The British flag one? That was designed by Vivienne Westwood and was purchased at The Rug Company.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to 10 Ways to Make a Room Bloom
The large-scale floral print centered across the valances and featured on the drapery panels creates an interesting contrast against the Union Jack pillow and zebra print rug. How do you use floral print in your home? Next: See more photos of florals
Becky Harris added this to I Spy: Union Jacks
Artist, blogger and homeowner Lisa Borgnes-Giramonti is a master of mixing prints; I don't know how she pulled off a Union Jack, zebra, florals and even a bird print all at once, but it just works! P.S. I believe this pillow was designed by Vivienne Westwood.
Chaise lounges are great pieces of furniture to use in rooms with several seating areas. Not only do they provide an extra spot to sit, but they lie low to the ground, allowing you to place it in a central area without obstructing visual space. Don’t forget to accompany your seating areas with side tables for cocktails!
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to How to Arrange Your Room for Entertaining
1. A sense of entry. I absolutely love this room. I imagine walking into the house and seeing this view from the front foyer. I love that the furniture isn't blocking me visually, with a sofa facing the fireplace or the too-typical formal layout with two sofas flanking the fireplace. The path leading right down the middle and the two distinct seating areas make this feel more like hotel lobby or restaurant lounge than a living room; fabulous for entertaining.
Shoshana Gosselin added this to Fabulous Furnishings: The Great Chaise
In a long narrow room with a fireplace in the center, re-imagine your furniture placement. Instead of creating a single conversation area directly around the fireplace, create two separate conversation areas that can both enjoy a view of the warm flames. Use a backless chaise to define the separation without blocking the view.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Make Room for a Thanksgiving Crowd
In your family or living room, arrange the furniture so it accommodates groups of people for conversation. If you’ve got the space and enough pieces, create several different seating areas to keep everyone engaged.
1. Create multiple conversation areas. Take a look at your living room, dining room and any other communal space where you think you'll be entertaining. Is your furniture conducive to group conversation? Can guests have smaller, more private conversations but then join the larger discussion again with ease?
