In this guest house living room, the designers made the most of the space by using furniture with functionality (like the glass nesting tables) and built-in storage (end tables with cabinets or drawers).
In the minimalist home office, the design is kept streamlined to spotlight the stunning view out floor-to-ceiling windows. Nesting tables are all glass and a mirrored desk does the neat trick of seeming to disappear.
This inviting sitting room features a pink silk velvet sofa with nailhead detail, ivory faux shagreen nesting tables and a large leather upholstered ottoman. Golden lamps add a metallic touch while the paintings pull jewel tones into the room.
This master bedroom sitting area is sleek and minimal, in keeping with the decor throughout the modern California home. A streamlined fireplace and nesting tables form a cozy spot to sit and talk, read or simply relax at the end of the day.
The key to making rooms feel well curated and balanced is the proper mix of organic materials. Nearly every element in this room is made from all-natural materials, including the driftwood floor lamps, Belgian-linen upholstery, cotton draperies, rustic wooden nesting tables and aged-brass hardware.
Fun details abound in this modern living space with a retro vibe. On the TV wall, painted shiplap sets the tone for a monochromatic space where teal rules the day. Nesting tables offer function and style, while textured ottomans and myriad seating options create a room that begs to host gatherings of family and friends.
Designer Jeff Troyer moved the front door from the living room to this central area, allowing the space to function as a sitting room, music room and foyer for the family. A brown L-shaped sofa is tucked into one corner of the room, while a set of three nesting tables is positioned on top of a gray area rug.
Glass and lucite elements (stair railings, nesting coffee tables) maintain a lighter-than-air feel in this sophisticated sitting area. The floating staircase joins the home's three levels; there's also a private elevator.
Floor-to-ceiling windows pour natural light into this elegantly neutral living room. A tufted ottoman is paired with a linen sofa for a cozy, relaxing spot, while nesting end tables add extra surface area when entertaining.
Patterned blue throw pillows add color to the contemporary gray sectional in this comfortable living space. A nesting coffee table is perfect for entertaining since it adds more surface space when needed. Abstract art on the walls make a bold statement.
To add life to the living room, the area rug was replaced with colorful carpet squares that also added pattern to the space. The brown pillows were swapped for colorful prints picked up on the cheap from a show house sample sale. To help accommodate up to three guests comfortably, the tiny coffee table was placed into the storage space to make room for a trio of modern nesting tables. For a wallpapered look, an 8-foot-by-4-foot sheet of 3/4-inch foam board was covered with wallpaper and fastened to the wall using double-sided tape.
Bold pops of color define this sleek living space. A round zebra-print rug, red curtains, turquoise wall inset, and yellow bolster pillows add interest while a white tile wall and floors and glass nesting coffee tables keep the room looking clean and tidy.
