Living Room

This formal living room is located in East Avenue mansion in a Preservation District. It has beautiful architectural details and I choose to leave the chandelier in place. I wanted to use elegant and contemporary furniture and showcase our local contemporary artists including furniture from Wendell Castle. The wing chair in the background was in the house and I choose to have a slip cover made for it and juxtapose it next to a very contemporary Wendell Castle side table that has an amazing crackle finish

I borrowed this rug from an oriental rug dealer who has since gone out of business. If you showed this picture to any one who deals with oriental carpets they would be able to tell you the provenance

I am very sorry but I cannot remember the name of the color - I do remember that it was from a paint company called C-2 that I not sold locally where I work anymore

@mfeducc It's a Pakistani Oushak rug, hand knotted with handspun wool and natural dyes. We can produce it for you on a custom order if you are interested.

Natural Beech 253 looks similar to the wall color and Atrium White looks like the trim, both by Benjamin Moore.

2. Create multiple seating areas within one room. If the love seats had been pushed back against the side walls in this room, the seating area would have been too spread out. By pulling the sofas up around the fireplace, it creates a more appropriately sized conversation area, as well as another area by the window, perfect for reading the paper on Sunday mornings.
