This sophisticated modern dining room is a cool mix of geometric shapes and textures. Exposed brick makes up the back wall. The metallic chandelier echoes the steel tubing on the ceiling. And the dining chairs swoop and curve beneath the wooden table.
This dining room, featured on HGTV Design Star, features a rich orange accent wall and heavy wood furniture. Light hardwood floors are offset by exposed brick walls, while a mix of seating keeps the dining area relaxed. White cornices frame the windows with airy white curtains.
HGTV Design Star judge Genevieve Gorder says, "In order to make the brick wall the focal point, it's necessary to pull back on the opposing walls. They should've brought in light, creamy, smooth textures to give the space a greater sense of grandeur while highlighting the earthy color and rougher texture of the bricks."
Modern furnishings tread lightly on the distinctive architecture of this white loft apartment in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood. A sleek steel dining table is surrounded by sinuous leather chairs from Ligne Roset. The whimsical, leaf-like chandelier is by Moooi.
This stylish loft is located in a historical downtown area and features a contemporary, open living space with urban-style brick walls. Unique furniture placement makes the room feel comfortable and inviting.
A red sectional with a few patterned cushions add an interesting piece on its own, but it is dressed up by blue, yellow and green throw pillows in this eclectic living room. A brick wall gives the space an urban vibe, and a white contemporary coffee table anchors the room.
A large wall mirror with a striking black frame makes this cozy living room look larger. A brick accent wall adds character to the space, which is furnished with neutral, contemporary-style sofas and two small green trunks for coffee tables.
