low, brown sofa in corner

Dramatic Pause

A long, low sofa covered in faux suede invites guests to linger. Bryan found the sofa at a thrift store, had it recovered, and placed it on an angle in the large square parlor.

He divided the room into quadrants (each one is focused on a corner), giving it easy flow and multiple seating arrangements. The low ceiling and brick floor speak of the space’s origins as a carriage house.
