Fresh Blue Sofa

A custom-made carpet adds a graphic hit of pattern.

The spirit of this early 19th-century house — designed by New Yorker Steven Gambrel — is present everywhere, but its subtlety is subsumed by contemporary boldness. Gambrel himself designed the sofa, which lends a youthful feel to the traditional room.
