Family Room Fun(ction)

Maximum seating = maximum fun

This family of four in Wilmette asked us to refresh their very traditional family room and make the somewhat tricky area more functional. On their wish list – display space for family photos and objets d’art, a place of honor for their treasured heirloom bench and maximum seating for guests. Abracadabra – we were able to provide it all for this 6-year-old home on the North Shore. Among our favorite pieces – and theirs – the pair of angled love seats and the custom built-in cabinetry, cleverly designed to work in a tight corner and finished in two colors that complement the fireplace.
