One Living Room, Two Ways

02/26/2021

Building a layout that works for your lifestyle starts with the perfect foundational pieces. From expansive sectionals for laid-back living to seating zones that function from formal to conversational, one thing is for certain—a good living room starts from the heart of the space.

Builder and remodeler extraordinaire Brooke Jones of Plank and Pillow knew she wanted to evolve her space into a more relaxed seating arrangement that embraced her family’s laid back lifestyle. But with the handsome wood beams, concrete fireplace, and gorgeous built-ins of her modern farmhouse, the room needed to maintain a designed look that fit her aesthetic. She wanted a piece that functioned with deep, sink-in comfort, yet upheld the stylish look of her open concept, main living space—and The Jones Modular was the perfect fit.

In Brooke's first home tour, her face-to-face Crosby Sofas served the room well for entertaining, game nights, and a semi-formal, yet comfortable seating arrangement. The layout allowed for versatility, multiple conversation zones, and an inviting, beautiful space for entertaining off of her kitchen.

With less formal entertaining and more time spent at home, Brooke realized that an expansive, comfortable sectional would transform the space into a lounge-worthy room for her family to embrace. She chose The Jones Modular in Oyster Performance Linen to give the room inviting, down-filled comfort paired with tailored, design-forward details.

"While we love The Crosby Sofas, we felt like the setup in our living room was a little too formal. We decided to switch to a sectional to give the room a more relaxed feel. What we love about The Jones is that it manages to be relaxed and elegant at the same time. "

"The first thing that caught my eye was the shape and lines of The Jones. It has such a cool modern style, but looks so comfy! I also fell in love with the seam details on the arms. The modularity was also very important for us. It allowed us to configure it exactly to fit the layout we had in mind and work flawlessly with our existing Mercer Chairs."

LIVING WITH THE JONES

LIVING WITH THE JONES

After her Jones Modular was delivered, we asked Brooke how her new living room refresh feels, now that all the pieces came together.

HOW DID YOU STYLE THE ROOM DIFFERENTLY WITH A LARGE SECTIONAL AS OPPOSED TO YOUR PREVIOUS TWO CROSBY SOFAS? 

When we had The Crosby Sofas in our living room, it was a very symmetrical layout with both Mercer Chairs facing the TV and a sofa on each side. When The Jones arrived, I had to take a different approach and focus more on balance. Placing the chairs side-by-side across from the long side of the sofa worked out beautifully.

HOW HAS IT BEEN LIVING WITH THE JONES SO FAR? 

We absolutely love it and couldn't be happier! The down-filled cushions, along with the oversized seating have been perfect for relaxing in our living room.

WHAT ABOUT MAIDEN HOME INITIALLY ATTRACTED YOU? WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO RETURN?

It was the clean and modern style of the sofas that first caught my eye. Then, we were so impressed with the shopping and ordering process! That combined with the quality and comfort of the furniture naturally had us coming back for more.
