Previously, the room had Berber carpet. It was 15+ years old, stained, and dirty. It had started to come up around the edges. Time for it to go!
We gave our old couch, and two chairs to my dad.
The white rectangle in front of the fireplace is the door to the cabinet on the left. Mark took off the door when he was trying to decide if the carpet went underneath the cabinet (it did) and whether he should cut it off or take the the entire cabinet out. He opted to cut off the carpet underneath the cabinet.
Don't cha love it! It's so pretty and shiny that it makes our other floor look old. We have new furniture now. Maybe I will add a picture of that at a later date.
