As fall transitions to winter, "cozy" is a feeling we seek out more. The textiles in our home, like bedding and throw blankets, add texture, design, character and warmth (visually and literally). It's easy to overlook the significance of these linens, unless you've been introduced to Area Home.
Their products are known for their original modern designs that have enduring beauty and comfort and are made of natural fibers. Inspired by Scandinavian, every product is designed to be able to coordinate with any other piece in their collection.
There are many more products than shown on our website but we have samples of all of their textiles for you to touch and feel for yourself in our showroom. Additionally, we have 100% cotton blankets covering our Savvy Rest Mattresses and a few throw blankets on hand. Our customers come back telling us how happy they are with their new linens and rave about how well they hold up.

We recently met with Gillian and her husband John (our 2016 Room Makeover Giveaway Winners) to reveal our design plan! We showed them two different ways of using the same sofa, accent chairs and media console. What differentiates the two palettes is the rug, ottoman and upholstery selections.
THE CLASSIC MOD PALETTE
Light, warm + handsome
THE STORMY MOD PALETTE
Dark, moody + playful
THE CORE FURNISHINGS
As you can see from the floorplans, we changed things around! A sofa and pair of chairs replace their sofa chaise and sentimental chair (which we recommended they move to another space). We pivoted the furnishings 90 degrees counter clockwise. The seating arrangement focuses on a new large media console and central ottoman/coffee table. The sofa, chairs and media console set the aesthetic tone for the room because of their scale. We picked these pieces because of how they compliment Gillian and John's Mid Century Modern home + design taste:
ADDITIONAL FURNITURE + GALLERY WALL
To create a welcoming and functional landing zone in their entryway, we suggested a gallery wall of their existing artwork with a new console table, table lamp and pair of stools beneath it. We understood why they're fond of the vertical blinds and suggested they simply update them with a more modern design.
CONSOLE METAL FINISH
CONSOLE WOOD FINISH
DARK PALETTE OTTOMAN FABRIC
LIGHT PALETTE OTTOMAN FABRIC
After our presentation, Gillian shared in an email that “it was great coming in and seeing the design you put together for our front room! There are a lot of good options to think about, and how they work with our lifestyle”. We’ll be hearing from them soon about which direction they want to go and will update you on their final selections!

Meet Gillian, and her adorable pup. She and her husband won our Room Makeover Giveaway and we visited their home this week to measure, take photos and see what we’re working with! In our discussions, we learned what’s working, what isn’t and what their dream vision is for their entry/living room space.
Here are some of the things we learned from our visit!
The EWF Modern 2016 Room Makeover Giveaway Winner is Gillian S.
In response to why she wanted a room makeover from EWF Modern, Gillian explained that she wasn’t sure what to do in her small space to make it feel elegant and modern. Her top priorities are comfort, storage, and durable selections (for her pup).
We are already coming up with ideas for how to address her concerns and can’t wait to visit her home in the next few weeks. You're coming along with us on this journey too, so check back on our blog to watch this makeover unfold!
