Formal chaises find a home in the lounge area, which is sectioned off by a sisal-style nylon rug. Picture windows shine a spotlight on a carefully edited collection of countertop accessories.
The eco-friendly upholstery fabric, in a happy shade of mandarin, modernizes the traditional silhouette of the chaise lounge chairs.
Adam and Viktoria pillows in cut velvet and linen, and zebra-print pillows provide a soft cushion and a quirky unexpected touch.
The lounge's focal-point print, Lord Turnbull's Ornithological Study of Red Bird, was originally purchased for the dining area. Interior designer Linda Woodrum placed the artwork in the lounge when she discovered how well it paired with the bright upholstery fabric.
A metal table is topped with a papier-mache lamp crafted by Stray Dog Designs.
A CaesarStone quartz countertop serves as the perch for a cast cement palm leaf and faux-wood planters that cradle palm plants. Storage space below includes two Kenmore appliances: a dual wine cabinet and a beverage cooler.
The metal table crafted by artist Ted Brown features a hand-applied patina.
Chunky, hand-knit bamboo–blend throws in a deep shade of chocolate truffle are placed at the end of each chaise should a chilly day require a soft cover.
