I am in love with that couch! I would need one that is strong and in a lovely tan color. The material would have to be easy to clean as I do have a dog.

Looks like it could be the Mushroom Coffee Table. Mushroom is made from harvested mahagony with various finishes. It's 42" in diameter, 16" high, and costs $1,200, if still available at LivFurniture in SF.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Niche Interiors added this to Space Planning Your Way to a Cozy Living Room
Great use of space in this room. There are thoughtfully placed side tables to place drinks and the intimate placement of furniture gives that cozy feel.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Cutting Corners with Sectional Sofas
If you have a narrower space and it’s the longer end of the sectional that you need to balance, consider facing it with two individual chairs. Using only one chair would be visually off-kilter. If you choose two fairly minimal chairs, like in this example, you will likely have room to include a coffee table.

the fireplace, bookshelves, the cozy sectional that has a built-in feel, and how it defines the cozy nook-like space. THe windows make it feel like it's not closed in, and I love the round, solid wood, coffe table. The wood paneling on the vaulted ceiling are excellent too! I would have solid bookshelves on both sides of the fireplace, and softer chairs next to the windows.
