W Residence Living RoomModern Living Room, Austin

The dining room is open to the living room, and we wanted the 2 spaces to have an individual personality yet flow together in a cohesive way. The living room is very long and narrow, so finding the right sofa was of utmost importance. We decided to create 2 distinct entertaining areas using the Molteni & C Freestlyle Sectional. Since the backs are separate pieces from the seats, the whole sofa can be reconfigured in any number of ways to fit the situation. The fabric for the sofa is a beautiful charcoal with great texture, providing the perfect backdrop to all of the colorful pillows from Maharam, Knoll Textiles and Missoni Home. In one area we used a pair of Moroso Bloomy Chairs to create an intimate seating area, perfect for enjoying cocktails. In the other area, we included the owner’s existing Ligne Roset Facet Chair for a pop of color. Instead of tables, we used Molteni & C ottomans for maximum flexibility and added seating when necessary. The wall features a customized built-in cabinet that holds the stereo equipment and turntable, along with 2 illuminated benches from Molteni & C that provide great soft indirect light. The geometric shape of the wall unit is counterbalanced by the incredible piece of artwork by Erin Curtis. Finally, the layering of 3 Golran Carpet Reloaded rugs create the perfect platform for the furniture, along with reinforcing the modern eclectic feel of the room.

    This is the Freestyle sofa from Molteni & C. It is a fantastic sectional collection that allows for ultimate flexibility, customization and modularity. It works especially well in large spaces like this to create multiple conversation areas, but also works great in small spaces to make the most of the space.

    I don't have the exact paint color, but it is a very light, slightly off-white.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Fred Albert added this to Divide and Conquer: How to Furnish a Long, Narrow RoomSep 6, 2013

In this Austin, Texas, living room, a free-form sectional is a contemporary variation of back-to-back sofas. One side faces an intimate seating area; the other embraces a more casual space furnished with ottomans that can double as seating.

Becky Harris added this to On Trend: Antique Rugs to Dye ForJun 20, 2013

Tip: When looking for a patchwork overdyed antique rug, Basham-Hoelscher recommends finding one in which you can see the stitches on top. "If the stitching is underneath, it can create awkward puckering," she says.

Cathy Lara added this to Entertaining at Home: A Host of Party-Prep IdeasApr 5, 2012

In this living room, Urbanspace Interiors created two distinct entertaining areas with the use of this Molteni & C Freestyle sectional, which can be reconfigured in a number of different ways. Instead of tables, the designers used ottomans for maximum flexibility and added seating when necessary, placing all the pieces relatively close to each other so that guests don’t have to lean in too close to hear each other. As you can see, mixing and matching furniture from different parts of the house is absolutely fine and can actually make the room feel more intimate and lived-in.
