How comfortable are they considering they are very low to the ground?

The Couture Haus Interior Design
LInda, The PK22 Easy Chair looks very low, but it is not extremely low: the seat height is 13.8" compared to 18" , which is the standard seat height. Given the design, this chair is actually a comfortable chair that has the added benefit of working beautifully in small spaces as it takes very little visual space. Hope this helps!

BRG Design+Build
Since there are no seams, i would guess Hardipanel with a smooth plaster finish.

I agree with BRG. This is something similar to what I am doing now. CBB with a modified sealer applied with fiber on the entire wall as a bonding agent for plaster. Then plaster. I just did this on my wall and a faux paint will make it look like concrete. I wonder how the corners were done. Perhaps a metal "reveal" J type bead that sits deep enough where it is not even noticed?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Floor-to-ceiling wood panels with simple shelves and cabinets suit this mid-century modern living room.
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to Styling With Great Little Stools and Hassocks
Two or three stools in front of a couch can easily take the place of a coffee table. The strong lines of these wood stools fit with the minimalist look of the fireplace and furniture.
This seating area is not very deep and needs something low and light. The PK22s are the perfect size and shape, and they add just the right amount of leather to the material palette.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Mini Guide to Minimalism
In this space, two small coffee tables and minimalist chairs round out this seating area. You can improve functionality while still keeping the look with small, clean-lined side tables near the chairs to provide a spot for drinks.

My favorite is Inalco out of Spain. I have their Foster and Magma, love them both. You can contact Chaim at Lazer Marble about this line of tile. Really not too expensive, even if you figure in shipping. Another sources is They are the maker of the 3' x 10' tiles. They have some in stock in Ohio even. I think they have a US location in the south, Atlanta maybe? Also:,, Or google Large format porcelain tile italy spain.
