the chest; it looks as if it belongs there!

As for having a blank or empty corner, that's OK. The eye appreciates some "resting" space in a room. Some of the greatest decorators put in empty spaces on purpose.

Good luck! I'll be interested to see what you decide.

Best... Cass
