We have an rl which is pretty close to the re in size/layout. We have the large ottoman, use it perpendicular to the recliners and fireplace, parallel to the sofa (like a coffee table). To travel, we just turn it 90 degrees to line it up with te island (but still on the carpet). We found that adding triangular furniture sliders from Home Depot to the "feet" makes it much easier to reposition it, but not SO easy to move that it moves on its own when travelling.
