There's an art to designing a glamorous Living Room. Here are some fabulous, out of the ordinary pieces that will certainly set the tone and keep them talking! We're going to design a room for you by putting several of the components together. Mind you, this may not be "your" style but the design development process is the same in every space.


Elegant embroidered fabric was the starting point for this exposed wood frame, influencing the open fretwork design on each arm panel. The Tuxedo Black finish is further set off by matte brass plated metal accents and a lush textured fabric. Float this sofa in a room in which you are able to take in all the sides we think it's stunning from every angle. Take your seats, please. We can customize this with different fabrics.


Since the sofa has square lines we like adding some softness with this very simple yet elegant curved cocktail table. This English reproduction features a variety of old world techniques including fine marquetry, eglomise, and gesso. Martini anyone!


Here is the Lattice chair. What a beauty!



Add a coordinating oblong pillow to this pretty chair (we suggest the wide stripe drapery fabric) and it becomes the perfect companion to our other upholstery pieces. Notice that this room is coming together with both a feminine and a masculine feel. Can't you just picture Audrey Hepburn entertaining in this Living Room? It's divine in our opinion. Classic design never goes out of style!



Lighting plays a very important role in creating ambiance. Place this sensational chandelier in the center of the room and add sconces on each side of the sofa with a large piece of artwork in between. This lighting is handcrafted by a manufacturer that we love. They create imaginative accents with the flexibility to serve as the muse or the finishing touch and provide clever, whimsical, unexpected and astonishing design creativity fashioned from wonderful materials.

Simple freehanging drapery panels with sheers underneath add texture and softness to the window. The light gray walls create a calm peaceful space. The drapery rods compliment and coordinate with the chair details and the light fixtures. It's all in the details!


Is it wood or tile? This fabulous flooring is porcelian wood tile! We're installing it in a LOT of homes. It's easy to maintain, wears well and it's hard to tell the difference. Your friends will be getting down on their knees to check it out.

 A large area rug not only "warms" the space it also helps absorb the sound! Place the area rug in front of the sofa to fill the space. We suggest at least an 8' x 10' size depending on the size of your area.
