Darryl Carter had the sofas custom made. He recently opened his own boutique in Washington, DC that offers custom upholstered pieces so you could probably get more information there.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Carter is a big fan of light neutral shades, which put an emphasis on textures and unique objects. "When carefully executed, white helps create a logic and continuity that will relate rooms seamlessly to one another," he says. "The calm palette reinforces the experience and a cohesive flow throughout the house, and against this backdrop, people and life take center stage."Carter's Nuts and Bolts of Good DesignOne of the most useful parts of the book is a cheat sheet at the end of each chapter — lists of issues to consider when planning each space and suggestions.
Becky Harris added this to 15 Props That Are Tops With Stylists
Firewood. We've had the conversation about the damage firewood can do many times, but we can't help but be drawn to the familiar texture of split logs. Just make sure they are bug free and truly dry before you bring them indoors.Check out stylish log storage for contemporary homes and for traditional homes.
7. Add coziness with a screen. In a large, open space, you may want to create an area that feels more protected and intimate — decorative screens are your friend for this. Partially folded and placed behind your sofa, a screen will create the impression of a smaller room without stopping the flow of the room.
Mary Jo Bowling added this to Stack in Style With a Creative Woodpile
5. Use Existing Architectural FeaturesContrast can make a strong design statement. In this home the shelves that flank the fireplace are partially filled with firewood. They give the otherwise formal room a rustic nature.
