5 Furniture Designs for Cozy Family Dens


Super-comfortable sofas, armchairs and other modern family room furniture ideal for Saturday night Netflix binges


30-Compact H by Stûv
A traditional hearth gets a modern update with this sleek wood-burning stove. The cast-iron unit’s three different settings allow you to easily rotate between functions. A fully-closed setup maximizes performance while the glass screen–only option adds ambiance. The open mode lets you enjoy that authentic wood smell and even toast marshmallows. From $6850, at Igne Ferro


Table and Chair by Little Nest
While this set’s ready for pint-sized Picassos and their crayons by day, its mod style keeps it sophisticated enough to act as a coffee table by night. Made of American oak coated with non-toxic paint. $470, at Advice from a Caterpillar


Brick 68 by Gervasoni
Designed by Italy’s Paola Navone, this walnut storage unit features three rounded, textile-clad doors – meaning softer corners for tots playing unsanctioned games of tag when you aren’t looking. From $7230, at RADform


Mix Modular by Gus Modern
French seams and bolster pillows make this modular sofa system look as sophisticated as it does comfortable. Five cushy components, each available in a variety of fabrics, can be arranged in endless configurations. The pictured formation is perfect for movie nights with the whole gang. $6405, at Stylegarage


Era by Normann Copenhagen
Perfect for storytime, this high-backed seat has a moulded foam shell and cushion, while curved chrome legs help rock tired babes to sleep. Available in a variety of colours and fabrics, including leather. From $3248, at Urban Mode
