Living Room

This home was built in 1952. the was completely gutted and the floor plans was opened to provide for a more contemporary lifestyle. A simple palette of concrete, wood, metal, and stone provide an enduring atmosphere that respects the vintage of the home.

Lots of companies sell them. It is from the Eames Aluminum group produced by Herman Miller and of course there are lots of copies too.

Maybe American Clay "porcelina" or similar. I find it incredibly asinine that you would post your work here, and then deny an inquiry for the origin of the most prominent part of your photo. Disclaimer or no, it's rude.

Is that a gas fireplace? If so, what brand or where can it be purchased?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
What type of artisan did you commission to do the fireplace? When I look up plaster artisans it is for a faux painted finish- not concrete. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Consider composition - if you don't get it right when you shoot it, it's very easy to crop a photo in the computer later on. Also, adding details like the yellow flowers and making sure that the fireplace is turned on make a huge difference.
