Elegant Warmth


With views on both sides, this living room accommodates large groups of people with multiple seating areas. Contemporary and antique furnishings mix to create a transitional elegance that defines the space. A large sectional and loveseat in textured neutrals offer a comfortable foundation, while a camelback sofa, marble-top coffee table, small tea table, and antique glass table with bamboo legs elevate the look with classic appeal. Accents of decorative glass and oriental décor are balanced with modern lampshades and draperies in geometric patterns. A contemporary painting in shades of cream and gray hangs over the traditional stone fireplace, while a textured cream rug in a subtle diamond pattern creates contrast making the furnishings pop against it. Underneath the sectional and marble table, the fine Oriental, hand-knotted rug pulls out the soft coral in the room, bringing cheer to the design.
