Therefore you made a studio apartment into a continuous kitchen and stained with food and liquids carpet and have done puffs in a completely new sofa?
There are large dining tables in both apartments. Both can be moved at will. Dining table in the loft could push back from the window and eat as it should be, and not distribute food at the recreation area with upholstered furniture. It's just a matter of your personal culture and education.
With best wishes.
