This neutral transitional living room features a custom gray Hollywood Regency style tuxedo sofa from Gilded Home. Barbara Barry Chairs with textured white fabric, a mirrored coffee table with walnut trim, and a carved white wool area rug provide texture and interest. The sofa includes throw pillows in the same color family as the etched metal wall art in shades of gold and silver.
To make a statement, designer Claire Paquin incorporated accent colors and patterns on the main pieces of furniture. The floral upholstery on the back of the tuxedo sofa is a gorgeous twist, adding feminine flair to its sleek silhouette.
Sometimes, the architecture of your home is the best guide for the style of the furnishings you fill it with; other times, its surroundings will direct you. When choosing furniture for this living room, designer Kristen Rivoli took the latter tack. “This space is in a building right next to the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), in New York City, so our inspiration was the classic midcentury modern furniture you might find at the museum,” she says. “We found the side table at a vintage furniture store, but the sofa is new—it’s available through KRID but it has the lines of a classic tuxedo-style sofa. The Brittania light fixture is also new but adds to the midcentury style, and the toss pillows are custom-made in a mellow color palette typical of the ‘50s and ‘60s.”
This elegant transitional living room includes neutral tones with bursts of blue. Although the space has limited square footage, it extends upward two stories. It features a neutral sectional sofa, blue tuxedo armchairs, a mirrored media armoir and blue-and-white chinoiserie curtains.
This small living area lives large on style, with an ovoid teak midcentury modern coffee table taking center stage. The tuxedo-arm velvet sofa, upholstered ottomans and modern arm chair are sleek yet welcoming. The colors of the painting reflect in the pillows and throw.
