Family Room Update

Our family room is in need of an update. Our couches are about 10 years old. And they show it.  Life with two kids equals spilled chocolate milk and dirty shoes have left their mark on the fabric.

We currently have the PB Basic couch and chair from Pottery Barn.  Since they’ve been great pieces of furniture, we decided to begin our search at Pottery Barn for our next couch as well.

We went with the PB Square sectional.  Initially, we considered this size…

But after further discussion, we  chose  something bigger.

The kids aren’t getting any smaller. And I’ll be honest, when the kids are watching a movie, I want a place to stretch out too!!

I chose the stone colored fabric to keep the room light and fresh feeling.  Knowing that we will be rough on the couches, we went with everyday suede.  Have you had any luck with everyday suede?

Dan’s request for the room was rocking chair.  I immediately started searching for a swivel glider, because I prefer the look of an upholstered chair than a standard rocking chair.  Fortunately, swivel gliders are becoming easier to find these days.

 We selected the hathaway swivel glider from Crate and Barrell.

Did you know that Crate and Barrel offers custom upholstery?  If you visit one of their stores, they have a fabric section that  isn’t shown online.   And Crate and Barrel  is having a custom upholstery sale right now, so we were able to get the chair for 25% off!

Here is the couch and chair fabrics next to each other.

And while I’m not 100% certain of pillow fabrics that will be used in the room, here are a few samples of combinations I was playing with the other day.

FABRICS AT HOME IN THE NORTHWEST

I’m really drawn to oranges and browns (even when it’s not fall).  Though I actually think this combination above could look nice year round.

Now we just get to wait about 10 weeks for the furniture to arrive!
