A turquoise and brown patterned chair and coordinating chaise lounge wow in this sophisticated sitting room. The brown and turquoise striped carpet accents the furniture, and cream drapes soften the space.

"We wanted to create a luxurious gentleman's cabinet where one could retreat to escape from the bustle of modern day life," say designers Alberto Villalobos and Mercedes Desio. The herringbone-patterned floor is leather, as are the wall panels. The lighting is inspired by chiaroscuro.
Floor-to-ceiling wood paneling creates a classic environment in this elegant sitting room. Elaborate moldings add traditional detail to the space, while a small round table surrounded by comfortable chairs is a great spot to chat, play a game or listen to music.
