Modern, Minimalist Living Room with Reclaimed Wood
The minimalist design of this living room is highlighted by its use of open floor space, with a wall of bookshelves elevated by steel pipes. Reclaimed wood flooring connects with the wood ceiling and gives a nod to the home's sustainable design. The homeowner, a professor of environmental studies, requested a home that runs on solar power, recycles gray water and captures rain water in cisterns. All interior doors are built from recycled flooring.
