In this sunken eclectic living room, a free-form banquette provides plenty of seats for entertaining. The bright orange throw pillows, cushioned seats, and shag rug add a playful pop of color against the white tile and textured walls. A wired chandelier draws the eye upward.
This wide view shows the easy transition between spaces in the great room, from the living room to open dining room and easy-access kitchen in this urban home made for modern living. The sunken design of the living room makes the space feel bigger, and creates an easy transition from the living room to the deck and backyard outside.
Purple, gold, yellow and blue pair with rich velvet, metallic shine and lacquered high gloss to create a living room design that's as visually compelling as it is luxurious. A sunken niche in the center of the coffee table makes a clever wet bar.
To make this small(ish) apartment feel bigger during its renovation, the once-sunken floor into the living room was raised to create one seemingly larger, more open space. The carpeted floor was removed and replaced with wood. A comfortable entry unifies the space.
