This stunning, 2400 sq. ft. luxury penthouse loft features a bonus space down the hallway from the open-concept living and dining room. The spacious second floor living area with sofas and bookshelf offers the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate.

By separating this large space into sections, Dad can enjoy the game with his buddies, while Mom relaxes at the table, enjoying a glass of wine with friends. A waffled ceiling and dramatic glass pendant lights add visual interest to the space.
This modern lounge is layered with shades of gray and taupe with a balance of dark furnishings and airy silver finishes. The lounge is just off the entry and the perfect space to hang out with friends over good conversation and a few cocktails.
This multi-purpose "do room" in HGTV Green Home 2011 includes a casual-chic seating area with two slipper chairs, upholstered in classic houndstooth print. They sit atop a carpet-square rug and a Grecian key fabric throw pillows rests on each chair. A natural wood lamp with iron stud accents and linen shade provides additional light on overcast days. A barn door, constructed of beetle-kill pine wood, separates the room from the first floor.
Whether you want to play, work or relax this room has a spot for everything. Designer Felicia Foster this space to work as efficiently as possible, so she added a compact desk, a pinball machine and a comfortable sofa to make this a multipurpose area.
