The Family Room
In this 2-story volume family room, it’s the subtle design features that make it special. Natural light pours into the room through a stunning display of floor-to-ceiling bifold retractable doors. The LaCantina Bifold doors create a seamless transition from the family room to the lanai, bringing the outdoors indoors.
In the middle of the room stands a cocktail table with a thick walnut top and brushed steel legs that is styled with stacks of architectural design books and greenery. Can’t forget the greenery!
Facing the foyer are two high-back swivel chairs upholstered in tumbled linen that are paired with a small, drink table. When the retractable doors are opened to enjoy the lake breeze, a set of lounge chairs upholstered in natural hide and framed with wood and aluminum detail take in the impressive view.
The area rug is an exceptional characteristic of the space; hand knotted and hand woven with wool. This handcrafted area rug covers a floor that is made up of 16 x 24 natural, brushed limestone.
An intricate wall paneling design frames the focal point of the room: the fireplace. The fireplace makes a statement that is altogether functional yet cozy yet sleek.
In the elegant foyer of the family room, pristine chandeliers dangle from above that are as alluring as they are mysterious.
Each glass tube is purposely imperfect, frosted opal toward the top before asymmetrically giving way to perfect clarity toward the base. The chandeliers add a 21st-century touch to a Modernist classic.
Complementing the sleekness of the fireplace are the spacious built-ins that are filled with birch logs. I love how much texture the natural wood brings to the space.
Don’t forget to look up! Not only will you see a stunning ceiling design of wooden beams, but also a peculiar display of light fixtures.
Overhanging the room is not one, not two… but three circular light fixtures that vary in diameter. The largest being 72”.
One of my favorite ways to style a coffee table is with books! Specifically, hardcover architectural and interior design books. Stack and space them out evenly to create organized layers of interest.
