Comfortable Contrast

Living Area


In this classic but contemporary living space, deep blues meet a brilliant white surrounding for a stunning contrast that also lends itself to a soothing and relaxing atmosphere. Two leopard print barrel-back swivel chairs add interest to the room and allow those seated in them to be able to turn and participate in conversations elsewhere. These eloquent accent chairs are married with two opposing light gray sofas to create an area prime for quality time. A blue leather coffee table ottoman grounds the room and is both a functional and comfortable addition. A fireplace surrounded with an interesting penny tile mosaic features receding columns that are topped with a sleek wood mantel, adding to the contrast of the room and providing an element of warmth. The end result is a stylish and cozy gathering place that is graced with a hint of glamour.
