The goal was to give the home a worldly and globally inspired feel so new custom designs, textural fabrics and finishes were incorporated along with Asian and African artifacts and antiques.

The area rug, as well as the lounge chairs, are custom pieces designed by Habachy Designs. The great room was an expansive, extended oval, and it posed a challenge as to how to divide the room into separate living spaces. In order to emphasize the curvature of the architecture, Habachy Designs mimicked the shape in the tone-on-tone rug. This allowed for a focal area and living space to be created that would be harmonious with the entirety of the great room.
