I'm still in Vegas. I'm actually cutting out early and leaving the packing for the other guys. I'll give you some answers when I can type instead OC pecking on the iPhone.
But...don't buy decorative products from the big box stores. The best metallic paint available to the public is Modern Masters. Metallics ate tricky to apply. It takes practice. Rollers are mediocre and a good hvlp (high volume low pressure) set up is expensive. Multiple layers cut with glaze gives a great look. More later.

Hi thirdstone, I love your house, giving me so much inspiration for the new home that I"m trying to renovate. I really love the floor. I know it is discontinued. Any ideas where else I can find something similar? Is the original panel glossy? If not, how did you make it glossy?

Thanks for the kinds words. Have i found something similar? I really wish that was the case. If you spot something similar for the same cost, i would be interested knowing also ;)

p.s. - the gloss finish is original although it doesn't appear that way in the IKEA photo of the floor sample.

Why such a small rug? - With such a large room, so much seating, and such a large coffee table, this rug loses all impact.

Greetings Uribe Studio Inc. - There isn't much maintenance at all. However, I would recommend protecting the flooring with a rug at entry locations. The high-gloss finish does show dust and foot marks but is super easy to clean. ~ thirdstone inc. [^]

Hi nanders - Thanks for the compliment!

The rug was sourced from IKEA. We're not sure if they're still available however.

We specified roller shades. See graphic. Roller shades are located in a 'pocket' along the windows. Note the Section Detail where we furred (dropped) the ceiling to create this pocket.

Hope this helps!.

Laminate tile - Love this home such a beautiful and well thought out design. I would really like to know if the glossy finish is a part of the laminate floor tile, or was it a treatment applied after installation?

Hi sacho1

Thanks for the question and interest in the LG House. The millwork is custom designed and built to suit the project. The panels are 1/2" thick Maple veneered ply with a Walnut Stain (WA-7205 - www.wallsalive.com)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Mitchell Parker added this to Houzz Tour: Wide-Open Views on a Narrow Canadian Lot
The flooring is a laminate in a solid charcoal gray to help ground the space, with a reflective finish for an airy feel. The TV is concealed behind maple wood cabinets with a walnut stain. “We wanted a traditional parlour feel, where we can sit with guests and have coffee or wine and a discussion,” the homeowner says. The inspiration came from Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's classic Farnsworth House (shown in this roundup of must-know modern homes). “I always wanted a living room with a modernist feel,” says the owner.
John Hill added this to Timeless Design Ideas for Small Spaces
Thinking MinimalisticallyThe first chapter in Brown’s book presents a project by Tadao Ando, a Japanese architect known for concrete formed and poured to perfection, and for sparsely furnished abodes. But minimalism need not be lack of stuff. Another way to think of it is as keeping spaces clear by putting the stuff away. Therefore lots of easily accessible storage (easily accessible being the most important part of this tactic) works best in freeing spaces from clutter.A Mini Guide to Minimalism
