This show stopping living room design creates the feeling of a larger space by using the stripes to draw the eye upward. Black and white walls add a sense of whimsy while creating a bold, daring statement. Beautiful, custom gray sofas draw frame the room and create a focal point of the fireplace that is defined by a black mantel with a white, marble slab inlay that adds softness to the room's design. Finally, a long, dramatic chandelier hangs eight feet from the floor to finish the space with a feeling of intimacy and warmth.
The design goal in the family room was to maximize seating using stylish and comfortable pieces, so designers set up the main seating area with a custom, gray velvet sofa, a pair of velvet, pin-stripe wingback chairs and a par of wood framed swivel chairs. For a punch of pattern, they layered a zebra print cowhide rug under a brass and glass cocktail table, while a rectangular Swarovski crystal chandelier brings glam into the space without blocking the view of the city below. Finally, an element of art was added to the large TV wall with metallic gold and silver discs that perfectly finish off the design of the room.
