The first room I'm starting with is the Playroom! We're using what should be the dining room - but with a 3 year old, and 5 year old - I don't anticipate much formal dining in the near future!
We don't quite have the spare guest bedroom so instead we are putting a sofa bed into the playroom so that it can be used as both a reading corner and the much needed spare bed for when family come to visit! I think I'd like a cord fabric sofa so we can snuggle up with a good picture book - I like the Rochester from Newman & Bright It comes with a memory foam mattress too so our guests would have a super great nights sleep!
The other thing I quickly noticed was the furniture we had bought for our old "bijou" house looks too small for our new family sized living room so new sofas and armchairs are definitely on the horizon!
With really small children, I've always found leather easiest to clean and care for - seriously! Ours has scrubbed up well after incidences with vomit, wee, food, milkshake and crayons! - I'm not sure if a fabric sofa would be so resilient - so I'd go for a leather sofa again even though I know we are beyond the crayon and food on the furniture stage (I hope) - and I've absolutely fallen for Newman and Bright's The Cloud in Mango Leather and Apple Birch - beautifully Art Deco inspired and a reproduction of the classic designed by the Epstein Brothers - The Cloud is available in a selection of fabrics and leathers.
Find more sofa inspiration on the Newman & Bright website.
