Strongly leaning toward two of these: Still waiting on bench suggestions to go with. These would not be great with the Tafel. Thinking of something upholstered.
A bench is better than the floor, which is the alternative. Matt, in all fairness to poor P-bear, your Superoblong is as overstuffed as they come.
Still no other contenders.
This is a head-scratcher. Is it a metaphor or the start of a riddle?
A pair of chairs would be in addition to the Tafel. The challenge is that we need more seating to face or interact with those two chairs which are neither: (a) also chairs or (b) another sofa. Maybe my imagination is running short, but that leaves benches. We have in mind a use for a more regular bench nearby. So, we need a bench that is differentiated, yet useful and attractive.

Hence, low-profile furniture than can serve more than one purpose are of premium value. We are thinking of benches because they are bi-directional and can be part of two adjacent living areas at the same time.
