Clean & Sophisticated Living Room

Sleek lounge chairs and metal coffee table lend a modern edge to a traditionally detailed space.

Larger artwork and a mix of metals amp up the glamour. The rich look of panelling was achieved by applying moulding to the drywall, then painting it all in the same colour — beautiful and budget-friendly. The geometric lines are reiterated in the new boxy chairs and Art Deco-inspired fireplace screen by designer Stephanie Brown. The screen’s trimwork continues the lines of the chairs.
