the challenge of this large, rectangular living room was bringing intimacy and continuity to the expansive space. we started with a grand, persian carpet generous enough to unite the room and also to serve as artwork on the floor. we added spacious sectional sofas at opposite corners that mirror each other, defining and clarifying the space. the sofas were joined by rounded, organic-shaped, low tables and accessory seating in the form of the undulating wooden wave bench and the deep teal ottomans.
one corner displays a square, abstract painting commissioned from boulder’s own, will day. the neutral background allows the bright, engaging box shapes to stand out and enrich the room with color.
the opposite corner maintains a collection of quiet, intricate line drawings above the sofa.
the middle of the room is accented by a vintage, mirrored chest, striking against the clean, wood paneled wall. the chest displays a pair of mexican paper mache dolls.
two chrome and leather chairs are tucked into the window nook with a felt-topped wooden table and a cozy, sheepskin rug.
the entry, leading into the living room, has a long, felt runner with a bracelet design, hand made in iran by peace industry.
