Following up on last week’s post on design for a kid’s playroom, here are some fun, funky and vibrant seating options. Modular, upholstered seating works best so you do not have to worry as much about children getting hurt on the furniture while they are playing. It’s nice to have accent colors be on the accessories or toys, rather than the walls, especially if they are the ever popular pink or baby blue, so that you do not get too tired of looking at it. To make it more fun you can mix and match patterns, textures and colors.
It’s good to start with the base colors, i.e. neutral grays or earthy colors, and decide which accent colors you would like to incorporate. The color options and patterns for kid’s furniture can be overwhelming. Toys can always be stored and accessories changed, whereas repainting a kid’s playroom is more of a chore. With the right design it is possible to have the playroom fit into the overall style of the home or apartment, so that is not just a door you shut when guests come over! These are the three options we’re considering for a playroom where we have an earth toned vintage moroccan rug. In the first photo below the tufted, rounded shape of the sectionals is what makes this a fun choice for a playroom. In the second image the flexibility of being able to move the seating around and re-arranging the color combinations and patterns create a youthful look. The third image is a sectional from Lignet Roset, the Confluence by Pierre Paulin.
