I just bought a small condo and I am looking to buy living room type furniture. My dilemma is the size and shape of the room. It is oblong and I am trying to maximize my seating. In addition we are in our 60s and need furniture that is comfortable and complicit with our needs. Some styles that I like are the rolled arms and electric reclining couches. I prefer no skirting on furniture so that my Rhomba cleaner can get under the furniture. I am also trying to maximize my seating.
One idea with an oblong living room would be to create multiple sitting areas. And, since you want to maximize seating, some sort of sectional could work out great. These days, not all sectionals are so big they take over the room. You can find one with power, as you mentioned liking, that comes in a number of sizes. Other options, especially if you are considering splitting up the space, are cocktail ottomans that could be used as a table or extra seating in a pinch.
