A new den to complete the home / by Lauren Bradshaw

In June 2015, I began work for clients in Orlando, Florida. The owners are such wonderful people, and so helpful with all the extras needed (like photographing, measuring, and assessing light) when doing design from afar. The home is nearly finished, and the final room to take shape is the den. The owners have three kids in major hangout phase--middle and high school--as well as two lively dogs. They need a space that looks good, is durable, and most importantly, comfy. The rest of the house leans more traditional so they wanted a variation for the den. They are fans of Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, so we selected the Cara sofa. (Our MG+BW sofa has lasted us 10 years, and has survived two small boys, so I recommend the company to everyone!) In the back of the room we added a game table and console for serving (non-alcoholic) beverages ;) This was my original mock-up of the furniture layout, along with a photo of the actual space. We're in the purchasing stage now and I can't wait to see the furniture when it comes in.
