There's nothing like a warm comfy den off the kitchen area.  This room required smaller scale chairs, where a person can enjoy their conversation with people on the couch as well as see the tv behind them.  We went with a custom swivel chair to allow people enjoy conversations with people in the kitchen area and the couch, as well as swivel to see the tv behind them.  The warm blues marry back to the rest of the blue tones in the house allowing for a consistent flow throughout.
