    They are made by Contrast Lighting out of Canada. They have a variety of trim kits but make the lowest profile remodel can that we were able to find. As the project has no attic space in the original portion of the house it was the only option that could be found for recessed lighting.

    This is brick. It's a Norman brick, which is longer than standard bricks. These are from Mutual Materials.

    The chair and ottoman are made by Herman Miller, they are designed by Charles and Ray Eames. You can find them at Design Within Reach or other modern furniture stores.

    1. Orange and brown. Vibrant and earthy at the same time, orange and brown is a classic midcentury modern color combination. In this room, the bold orange wall helps highlight the dramatic wood ceiling and glass windows, features that are both typical of this era. Brown — even in the form of wood — tones down the vibrancy of orange. Also, the pairing underscores the warm nature of each color, making this midcentury space (an addition to an original midcentury home, according to architect Risa Boyer) stylish and inviting.

    AFTER: She found a modular fireplace made of lightweight pumice from Scandinavia that they clad in brick. It gives the appearance of a full masonry fireplace, without all the weight, and is supported by the wood-framed floor and deck.
