Living Room

Grayson teamed up with Lindsey's grandfather Roger, an architect and furniture designer, to build bookshelves as a weekend project. "It's the heart of the room," says Lindsey. Grayson wired industrial-style lamps across the top of the bookcase, which the couple bought on a pre-baby trip to Paris. Grayson found the sofa at the dump and they saved for a year before having it refinished and re-covered in white leather. They found the armchair and X-base stools at a local thrift shop and had those re-covered.
