October 1, 2015 - table lamp
Sara and Russell Bailey recently renovated a 16-by-20-foot groundwork of their 1940s home in Arlington. They wish to use a room as a hangout area for their teenage boys, though they also need to leave space for a domestic Murphy bed to overlay down, since a space will offer as a guest bedroom as well.
Designer Jennifer Schweikert adds a sleeper lounge and a gentle chair on casters to accommodate a room’s twin purposes.
