CONTEMPORARY COASTAL LIVING ROOM, Larchmont, NY: The homeowner’s design aspirations were to use the long awkward living space more functionally and incorporate the existing sofa and plaid chairs that were felt to be too traditional into a more modern living room design with fresh colors and coastal details. A new furniture plan including a plum flat-weave area rug creates a more central seating area focused on the fireplace. Existing wing chairs are paired in the corner with a tall drum shade floor lamp for the avid reader homeowner’s reading nook. Clear console table and glass pendant brass standing lamp bring in contemporary details that do not crowd the space. A mid-century styled hand-woven rope chair blends sophisticated lines with a relaxed coastal vibe. Accents in plum and teal rejuvenate the space for a younger, stylish space fit for friend and family gatherings.
