Two leather host and hostess armchairs flank each side of the flat screen television in the living room and can be transferred into the dining room for larger dinner parties. “The reason we put the host and hostess chairs in the living room under the big screen TV is for traffic flow. It makes the space more open and it’s not as crowded and confusing. I think that’s really important when you’re doing dining rooms that you really want that sense that it’s cleaned up, it’s neater and it’s tidier, especially when we are in this open floor plan,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum.
So as not to block views from the kitchen, the dining room's host and hostess chairs were relocated to the living room where they carve out a seating area next to an oversized floor mirror constructed from reclaimed wood.
