What makes "the great room” a great room is the scale of this multipurpose space
The great rooms that we encounter in ranch houses or mountain homes dictate that the proportions of the furniture are substantial enough to balance the weight of the space. This balance is perfectly achieved through large sectionals in fabric or leather, or matching facing sofa. The chairs are large and inviting, and the leathers distressed, as if the chair has been sat in and enjoyed many times.
Occasional chairs in leather and cowhide provide additional seating for guest and are the perfect flankers for stone fireplaces.
