Cozy, Modern and Traditional Family Room

Modern lines meet traditional country colors in this cozy family room.

Cushioned Bench

The family room used to be an outdoor porch, and when the homeowners enclosed it, they left a long, awkward step that leads into the rest of the house. Summer decides to use the step for extra seating. She tops the step with 3/4-inch plywood, four-inch foam and fabric that coordinates with the rest of the room decor. She attaches the cushion to the wall with L brackets so that it won't slide around when people sit on it.
