Family Room Update {with our new Pottery Barn Sectional}

I mentioned a few months ago that we were getting some new furniture for our family room.  We purchased this sectional from the Pottery Barn in stone everyday suede.

Here are a few pictures BEFORE the sectional arrived…

Wall decor had to be moved.  And new lamps purchased to work with the new arrangement.

Let’s take a look at the room now!


The sectional fills the space in this room nicely! And we finally all have space to stretch out!

I’m still working on pillows for the room.  I’ll be sure to share pics when I get them figured out!

It’s safe to say that we are enjoying our new couch!  We waited a long time to make this purchase. And we’re so glad we finally did!

Come back in a few days for a peek at some of our Christmas decor!

  1. Looks great, Jen!

  2. Are the floor lamps pottery barn as well? We’re looking for the same for our massive sectional and a lot of them seem to be too short.

    • Hi Julie! The lamps are from Target! I think they were $60 or $70 each. Very reasonable price. If you can’t find them in your local store, try online!

  3. Hi Ilove your family room! God bless you we have been looking at sectionals at pottery barn and seriously considering the stone everyday suede . So im curious any issues with stains so far?? I did a bunch of stain testing on the sample swatch everything came out great but worried I dont want to have to wash my cushion covers weekly or even monthly?? Are you noticing things showing up on it easier?

    Your opinion would really help !!! Thanks a bunch :)

    • Hi Cyndi!! I’m really happy with the material so far. Any marks that I’ve come across have wiped off really easy. Used a baby wipe one time to get something green (grass stain?) off and it came right off. My only complaint is that when something small (bark/threads) get on the couch, you can’t just whisk them away with your hand. You have to pick them off/out of the knap of the material. My kids seem to bring home so much bark on their clothes from school and it somehow ends up on the couch. (I joke that my sons seems to shed bark from his skin). So that’s been my biggest complaint, But other than that, I’m completely happy with the couch. Let me know if you have any other questions!!

  4. Thanks Jen! We have the same issue with bark or pine needles thanks to our yorkie. Thanks also for mentioning a grass stain/baby wipes . I have 3 lil boys and while we are just about out of the sippy cup drips and food on couch problems, grass stains are a perfect example of the rare mark that could pop up.

    I have one final question if you dont mind :). Did you ever consider the performance tweed fabric? Wondering if so why you chose the everyday suede over the performance tweed? Im having a hard time finding any personel reviews about it. It seems silly to spend an extra $600 for something Im not sure will wear as well over time.

    Thanks again :)

    • I believe PB just introduced the performance tweed. At least I wasn’t aware of it at the time we purchased our couch. Otherwise I would have absolutely considered it. I just had a client purchase the performance tweed on two chairs and I can’t wait to see them in person! It looks like a great fabric!

  5. Which sectional is this? I too, had the issue with pollen and bark from my boys’ clothes and socks sticking to the everyday suede. So I traded the sofa out for an everyday velvet and then – the sofa broke! So now I have a merchandise credit and am thinking to buy the comfort square in the performance tweed. I would love to hear how your client likes the fabric!!

    • This is the PB Square (the regular one, not the comfort). And it’s in Everyday Suede. I wish I’d done the performance tweed, but it wasn’t available at the time of purchase. So far, we’re happy with the suede, other than things getting stuck in the knap of the fabric. It cleans up really nicely, thank goodness!
