For me, 2013 is not only the year of a better, healthier body. It is also the year of a spaces that invoke peace, tranquility and warmth, aka my very own Mom cave. I’ve decided to team up with La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries to get this thing done. It is something that I have thought about for a very long time but has been continually added to the bottom of the priority list for various reasons. In the past, like with the addition we completed a few years ago, visualization is key for me. I need to be able to see the space finished. I need lists, pictures and plans to make those dreams a reality. I am actually sort of embarrassed to show you a picture of how the space looks right now. There’s no furniture, it’s cluttered and there’s various things strewn about looking for a home. This room is definitely not a peaceful place to relax.
This room has really had no purpose except catch-all since we moved here 10+ years ago. Since it is where people enter the house almost all the time I would really like to make a good first impression on guests that arrive. Additionally, I would like my family to enter and leave in an inviting, organized and well defined space. Just like setting a tone for our whole home instead of the way it looks and feels now.
My relationship with La-Z-boy began years and years ago. My husband requires his own space too. He has had this recliner for over 5 years. It’s durable fabric has lasted through 2 kids, 2 dogs, and various other furry pets. There are no rips, no tears and no stains in the fabric. It really looks almost the same as the day we bought it. With all that our furniture goes through on a daily basis, it is pretty amazing to me that it lasted this long. We have gone through other pieces of furniture that didn’t even last a whole year. He loves kicking back in this comfy chair and now I’m trusting La-Z-Boy for my own sweet spot.
I decided on La-Z-Boy for other reasons as well. They have been in business for 85 years. Any company that can stay in business for that long is surely doing something right. This gives me assurance that should I have a warranty issue that they will be there to fulfill my needs. Also they provide a full range of products besides recliners, sofas, sectionals, loveseats. It is really one stop shopping for pulling together an entire room. Lastly, with more than 900 covers (in fabric and leather) to coordinate with their more than 250 different frames there is surely something to fit every need and space. I LOVE having choices!
I knew I wanted a pop of color, the durability you expect with La-Z-boy and enough seating to have friends over for coffee or an extra space to offer family to relax during family gatherings. Mostly, I wanted a space where I can do some work comfortably and enjoy some quiet time too. I visited the Room Inspirations tab on their online store and began to browse the selections. I found the perfect set-up for my Mom Cave. With its bright splash of green paint and lamps along with the Graystone upholstery (gray is the hottest design trend right now by the way) I had found my vision.
I began by first choosing the Delaney sofa because that is the one piece that I will use the most. It is large enough for a nice sunday afternoon nap and it’s timeless color is just perfect for updating should I feel the need. See in the picture below that changing up the accessories can bring a whole new look to the same foundation piece. I am looking forward to doing this as new trends are introduced.
My other favorite piece is the Jordan Ottoman in Licorice leather. It’s a super piece that will serve many functions. I can see myself using it to prop up my feet, for a place to surround my self with gadgets or to indulge in some delicious snacks. I picked it over a traditional table because I wanted a piece that was made for sitting as well as a functional centerpiece.
