A long storage table turns this awkward wall into a functional space to store books, wine bottles and tabletop accessories. A bar stool fits under the unit to create a makeshift desk, and colorful art and a wooden sculpture hang above the table to add interest to the mostly neutral space.
Designer Claire Paquin created a space in the basement of her client's home that could function for young children, as well as space for adults.

A custom-made table can expand and retract as needed to reveal various board games and has four stools tucked underneath, just waiting for family and friends to use during game night, as seen on Cousins Undercover.
This space is all about creating an imaginative, fun and plush space for the kids to dream. The art room by extension was all about the same interactive touch and feel aspect. Creating a space for the kids to create was the base of the vision.

The console table in the foyer welcomes guests with stylish storage and a unique display of art and candles. Designers added textured wallpaper and a soft rug to complete the design and give the small space a bit of dimension.
