Keep reading to see how Natalie worked with our furniture experts to find just the right piece, loaded with features to keep up with her busy, multi-generational family.

The Best Seat in the House

Q&A with @pegcitylovely

What made you decide to purchase a new sectional?

Our old sectional was almost 10 years old and, being white leather, was starting to show a lot of wear and tear. We knew we wanted to get a similar style, though, because it is functional for our family.

Could you tell us about the process of choosing your new sectional?

I made an appointment at the Dufresne location on Ellice and met with a sales professional who gave me their undivided attention in finding all the similar styles of sectionals. The experience of shopping by appointment was simple, informative, and customer-centric.

Buying such a major piece of furniture can be a daunting task. Do you have any tips to share?

Have a discussion with your spouse about what you both want BEFORE going to the store! Trust me, this will save you a lot of time. It’s also helpful to bring pictures of your existing setup or examples of the styles you’re looking for to your appointment. Finally, give yourself time to look at everything and sit on the pieces that catch your eye, then go back at least once to take a second look.

What features were you looking for and which sectional did you choose?

We were looking for an L shaped sectional with a chaise, headrests, and comfortable seating for the whole family. The one that checked all the boxes for us was the Keoni.

What do you love about the Keoni and how does it reflect your personal style?

We love its versatility and the colour is neutral yet modern. It really brings a different vibe to our great room space. I’m all about comfy casual with a hint of flava, and the Keoni has just that.

Now that you have been using it for a few weeks, what is your favourite feature?

The whole family fights over the electronic recliner—it is literally the best seat in the house!

As a busy mom (and now grandmother—congrats!), how do you strike a balance between kid-friendly and stylish when it comes to your home?

Thanks! I think the Keoni is the perfect match for this because the fabric we chose is easily cleaned with a cloth—no need to “season” it, etc. The fabric is highly durable for our growing brood of beautiful grandbabies.

Besides new furniture, did you (or will you) make any other changes to the room?

We will be looking at a coffee table and end tables, as well as lamps, to complement the Keoni. We’re also thinking about adding some art to our great room.

Before you go, do you have any advice for creating a cozy family-friendly space?

COMFORT is KEY. Our great room isn’t for show—it’s for LIVING. It’s where we create awesome memories with just our family, but it can easily transform to a space where we can entertain our friends, too. If you have comfortable, functional furniture and you fill the space with love, it’ll feel cozy.

Shop the Look

To give her space a comfy casual feel (with just a hint of “flava”), Natalie chose the Keoni power sectional in a beautiful shade of Dillon. This gorgeous piece has a distinctive, modern shape and unique comfort options that make it perfect for relaxing with the family or entertaining friends. Fully customizable, it can be built-to-order to suit your space and taste.

Here are just a few of Keoni’s features:

Power reclining seating: There’s nothing like putting your feet up to relax (or snuggle with the grandbabies) at the end of the day. With simple controls, the Keoni makes relaxing effortless.

Power headrests: Sit back and find the perfect position, no matter your height. The power headrest activates seamlessly with the recline function.

USB charging: You don’t have to be a social media expert like Natalie to appreciate the built-in USB ports. Keep your devices charged and close at hand while you relax.

Custom fabric choices: Express yourself with a wide selection of fabrics, including easy care options like Natalie’s, in a range of earthy neutrals and rich, warm colours. Keoni is perfectly on-trend with stylish top-stitching to complement your fabric choice.

Lasting comfort: Keoni is expertly crafted in Canada with a durable wood frame featuring pinned joins reinforced with glue. Sitting atop a long-lasting suspension system, all cushions feature high-quality memory foam with a gel-infused memory topper for years of comfort.

Custom configuration: There’s room for everyone. With the help of your sales professional, you can create the Keoni to perfectly fit your space and your family’s seating needs. Choose from a left- or right-facing configuration with one or more power recliners and/or chaise seating.
