Fran Kerzner- DESIGN SYNTHESIS
The client wanted to update her tired, dated family room. They had grown accustomed to having reclining seats so one challenge was to create a new reclining sectional that looked fresh and contemporary. This one has three reclining seats plus convenient USB ports. They also needed new custom cabinetry to accommodate their new 75" flat screen so we worked with the cabinetry and AV vendors to design a unit that would encompass all of the AV plus display and storage extending all the way to the window seat. We designed a new coffered ceiling with lighting in each bay. And built out the fireplace with dimensional tile to the ceiling. The color scheme was kept intentionally monochromatic to show off the different textures with the only color being touches of blue in the pillows and accessories to pick up the art glass.

Mid-century modern homes are modern houses from the 1950s and 1960s. Frequently referred to as both mid-century and mid-century modern, this well-recognized style includes Eichler ranches and split-level homes. Mid-century architecture has long and low rooflines, large windows, entry courtyards and an emphasis on indoor-outdoor living.

Mid-century decor is easy to recognize — iconic furniture, pop art, geometric shapes and bright colors make the space feel retro and vintage.
