EAST BAYOU REMODELContemporary Living Room, New Orleans
A modular sectional sofa with custom silk pillows anchors the low-profile living seating arrangement. A large cowhide hide is flanked by contemporary lounge chairs and tempered glass and iron tables. The wall seen behind the couch features an original abstract painting produced by the designer, above an antique French console.
A chrome and glass pendant light sets the stage in the stepped entry landing. A bent glass console table and a custom wall clock now sit where a bedroom doorway was eliminated. The walls are painted Sandy Hook Gray a tough walls flat latex with trim painted in White Dove a satin oil-based impervex enamel.
Lafayette artist Christopher LaBauve was commissioned to create a 7’x7’ abstract landscape painting to face a large set of windows in the dining room. The painting channels the styles of Pollock, Twombly and Friedman. The wood panel features a reptilian texture created from black speedball tattoo ink and archival bookbinding resin, mounted in a custom floater frame. Highly pigmented paint powder creates swirls of yellow, the home’s signature accent color.
