The fabulous architecture and interior designs of Giannetti Home truly speak for themselves. But if you need a little more clarification, we think this sums it up nicely: “We believe in homes with emotion, the power of natural light, in a modern sense of space, in a simple palette of materials and the power of antiques to convey history, that classical proportions hold the key to beauty and that a little romance is a good thing.” Now that’s in good taste!
Geoff Chick Design An all-important part of any room — beyond the aesthetics, of course — is how comfortable it is.
Caitlin Wilson We love a gorgeous interior design scheme as much as the next girls, but, sometimes, it’s all about the comfort.
Mabley Handler Design For our Beaufort house, we’re remodeling the third floor attic (which we have zero pictures of, by the way) that leads to the widow’s walk to be one of those great, all-purpose rooms.
Mainly, it will be a playroom for Will, a place to have friends over when he’s older, and a spot for people to congregate at parties when that big game is on. (Because that always happens, doesn’t it? And who wants to hear the TV droning in the background??)
So, when it comes to comfort, the couch might be king, but the chaise is queen.

Will and Dad vote for some sort of L or U-shaped chaise/couch configuration.
We see the merit in it for sure. And we did say that room was all about comfort…
Molly Frey Design
BUT… Though the all-in-one can be fun, but we’re always fans of the chaise/sofa combo.
Jessica Helgerson Design
It feels less crowded to us and makes pathways seem more open.
Sarah Richarson Design
Plus, maybe it’s the only child in me, but I like to have my personal space. I think that explains my penchant for solo chaises. Mom is one of four and could cram on a couch with fifteen people, so I don’t know why she likes them so much…
Anyway, since it isn’t necessarily a psychology exam so much as an interior design challenge, what’s your feeling on the attached or detached chaise situation?
Nate Berkus Studio
One of the best parts of the chaise is that chic little side table that nestles in so sweetly beside it.
Lee F. Mindel Architect
Obviously this is completely too formal for a playroom, but isn’t this room stunning? What’s better than a touch of gold? Clear vote for the chaise… Please chime in, we need opinions! We hope you all have an amazing day!
