And now, for the reveal of our new HGTV HOME custom design!

Our new HGTV HOME Custom Design Family Room!

Isn’t it just beautiful?! This really IS my dream room coming to life! It’s fresh, it’s modern, it’s sophisticated…but most importantly, it’s FAMILY FRIENDLY!

As I mentioned in the previous blog, I was very concerned about maintaining the “warm and inviting” feel in our family room, because it is such a heavily used area in our home. I wanted to go lighter, but I was nervous about light colors with our young children and two dogs. But Bassett Furniture offers more than 800 upholstery and pillow fabric options for even the most discerning mom’s like me!

Let’s take a closer look, and I’ll show you what I mean.

Starting with the new sectional, I selected the Custom Upholstery Right Chaise Sectional, covered in Performance Textured Herribone, in Linen. This fabric not only provided peace of mind because of it’s easy cleaning options, it also provides the durability we need for our party of 5 (and two dogs). The options to make this piece your own are truly endless, including 3 sectional shapes, 10 arm options, 7 leg base choices, and much more. It even comes in a sleeper option if you need the extra space for overnight guests. Let me share a few of my favorite custom selections.

I love the lines on the Scoop Arm Option!
I chose the Metal Leg for a modern touch.
And for extra cozy comfort, I selected the Knife back option, with Microfiber Cushion Comfort.

The texture of this fabric offers wonderful color variations throughout the day. Randi actually asked about where the sun rises and sets in the house so that we could nail this selection…and I believe we did!

For the accent chair, I decided to choose something sleek and sophisticated (and thankfully I did, because it has already become “Mommy’s chair”). I changed up the arm style, leg style and cushion style, because I knew this chair would show from several entry points into the room. So, it needed to make a statement. 🙂

The Slope Arm screams “sophistication!”
Here is a view of the Straight Cushion Style and Boxed Edge Loose Back.

I think the Square Ottoman may actually be my favorite piece of all! I really stepped outside of my comfort zone here with the help of my personal designer, and came up with something magical! Together, we decided on a tufted top, cream leather, tapered legs and a nailhead trim finish…GORGEOUS!

This is the Nailhead Trim in French Brass…and baby Theo taking a little nap on the new rug. 😉
I feel like it invites me to come sit, and have a glass of wine! It’s the softest leather…I wish you could feel it through the photo!
And check out that stunning tufting!

And since we are looking down at everything…can we please talk about that rug?! This beauty is called The Gemini, and let me just say…WOW! If you’ve been following me for a while, then you know I struggle with what I call “rug paralysis.” Similar to selecting paint for a room, I find it incredibly difficult to make up my mind…can I get a witness?! But this is where your Bassett Furniture designer can really help. She was able to help me see the big picture, and boy, was she SPOT ON, or what? Look at the movement on the floor…the colors…it really is the perfect finish.

For the finishing touches, I selected some game changing accents. Starting with the Modern Emilia 24” Axel Side Table. The Bassett MODERN Collection pairs shimmering metallics with dimensional oak for a blend of hipness and casual elegance.

This is the Normandy Grey Finish

Baby Theo has found I new favorite napping spot…can’t say I blame him. That Champagne Brass Finish is FIRE!

And of course I added something a little more…Mellionaire…on the other side! 🙂

This is the Lucy Drink Table…isn’t she lovely??
Showing off those legs… 🙂
This is the Brushed Stainless Steel Base.

Okay, in addition to the ottoman, this may also be tied for favorite piece.

And finally, the accent pillows added just the right amount of sparkle! Make sure you check them out on my YouTube Family Room tour…it was a little easier to capture the sparkle on video.

Custom Accent Pillow for the win!

  1. Considering purchasing the HGTV Bassett CU.2 sectional but saw not so favorable reviews. Subscribed to your YouTube channel after doing a search. A year later how has your sectional held up?
