If you read about our casita build, you know this space is hard working and multipurpose. That calls for hard-working, multipurpose furnishings! I walked a fine line between wanting durable products and wanting inexpensive products. (I don’t want my kids to destroy the furniture, but if (or when?) they do, I don’t want to freak out over the price of what is ruined!) It was a tricky ask, because generally speaking, you get what you pay for in terms of durability.
This casita also serves as our pool house, and so I chose indoor/outdoor products wherever I could, figuring they would stand up to the wet and sunscreen-slathered kids (and dog) that pretty get much have free reign in here. In the end, I mixed some budget-friendly pieces with a splurge (the sofa) and some non-precious antiques that were ready to move out of the main house. We’re happy with the mix! It’s been about six months, and so far everything is holding up to my brood!
