Wilmette Family Room Redesign

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.
