The homeowners of this house wanted to maintain the open feeling of their space, but add a little more distinction between the different zones of the first floor. By adding a structural half wall with custom shelving, we combined design and function. A stone fireplace flanked by arched windows is the main focal point of the room, while a comfortable gray sectional - piled high with pillows and throws - offers plenty of seating to gather around the TV custom fit into the shelving of the half wall. A bar opposite the fireplace is perfect for entertaining. Photo by Chris Amaral.

2. Sectionals are cozy for TV watchingThere’s nothing like snuggling up under a blanket on a big, squashy sectional for comfort. Just be sure to aim the TV toward the centre of the sectional so everyone seated has a decent view.Browse through images of sectionals

10.20.21 HR I love the comfy and cozy feel of this room. What do you like or hate about it? I like the cozy feel but other than that I am not much of a fan of this room, I do not like the fireplace stone or the dividing of the room or the yellow paint.
