Ottoman & Coffee Table
The family room is a fairly compact 12-by-16-foot space where everyone hangs out and watches television. The custom-made sofa is covered in a wide-wool corduroy. Riker says that the Ellipse Chair from Modernica "adds a fun, poppy element. It's a statement piece that stands on its own." The glass piece on the large ottoman from Doma Home Furnishings slides so you can push it away to put your feet up or bring it close when it's holding food or drinks. The rug is a wall-to-wall carpet that was cut and bound. "We do this a lot since it saves money when you need a very specific size," says Riker.
Look for a chaise with character, such as this tufted one with detailed legs.
Multiple seating areas. Furniture arrangement can be challenging, but this is a great example of how to pull off a room with double seating areas. An open console separates the two seating areas while two sisal rugs clearly define each space. I like the runner and the second rug layered on the sisal rug in the foreground. Layering mismatched furniture and textures help the room to feel more like the pieces were collected over time and less like a store showroom.
