Rooftop Deck With Large Cantilever Umbrellas Over Neutral Cushion Furniture and Patterned Floor
“To create this peaceful retreat above bustling Center City Philadelphia, we selected natural materials and finishes to bring softness and comfort to what had been a barren rooftop,” says designer Barbara Eberlein. “Teak furniture does not need to be stored indoors during the winter,” she notes, and “direct sunlight is mitigated with enormous cantilever umbrellas.” Get the same effect in your own city sanctuary with a single umbrella and a cushy all-weather armchair.
This super chic living room mixes rustic elements (the cow hide rug and brown leather sofa) with urban edge and results in a room that's both cool and comfortable. Instead of closing off the space with a ceiling, occupants can see past the exposed wood beams up into the level above.
Floor to ceiling windows surround this sleek, urban living room offering panoramic views of the city. Muted, neutral tones combine with clean, sharp lines to create a sophisticated space that is a trademark of modern design.
Night or day, this urban living room always has an incredible view. The white leather furniture mimics the white of the skyscrapers outside the window and makes a nice contrast with the dark wood floors.

The large flexible open space offers jaw-dropping views of downtown San Diego and the bay through the floor-to-ceiling windows.

Open shelving adds an industrial touch while pulling all the homeowner's curated pieces together for a comfortable, lived-in feel. Exposed duct work and cable lighting accentuate the urban setting, while midcentury details polish off the design.
