Often what makes a floor plan successful, especially in large open spaces, is to make multiple seating areas and allow the conversational circles to merge and regroup. I always look for seating that can swivel and roll. I use upholstered ottomans on wheels. These ottomans offer an informal perch that can easily move and be housed under a coffee or sofa table when not needed.
A furniture floor plan that offers "fluidity" is successful, it's grown up, yet the flexibility makes it youthful. It allows for intimacy when there are just a few and can provide more space when you have a crowd!
