The client needed an update to their family room—and wanted it to feel modern, lounge-y, and stylish. We started with a huge (10x13 foot) deep and low sectional, upholstered in a rich, smooth and luxurious vintage velvet in the most amazing shade of blue/green. We positioned that on top of a large custom-designed hand-knotted silk shag rug from Stark. We added a number of oversized and impactful pieces, including a 7’ mirror flanked by a pair of Barry Dixon sconces, each with mane of horse hair hanging from the glass shade. Between the main windows, we sourced an original watercolor from the cool LA Studio of Zoe Bios Creative, and had it framed in a big lucite box. For the most impact of all, we removed an outdated and bulky stone and wood mantel and shrouded a floor-to-ceiling accent wall in gorgeous Corteccia Quartziit stone, adding a modern linear fireplace.
