What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Perfectly Composed Small Rooms
You can keep a small room from feeling claustrauphobic by opening it up to another room. In this case, it's the kitchen. Also, the built in shelves allow for a lot of storage and draw the eye up. Finally, white walls and ceilings give a more open feeling to the room.
This coffee table is like an anchor in the room. Everything else is styled around it. The mix of metal and wood makes it very versatile.
Here's another room that has a lot of stuff but stays modern because of its materials and clean lines.
Becky Harris added this to Your Colors: Reconsider Princely Purple
This room has moved past the usual Eames-ish primary color palette and added a healthy dose of purple. Bravo!
Becky Harris added this to Modern Icons: Jens Risom Chairs
One of Risom's most popular designs is what is known today as The Risom Lounge Chair. He designed it in 1941, and its ingenuity was born out of a necessity: a scarcity of the usual furniture-making materials during World War II. Well, perhaps I should say a surplus of some materials; the woven straps on the original chair were surplus parachute straps. The base was crafted of birch wood. Today the straps are made of heavy-duty cotton, not up-cycled parachute straps. You can probably find the last of those in the memories of your 1980s elementary school gym class. Let's Play with the Parachute Day sure beat the heck out of Dodgeball Day, didn't it?
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Primary Colors
I love the small touches of primary colors in this room, all anchored by the blue chair. The look is striking and subtle.
