I am interested in ideas for several pieces to finish off the furnishing of my Family Room. We are an active family with two young children and want to create a peaceful, tidy yet up to date Family room.
I have two 91"W sofas and a 42" square leather ottoman. I have a brown/gunmetal reading club chair on order for one corner of my FR bumpout. The sofa and ottoman have espresso stained legs. The room is open to the kitchen, which has cherry cabinets. Walls are BM Van Cortland Blue, white trim and a golden oak floor.
2. Small table for the 6 ft windowed bump out. I wanted a table to occupy the bump out to allow for a snack, puzzle, homework table so that the kitchen table is not always occupied when it is meal time. I was considering a 40" round, such as offered by the Canadel line. I "built" one online: TAB040001414ASIDR/BAS04000NA14SI (either antiqued or matte).
I would also like two or three chairs for this table: a transitional upholstered chair would be nice, finished in a material that will resist stains (little kid hands abound!)
3. Console table to sit behind the far sofa. The sofa is 91" W and 33.5"H. I am a bit lost here: I would like some storage in a console table, but would consider a flat table. I was thinking of a console 16-18"D and at least 54" W. I need assistance in the proper height: I don't want it sticking up well above the sofa, nor do I want it to "disappear" if it is too short.
4. Upholstered ottoman squares in front of the fireplace for additional seating and accent. I love the quatrefoil pattern on my kitchen chairs, so perhaps something to play off that?
Finally, I need to figure out what material these items should be: if all wood, I would prefer that the stain compliments one another rather than matching.
If you can help me with any of these things, please let me know!!
I am attaching a few photos for your reference: the table and chairs will sit where the orange accent chair currently resides. The console will go behind the sofa closest to the windows. The media console will sit where the (now removed) old armoire sat.
