Riverside Basement Renovation

This modern, industrial basement renovation includes a conversation sitting area and game room, bar, pool table, large movie viewing area, dart board and large, fully equipped exercise room. The design features stained concrete floors, feature walls and bar fronts of reclaimed pallets and reused painted boards, bar tops and counters of reclaimed pine planks and stripped existing steel columns. Decor includes industrial style furniture from Restoration Hardware, track lighting and leather club chairs of different colors. The client added personal touches of favorite album covers displayed on wall shelves, a multicolored Buzz mascott from Georgia Tech and a unique grid of canvases with colors of all colleges attended by family members painted by the family. Photos are by the architect.

The sofa is Mitchell Gold+Bob Williams. The tables are Restoration Hardware, I think.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

In the movie room, a large sofa provides enough room for the entire family to watch TV together. A rustic bricklayer's coffee table and metal cabinets add industrial style.Martin moved ductwork to the edge of the room and emulated the look on the other side for symmetry. The lowest ceiling height is about 7 feet, 4 inches; the highest is 10 feet. The generous basement ceiling heights were part of the original 1990s house plans. Buzz, the Georgia Tech mascot, is a personal touch. One of the owners is a professor there and bought one of the decorated mascots at an auction.

One way to handle the posts...make them part of a half wall..use the space behind as a walkway.
