My Rowe Design by Shannon

Shannon’s creativity was sparked by the variety of Rowe seating options and case pieces in her My Rowe Design space, from a comfy swivel and spacious ottoman to stylish shelves and marble-topped tables. “I tend to be inspired first by frame styles,” says Shannon, “then select the fabric and color palette to pull it all together.” A palette of subtle, earthy tones was the perfect complement to this multifunctional family living space. “My favorite design element of My Rowe Design space,” the designer adds, “[it] should be no surprise, is the colors and the different textures I incorporated in the overall space.”

“I wanted my space to feel like a happy, inviting and livable space for a family wanting to retreat to at the end of a day.”

“I imagine my space being enjoyed by a family who is on the go with life’s busy schedule,” says Shannon, whose goal was to create a dual purpose room with plenty of usable space for both relaxing and entertaining. Pairing our flared base Journey table with a set of curved Neoma benches creates a cozy nook perfect for kids to do homework, play a board game or even tackle a puzzle. The designer also imagined this room serving as a versatile space for entertaining groups of people. Creating multiple conversation areas with plenty of extra seating options allows this room to accommodate everything from small gatherings to large family get‑togethers.

“I would describe my design style as ‘livable design.’ I love mixing genres of styles to create a timeless look for my clients.”
