This contemporary home office combines style, comfort and function. A chrome and glass desk takes center stage, while a flokati rugs adds softness to the space. A vintage Lucite bookcase adds to the modern feel and provides open storage.
An ornate Louis XV bookcase sits behind an upholstered sofa in this traditional living room. Elegant details in the space, such as the gold hardware on the bookcase and the lucite candlesticks on the coffee table, make the room feel detailed and sophisticated.
A comfortable sofa sits in a nook surrounded by stylish, functional bookcases. Glossy gray walls create a soft backdrop to the space, while a sisal area rug is paired with eclectic pieces, like a gold trunk and Lucite side table.
Designer Jonathan Savage of Savage Interior Design, based in Nashville, Tenn., recommends using coffee tables with multiple levels for displaying items. This one, from Lillian August, a fine home furnishings retailer, is a brass table with a shagreen base and a top shelf made of glass with silver leafing on the backside. You can find a similar two-level design and mix of metals in tables priced for your budget. A mix of glasswork, vases and urns give it a glamorous feel, while the bust on a lucite base brings a rustic nature to the coffee table vignette.
