After spending an entire year renovating our newly purchased home, my husband and I found ourselves hitting a visionary roadblock when it came to furnishing one of the most important and multi-functional spaces: the living room.

And while we’re in the throes of award season, who wants to bet that we’ll be seeing one of these utterly stunning gowns on the Oscar’s red carpet?!
