The beauty of parquet floors is their flexibility; They can be just as home in a midcentury modern basement as they are in this traditional living room. Here they carry through the entire open living space.
In this beautiful living room, traditional sensibilities unite different elements for a balanced whole. A mix of graceful lines, bold accessories and exquisite furnishings brings out the underlying drama in the space.
This neutral-toned living room has large windows with valances and curtains, a wooden floor with a patterned area rug, and traditional-style sofa and chairs that encircle a round coffee table. Rich wood furniture contrasts the neutral light fixtures and botanical wall prints while the open windows allow plenty of natural light to compliment the space.
A picture window, flanked by double-hung ones, gathers light into this cozy, inviting space. Two sofas -- a leather Chesterfield and an upholstered Lawson-arm -- face each other to create a conversation pit. A wingback chair sits to the side, perfect for reading in front of the fire.
A vintage wood buffet serves as a credenza in this soft blue living room, providing stylish storage space. A concrete bust, sculptural horse lamp and oil painting adorn the credenza, lending traditional style to the space.
