Don't buy furniture you don't need to fill a space you won't use. I f you have a dining table elsewhere, why add another? Same goes for if you eat on the couch and don't entertain. A bit of open space is a good thing. I'd recomment a large rug under your lounge space and the same size and style, colours etc. parallel in the dead space. This will ground the area. A large picture on the wall next to the couch and centred above the dead space rug will also give it more purpose and make it look intentional and "finished". Finally if you wanted to add some occasional seating for guests or feet, you could always add a couple of single ottomans on the edge of the dead space rug, facing the lounge area. Good luck!

What about a Venus Fly Trap plant on the window sill? It may help a little bit. There are other bug eating varieties too. I found some info here: http://www.springboardmagazine.com/science/carnivorousplants.htm

Sorry but this is just plain tacky. The paint colour and finish are all wrong and so are the handles. I would like to have seen the glitz and glam of the style amped up in the reno. You can't try and hide the original style. A gloss black or electric blue, keeping the gold detailing would have been much more effective and in keeping with the style. More kitsch glam and less dudd dresser. Disappointing.
