Just over a year ago, after getting the news that their firstborn was on the way, Jolene and Ben Kraus knew it was time to get a grown-up house to match their growing family. Having also recently launched their own lighting and interior design company, Park Studio, the busy pair was thrilled to find a two-story, English cottage–style spread big enough to hold the soon-to-be clan of three. The next step was filling the space with babyproof furnishings that wouldn’t compromise their design-forward aesthetic: wool rugs, lacquered tables, and even a leather-clad Eames chair. “We wanted to create a home that was comfortable but with a designer edge,” Jolene explains. “So I made sure to dress timeless pieces with durable—and cleanable—materials.”
