We continue our Before and After series with the Family Room as part of the renovation project in Weston, MA. Our client wanted a room that was casual and comfortable with ample seating. To achieve that Duffy Design Group designed a custom sectional , coffee table with rolling ottoman and side table. The sectional is upholstered in S.Harris FlannelSuede. This family has young children so it was important to select durable fabrics. The rolling ottoman is upholstered in Spinneybeck leather. The coffee and end table are fabricated with cerused brown oak. The end result is a room that this family can all enjoy for years to come!
As promised, Duffy Design Group has more before and after photos to show you of the renovation project in Weston, MA. The before photo shows an exposed brick wall with a built in fireplace and recessed cabinet. In the after photo, we painted the brick and added an accent color in recessed center of the wall. We updated the fireplace, removed the cabinet and created a recessed display shelf with lighting. We designed and installed a built in buffet and wall shelves for storage. To finish off the space, we designed and fabricated a custom table, paired it with the "Profile" chairs and a drum pendant by Neidhardt. We have more pictures of this project to post, stay tuned!
At Duffy Design Group, it's always exciting and rewarding to see our designs come to life. As we looked through file photos of this renovation project, we were reminded of where we started and decided this called for a "before and after" post! Stay tuned for more before and after photos of this project and many more!
