The apartment has always been rented furnished, and, the landlord says, the furniture has always been arranged this way. The configuration seems to make the most sense.

Nonsense, I think. Vomitously boring, I think. Where are the quirks? The surprises? My brain instantly scrambles to reconfigure the space into a less traditional layout using the furniture I will bring to it. When I move into the place, I want it to make sense without being stultifying in its sensibility.

Is there an unwritten LAW that dictates that if a fireplace is part of the room, the sofa must face it?
