Impromptu gatherings around a fire pit can sometimes require dragging heavy seating outside when the weather takes a turn for the better. Make it easier to set up your space with lightweight collapsible chairs with clean, sculptural lines.
When space is at a premium, the most cost effective and efficient way to add a spot for every guest is with a pile of down-filled pillows. Anytime you're looking to use pillows as floor cushions, stick with those sized 22 inches to 26 inches. This will ensure proper surface coverage to keep everyone seated comfortably.
When space is at a premium, it's important to choose seating that's practical and easily stored away. Here, stackable plastic chairs were used since they're lightweight and easy to pick up, easy to wipe clean, and can be stacked and stored in a closet in the the off season.
An industrial style lamp brings task lighting above this handsome gray chair to create the perfect spot to catch up on homework, reading, or just relax at the end of the day. A simple round mirror brings light to this corner of the room and plays off the geometric angles and patterns found throughout the space.
If you're using your dining space for creative and work purposes, try to keep things as cheerful and bright as possible to make the spot more enticing. While the walls and wainscoting of the space are light and neutral with white and dove-gray finishes, the colorful accent pieces stand out and add personality.
The table’s vintage faux-leather dining chairs offer a way to sit back, relax and enjoy the beauty of the home. “Almost everything you see to sit in, with the exception of the woven chairs in the great room, is super comfortable,” says designer Brian Patrick Flynn.
