Here is a client's loft/office space before I made some suggestions to open up the space:
As you come up the stairs to the second floor this loft/office space is the first thing you see. I felt crowded, even though there is obvious room to walk around. The office chair's 'back' to the room bothered me from the basics of feng shui that I know about too.
I sketched out a rough drawing of where the desk and love seat could be positioned and here is the end result:
Viola! Nothing was removed, but the position of the desk against the half wall opens up the space now that more of the whole wall can be seen. The dresser/cabinet stands out more now, but balances the desk too along the new wall, and the love seat feels more tucked in against the whole wall.
