Why We Love It


This is the epitome of modern living. Walls were knocked down in this Sunset living room to create the wide open spaces in this house, but slender metallic pillars offer a gentle demarcation of the living space. Furniture by mid-century design greats is right at home in this California remodel.

What Makes It Work

A pretty rug, this one a gorgeously colored silk and wool one from www.emmagardnerdesign.com, softens the effect of all the clean lines and hard surfaces.

Steal This Idea

Put an ottoman to work as a coffee table. With a tray on top, it can hold drinks and books. For large gatherings, you can remove the tray and have extra seating.
