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.

I need help for the layout of my great room. - My great room is 14feet wide and 25 feet long. There is a fireplace along one wall. There are no walls opposite the fireplace. The far wall has a large flat window. The wall opposite to the window is 5 ft.7". I have a large sofa, 2 large recliner chairs and a small swivel chair and onto on. Would you be able to suggest furniture placement?

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.
