sorry? it's a repete question regarding sofa. - I explored earlier inquiries about sofa, but I'm still at a loss as to whether the sofa was custom made, or sourced from manufacture/supplier. I've emailed designer of the room/home, but she may not have time for such question. Any feedback appreciated. Stu

Rugs Done Right
There are lots of great shag options in this tone. Typically polyester are the most commonly purchased lately as they are extremely soft to touch and add a great luxurious feel to the space.

Here are two great options:

If the sofa isn't vintage knoll or steelcase then it is a reproduction from Modernica in Los Angeles. They are awesome in person - very sleek and high quality. They are, however, very firm.

It looks to me like a vintage Knoll piece designed by Florence Knoll. There are similar ones made now but if you look closely it has steel legs and a slanted back with the steel bar across back. It is beautiful from front or back. I purchased two settees like this piece in 1965 and just had them reupholstered and they look like new pieces.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The green Orange Slice Chair, originally designed by Pierre Paulin in 1960, is the focal point in the living room. The ceiling and fireplace were painted white to reflect the natural light coming in from the outdoors and accentuate the warm tone of the hardwood floors.Chell took color inspiration for new furniture from some of the original pieces: A green apple-hued lamp, for example, prompted the incorporation of a variety of green tones into new furniture, fabrics, vases and a wall covering in the dining area. "It was both a challenge and joy to incorporate furniture that the family inherited, including the two vintage armchairs, side table, the illuminated globe and the bright green lamp on top of the armoire," says Chell, who chose the gray upholstery for the armchairs and matching sofa, providing a neutral background that highlights the green accents in the decor.
Becky Harris added this to Modern Icons: Pierre Paulin Chairs
The shape of the Orange Slice plays nice with the curves of a Noguchi coffee table.
Midcentury EverythingAll the midcentury design icons have made a huge resurgence in the past decade: Eames, Saarinen, Nelson, Bertoia. You can't turn around without hitting your shin on a Tulip Chair.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 10 Midcentury Features to Treasure
Transom windows. The next room was a dining area. There was a wall that separated it from the kitchen. The wall had transom windows at the top, which let beautiful light into the kitchen. The low and long windows added to the modern aesthetic.
Mitchell Parker added this to Why We Love Midcentury Modern Design
The '50s and '60s Were Sexy TimesI can imagine that it might be frustrating for some people to look around and see that contemporary furniture and architecture seem to have picked up only where minimalism left off in the 1950s.“Why such apparent paralysis?” asks Gord Peteran, a professor of design at OCAD University in Toronto. “It's true: Design mags are filled with white, empty rooms; walls of glass; white leather chairs even with postwar metal wire legs. Why Las Vegas pallet curvilinear minimal modern — again?"He continues, "Every period throughout history has been partly influenced by history. Humans tend to paint a cozy picture of the past, due to our convenient ability to edit. Every new generation must claim the world as theirs. Beginning with their genesis. And it has always been considered sophisticated to collect antiques. The Egyptians did it; the Victorians did it; the thirtysomethings do it. This historical foundation provides the courage to take tiny steps into the new, which actually terrifies us. Especially for the generation that missed it, 1960 seems like an exciting, sexy time. Note the popularity of everything from Star Trek to Superman.”
