Traditional meets contemporary in this cozy sitting room. A slipcovered sofa and white leather wing-back chair provide a cozy place to sit back and enjoy the fire. The zebra-patterned ottoman and modern side table beautifully contrast the colonial-inspired artwork hanging above the fireplace.
Two traditional-style wing-back chairs beautifully contrast with rough-hewn ceiling beams in this rustic-Southwestern home. Large glass pedant lights draw the eye up and illuminate the hallway that lies in between the sitting area and the dining room beyond. A clever arrangement of artwork lines the wall of the hallway for visual interest.
A factory cart coffee table and reclaimed barn wood hung over the fireplace mantel add natural texture to this casual living space. A large brown sofa with white trim and a wing back chair provide a comfy place to sit back and enjoy the fireplace. The trio of windows are adorned with floor-to-ceiling indigo-blue drapes and bamboo blinds.
At first glance, this living room is by-the-book traditional, but a closer look reveals that the design drifts into contemporary territory. Staying true to the home's traditional architecture, the majority of the furnishings -- such as the wing-backed chair and antique side tables -- follow suit but transitional accent chairs and bookshelf accessories give the room an updated feel.
The open air living room in this Point Lorna, California, villa home spills out toward a courtyard terrace. Plush sofas and wing back chairs dominate the interior, where seating is accented with plush lilac pillows to complement vases of flowers decorating a low marble coffee table. The cylindrical vases throughout the room complement modern solar-powered candelabras overhead.
This family room features a diverse mix of fabrics, patterns and materials to create a globally-inspired, eclectic space. The deep midnight blue accent color on the ikat drapery is carried over to the hand-painted wooden plaques above the fireplace. The whole look is grounded with a large oriental rug and a classic-lined sofa. Accent furniture, including a unique hammered bronze metal coffee table, modern orange chair and classic wing-back chair complete the look.
Floor-to-ceiling windows allow lots of natural light to pour into this elegant cream-colored living room. White ceiling beams add architectural interest and emphasize the room’s height. Neutral furnishings, a traditional rug, full-length gold drapes and the baby-grand piano add to the room’s sophisticated, timeless look. Design by Kristi Nelson.
This living room features a pair of high-back tufted wing chairs by Christopher Guy, a barely there acrylic cocktail table by Diane Paparo and a chocolate brown velvet sofa. Pops of turquoise and pink add a bit of color to the space.
Upholstered, elegant dining chairs with high backs provide a transitional design element to this dining room by designer Valerie Ruddy.

With an abundance of comfortable and plush furnishings, this dining room is just right for entertaining family and friends.
