Haskell Matheny, ASID, of Haskell Interiors designed this “funky and fun” vintage lounge with a distinct 1960s vibe. The homeowners didn’t want a formal living room, but instead a room to kick back in and enjoy a pre-dinner drink. Matheny used a controlled palette of color anchored in a bold peacock blue on three walls. Blue drapes were designed to blend into the wall to emphasize arched windows along one wall. Four 1930s theater-style chairs facing each other are covered in mohair and trimmed in blue vinyl welt piping, which accentuates their unique shape. Round mother-of-pearl pedestal tables between the chairs are the perfect place for cocktail glasses. The gold framed coffee table has a mirror top and bottom shelving with square shaped mirrors on the sides as accents. The silver diamond-patterned wallpaper on the end wall highlights a vintage sixties Macassar ebony cabinet patterned like parquet floors. Tall, slender gold lamps placed on either side of a tray with bar accessories frame a gold starburst mirror. Corner chairs flanking the cabinet are covered in a silver metallic thread fabric, adding another layer of refracted light that plays off the adjacent wall of windows and the silver painted ceiling.
