Black wall panelling with gold trim and corner embellishments adds texture and a sophisticated base for this sitting area design. Wand sconce lighting is mounted within the panels reflecting a warm glow on the black paint. The deep, vivid green of the velvet chair looks beautiful against the wall and black and white patterned floor. A geometric table adds the finishing touch to the sleek concept.
For this formal dining room, designers wanted to make a space that was inviting and luxurious, but not too stuffy. A few rustic touches—the chairs' nailhead trim—mellow the formality of the glass prism light fixture and sconces.
This bedroom gets a sophisticated look from midcentury modern furnishings. The focal point of the room is a large circular drum ceiling light with dangling prisms that shines light on the bed with a nail head upholstered headboard.
The dramatic entry staircase at the ground level is located beneath a central atrium, with a partial glass floor above to bring in natural light. Architect James Carpenter designed a dichroic glass prism that diffuses daylight from clerestory windows into a spectrum of colors that shift with the viewing angle.
