The Random Light, designed by Bertjan Pot for Moooi, is a modern-day classic. Stunning in white or black and in the various sizes offered. They are also available as really cool floor lamps, too. They are the perfect fixtures for this room, they look amazing here!

You can visit the product pages on our website for more info on the Random Light (now available in LED) and to buy.

Where did you source the floor couches?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
The couches are Roche Bobois' Mah Jong line by Hans Hopfer. You can find them on Roche Bobois' website (which is flash or I'd give you a direct link),. You're looking at about 12k USD for a decently sized set. You can google for some DIY options that people have done. If you search Houzz for Mah Jong, you'll see some of the different fabric options.

All of the white walls and ceilings in the home are "decorators white" by Benjamin Moore.

M Lifestyles
don't know, but priced one configuration of the MahJong a couple weeks ago and the cost was $39,000 cdn, mostly driven by the cost of the Missoni fabric. With a more "reasonable" fabric, cost was $23,000

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lincoln Park is filled with newly constructed homes, and according to Goulette, others with different priorities would've torn down the brick-clad structure and started anew. "Our clients have five school-age children, so they really wanted the home to be fun, functional and educational from the get-go," says Goulette.Floor cushions customized to form a casual sectional provide a gathering space that's right outside of the kids' rooms, marked by the sliding barn doors.
Cathy Lara added this to 8 Delightfully Casual Common Spaces
This Chicago upper-level living room was built with the kids in mind and is situated right outside of their bedrooms. The modular floor seating arrangements can be reconfigured to form smaller or larger clusters. Lesson from this room: Varying the seat options with ottomans, floor pillows and everything in between tells people that they can sit back and relax.
