Room Label
Basement Family Room
I want this room to feel more masculine/feminine/neutral
Neutral
What type of sunlight does this room receive?
Very little sunlight
What do you currently dislike about the room?
Everything. Needs to be a functional second family room that we would not be embarassed to use as entertaining space. It is currently a catch all room for toys, and all furniture is “leftovers” from when we moved into the house.
What pieces of existing furniture, lighting, art or accessories do you want to keep in the design?
None. Consider it an empty room. Needs to have a TV roughly in the same place, but attached to the wall, also needs to have a sofa that doubles as a pull out bed. There is a full bathroom in the basement, and this space needs to be usable as a guest room in a pinch.
Are you open to changing your wall colors?
Yes
Do you have a preference for either paint or wall covering, or are you open to both?
Paint
Are you open to changing your floor covering?
Yes
Which type of flooring do you prefer?
Carpet

Living Room:
Since your room receives little sunlight, an off-white paint color will make the room feel larger and brighter.

For your main color, we chose to use white/off-white as it offers a fresh, clean, feel to the space. White and off-white colors are often a favorite for walls because they are light, neutral, and match most color schemes. They are known to make rooms feel more airy and spacious.

Use an eggshell finish paint which has a very light touch of shine (similar texture to an eggshell as implied by its name). This finish is very often used for walls and is more durable and easier to clean than matte finish

Askance Floor Lamp
The designers of Askance seemed unphased by the sentiment that you don’t design and name a product after something uncomfortable. But the aversion principle that the design conveys was only in order to emphasize a light-filled path ahead. Constructed of powder coated metal, an adjustable shade and tripod footing, keep your distance from opposing viewpoints and people, while embracing the future in a lamp which only inspires possibilities. 19.5"L x 29.5"W x 63"H
