This room was a blank slate. The fireplace wall was originally covered in faux stone and the whole thing needed to be ripped out. A new fireplace, mantle and built-in bookcases replaced it. The clients wanted a chic, lounge-like feel to the room. This was achieved through the use of luxurious, rich fabrics combined with a weighty Lucite table and contemporary fireplace featuring a stainless steel surround. The edgy, industrial quality of the chandelier is played off against the ceiling, which is covered in a brown and silver metallic wallpaper. The effect is stunning.
