Gathering Room From HGTV Dream Home 2011

A celebration of fall foliage colors, the not-so-formal family room handles even the rowdiest crowds with stylish ultrasuede- and polyester-covered furnishings.
Furnishings have to look great, but they have to be relaxed, comfortable and extremely accepting of people who live here.
Interior Designer Linda Woodrum

During the fall, furnishings connect the home to outdoor spaces, says interior designer Linda Woodrum, while during the winter months, the room provides a warm, cozy and welcoming respite from snowy weather. Durability factored heavily into the design of the space.
