For the big family

Is football a family affair? Invite your friends, family, and their friends and family to watch the big game at your place. An extra-large sectional, coffee table, and entertainment area is ideal for large gatherings - lots of space for standing, sitting, and cheering.

For the special-occasions-only fan

Not big on TV but want to enjoy game day? Install a small contemporary barn door that can slide over the TV while it's not in use. Simply push the doors to the side when you're ready to root for your favorite team.

For the great outdoors enthusiast

If weather permits, why not watch the game outside? Create a serene scene perfect for game day complete with snacks, and plenty of seating for guests to cozy up and cheer all afternoon.
