Antique-Filled Sitting Room
Traditional antiques are balanced with contemporary patterns.
Inspiration for this sitting room came from the plush cherry-framed daybed, an Empire antique picked up in France in 1990. To freshen its look, Ouellette reupholstered it in acid-green, zebra-patterned cut velvet. Intricate wall panelling and buttoned-up antiques like the architectural etchings, crystal chandelier and dark-wood console are balanced by contemporary metal-framed slipper chairs and 1970s-style mirrored cube tables.
