The designers wanted the wow factor in the foyer of this home, so they added an art piece in the ceiling to draw the eye upward and add texture and dimension. Suspended from the ceiling are white pendant lights that give the space a little bit of modern flair, while a green velvet bench resting beneath a unique wood framed mirror makes the space pop. To give some boundaries to the space, designers added a woven rug.
