Blue Boys' Playroom with Durable Furniture and Materials
The goal for this space was to create a room that both adults and children could be comfortable in. With the homeowners' two small boys, the space would need to contain durable fabrics and materials, so designers chose a sectional that could easily be wiped clean with lots of multicolor pillows for comfort. Then, they had a stylish, nylon carpet installed that won't stain and would match the aesthetic of the room, while remaining practical.

The homeowners spent a ton of time in their basement, but before the redesign, it was awkward and drab with no seating.
