Claire Paquin's clients love to entertain and wanted to maximize seating in their Rye, NY home. By separating the room into two distinct seating groups, the space became much more functional for accommodating groups large and small.
The back patio with a fireplace and pergola is surrounded by dense landscape to give the space an enclosed feeling. This area of the backyard is great in every season. The fireplace adds an element of warmth in the cooler months.
This tropical outdoor seating area features a built-in bench, a rough hewn coffee table and cozy armchairs with matching footrests. The covered patio creates the perfect spot for casual conversation with family and friends.
As seen on HGTV's House Hunters Renovation, homeowners Matthew and Christina Eason, with the help of designer Tracy McCormick, turned the master bedroom suite of their Moorpark, California, home into a spacious retreat with a calm, neutral bay window seating area.
If your outdoor space has integrated bench seating, maximize its use with a collection of bistro tables and mismatched seating surrounding it. The same versatile elements used throughout the area were incorporated here to tie the spaces together visually.
