This couple lives in a beautiful contemporary home in the Ukrainian Village neighborhood of Chicago. They initially hired us to stop by for a few hours and pick paint colors, as well as to provide some assistance with selecting a couch for their living room. After picking paint colors, they realized that they wanted more of our help with designing the rest of their living room and other rooms of the house.
For the living room, we focused on creating a clean design with warm and natural elements and bold artwork.
- A clean sofa with a tufted back anchors the room while still being comfortable to sit on.
- The nested coffee table is built with a rustic steel base and a tabletop made from reclaimed wood.
- Matching black leather Barcelona chairs add additional seating without weighing down the end of the room that overlooks the basement family room and the floor to ceiling windows.
- A thick shag rug made from 100% New Zealand Felted Wool is extremely soft underfoot and helps cut down reflective noises common in large open spaces like this.
- A large set of canvas prints add a bold touch of color and style.
- The grey mirror mounted over the fireplace with metal offsets creates the feeling of a mantle without taking away from the clean lines of the fireplace.
- A large dining table with leather-wrapped chairs create a space for entertaining up to 8 guests.
