I’ve loved the four lounge chair configuration for quite some time. Offering perfect radial symmetry, considering your personal space, and allowing you to face the people you are spending time with, it’s an equal endeavour, without hierarchy. I also think it brings out the primal person in me, because I especially love the idea of a fireplace near or a fire pit in the center.
The cocktail table height is important, otherwise it would be a dining room scenario, but try a card height table for working on your laptop, afternoon tea and poker game evenings. You need some space for this floor plan, but it’s a great solution for all those formal rooms we don’t use anyway.
