Focus On Comfort

The family room is where guests spend most of their time, in part due to its prime location next to the kitchen. “It’s only natural that when there’s cooking going on, this is where everyone gathers,” Howard says. “But it’s also a good place to nap or read the paper. sectionals really lend themselves to relaxation.”

Get the Look: The sectional sofa is from Hickory Chair. The side table is by Dransfield & Ross.
