Modern Media

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This client’s stated requirements for her family/media room:  more seating; a furniture arrangement that promotes conversation and connectivity when the TV is off, easy popcorn reach and good viewing for all when the movie is on;  a hipper media console; a “Chicago Cool” feel (the city from which they hail); a non frou-frou window treatment that addresses a southern exposure, lets light in when desired, but provides near blackout when the movie is rolling; and cool art.

The solution:

The furniture:  a steel grey angular sectional; an off-white occasional chair with contrasting curves; tables in a variety of interesting shapes and materials – a rectangular travertine cocktail table, a hammered nickel drum table and a round end table with an intersecting polished stainless steel base and a grey cherry wood top; a mid-century modern Rubik entertainment console in tarnished silver – with a paneled front that is nearly art in itself.  The upholstered items were pulled away from the walls and clustered around the cocktail table.

The window treatment – dark wood toned Allure shades introducing modern horizontal lines that close completely for movie watching.

The art – original commissioned artwork designed to meet the color, style and size objectives of the client; sculptures and accessories in silver leaf.
