One of our favorite aspects of design is just how fluid it can be. That’s why we are so excited to share our latest project with you! This mesmerizing mid-century modern home in the Midwest features an open floor plan, exposed brick, and plenty of dreamy natural light. The great bones of this home made for the perfect canvas to design in.

Our clients had two requests when we began: a tufted leather sofa and to feature the vivid print by acclaimed photographer Slim Aarons. With this in mind, we created a living space that mixed our favorite parts of traditional and modern styles. As for the tufted leather sofa, we decided on the Chester Stationary Sofa in Malawi Tonga.

The contrast of this rich, dark sofa against the light brick wall draws the eye in and up to the vibrant photograph. It might not be in the center of the room, like the Theodore Coffee Table, but it certainly is the center of attention in this awesome space.

The  Chester Sofa in Malawi Tonga  features a sophisticated silhouette with tufted leather and classic nailhead detailing.

The living room opens directly onto the kitchen and to distinguish the two spaces in this open concept home, we used the Lefka Mist Rug. The perfect compliment to the light and airy rug is the Transitional 3-Seat Sofa.

Upholstered in Crypton Fabric, this sofa is prepared to handle any spill. It’s comfortable, functional, and frames the space perfectly.

The  Transitional 3-Seat Sofa  features modern lines and Crypton upholstery — it’s no wonder it’s one of our favorite sofas to bring it into a space. See how we used the sofa in  our Lakeview project.

Our client’s have such a versatile style, it was important that we brought that through in this living room. One way we did this was by using 3 different styles for seating.

From a traditional tufted leather sofa, to the clean-lined transitional sofa in Crypton, this living room goes to show that it pays to think outside the box when it comes to planning seating. Don’t be afraid to mix and match!

At the rooms center, clean lines & geometric shapes from the  Theodore Coffee Table  balance the natural textures from the  porous vase  and  bone styling beads . The mixing of these modern and natural elements bring bring a sophisticated eclecticism into the space.
