Comfortable & Traditional Living Room

A bay window and fireplace alcove balance the large proportions of this space.

Elegant seating — slipper chairs in taupe wool, and stools in hand-woven tiger-print silk velvet — surrounds a Louis XVI desk cut down to coffee-table height. (The sophisticated room allows for two generous seating areas.) The bronze statue was originally a garden sculpture. Interior designer Sloan Mauran considers this the best room in her house. "I didn't have to do much more than paint and upgrade the lighting," she says.
