Warm Modern Living Room
Photographer: Francesco Lagnese

New Balance

Throughout the house, the juxtaposition of warm and cool colors, organic and sleek surfaces, and dark and light furnishings makes the rooms come alive. In the living room, a camel-colored leather-framed mirror adds a warm note to the cool palette. Gunmetal console tables and a travertine-and-steel coffee table offer a slick contrast to the nubby weaves of the sisal rug and linen upholstery. A pair of circa-1940s lounge chairs with ebonized frames makes the perfect retro counterpoint to a contemporary white sofa.
