Transitional Americana Formal Living Room
Photography: Plate 3
Contractor: Marzilli Construction
As a couple that loves to entertain, one of the goals was making this living room slightly more formal but still comfortable. The only items that existed in the room before the redesign were a leather Chesterfield sofa and a painting found on their travels, visually anchored by two benches underneath.
Hues for the color scheme were pulled from their existing artwork. The high-back chairs have a classic geometry and antique brass nail heads which are contrasted by blue velvet upholstery with a modern diamond stitching on the sides. All of these elements were pulled together and anchored by a patterned wool rug that warms up the room. With such traditional pieces there needed to be a unique, unexpected piece—the teak, one-of-a-kind coffee table is definitely a conversation piece.
