The LeBlanc-Cox Residence Contemporary Living Room, Houston

Featured on the 2011 Houston Modern Home Tour. The design was inspired by the home featured in the 1955 Alfred Hitchcock thriller, North by Northwest. It is a modern design with an overall "Frank Lloyd Wright" feel. Open spaces with high ceilings and large windows, the home backs up to the Hogg Bird Sanctuary and Bayou Bend. The pool is also custom designed to the slope of the property featuring two levels and three waterfalls.

Hello Mjekat,
Yes, I designed it. It is 28' wide x 28' long x 14' tall. It is one of the nicer living rooms that I have designed. Thanks for the kind words.

Are you aware of the floor deminions of the sunken living room? - Far too often, I've seen attempts to have high ceilings that only make the room feel boxy instead of open and airy. With the provided ceiling height of 14'6" -- it seems fair to think the room is 25x30??

The room is 27'-8" x 27'-10" - it's a big one.

Not sure. The homeowners travel a lot, and they picked up the rugs and light fixtures from all over.

Thanks for the kind words. I am working on a bigger one in Carlton Woods in the Woodlands right now. You will have to check it out once I post pictures next year!

The windows company is Western Windows and Doors. I believe the person we worked with was Mike McCalister. - its been a while.

Hello. I hope you are well. I am not sure, since the homeowners purchased the furniture on their own.

Hello. If memory serves me right, then it is cultured stone over typical wood framing (plus the typical cultured stone attachment details).

Hello, The homeowners made all of the furniture choices on their own, so I am not sure about the brand.
