We work with couples and families that love to entertain. Living in Michigan, beautiful lake homes that bring people together are a special part of our culture. The sandy beaches, ocean-like lake views, and walks though breathtaking nature is perfect day time activities. In the afternoon and evenings, everyone gathers for an afternoon nap, to watch a game on TV or play cards. Whether you are at the lake or in town, comfort is king but style is never forgotten!
START WITH A FLOOR PLAN
The first step in designing a room is understanding the architecture and creating a scaled floor plan. Furnishings can be chosen to fit the style and proportions of the room, but every piece is sized for appropriateness and comfort. This gives us the bones of our room and the starting point for layering in everything else!
USE AN EXTRA LONG SOFA
To maximize seating, whether it be in the summer or during the holiday’s opt for an extra log sofa that truly fits your space. Function and comfort!
ADD MORE OTTOMANS
We love ottomans! The more the merrier! Here we have two small ottomans for the lounge chairs and one extra long ottoman for the sofa. These can be easily moved around the room for additional seating, or the extra long ottoman can be pulled up to the sofa for cozy movie watching.
INCLUDE LOUNGE CHAIRS
Appropriately scaled lounge chairs can be tricky. They are often very deep and take up valuable floor space in a room. Maximizing seating means adding chairs that are not only comfortable but also fit into the floor plan well.
MAKE ROOM FOR EXTRA SEATING
Everyone has events with more people than typical, at least a couple times a year. Leave a little breathing space in your room for a few dining chairs to be brought in. Situated next to a built-in or fireplace they will feel right at home!
Relax, put your feet up, and enjoy a home that is comfortable, inviting, and personable! Have other ideas for maximizing seating? Drop us a note below!
