Family First


It's the heart of the home; the place where casual dining meets entertainment and everything in between. For some of you, the family room is the most used room in the house which is something you want to keep in mind when you are shopping for furniture to fill the space.

Area Rug || We always say it’s best to design from the bottom up. Starting with the area rug will help you develop a color palette for the room while providing a cozy treat for your feet.

Seating || L-shaped and U-shaped configurations promote conversation and provide a clear view of the television. Oversized sectionals will create the L-shape and sometimes includes reclining seats and/or a chaise lounge all in one piece! Another option is to mix and match a sofa (maybe a sleeper if you don’t have a guest room) with a chaise lounge, accent chairs, or a recliner to create a little dimension in the room. Due to the amount of traffic this room will see, aim for high performance fabrics like Sunbrella or Microfiber as they are both stain and fade resistant. Or if leather is more your style, seek out the pieces with a lacquer finish as they will be the most durable leather when maintained properly.

Storage || Beauty can meet function with your media storage. Wall units create a focal point while hiding all of those unsightly wires and consoles. Personalize it by adding your favorite books, picture frames, or nostalgic knick-knacks.

Tables || The family room table as evolved over the years, with the oversized ottoman topped with a tray being the latest trend. The ottoman is great because when not being used as a place to rest your drink, it can serve as a place to rest your feet. Some even have hidden storage!
