Have you noticed homes today, especially new ones, lack a formal living room. I kind of agree that there is no real need for a formal space, unless you are doing a lot of "formal" entertaining. My idea of entertaining is very informal. Come in, find a comfy spot; eat and drink. I have to tell you that the lack of space is a draw back though. I don't want it to be formal, just a great space, for reading, or great conversations, or just hanging out with a sandwich. This is room by David Kleingberg is listed in the library section of his portfolio, and yes there are books, and you may do some reading here. But it's so much more no?
