Eclectic, Contemporary Living Room with Eastern-Style Design

The Double Take team recreates a $138,000 eclectic living room for less than $2,200.

  • This couple wants a living room that incorporates both their styles.
  • There are many design styles going on in this room, but none of them compete.
  • The overall feel of the inspiration room is replicated for the couple at a fraction of the cost.
  • An ugly yellow dresser is transformed into a unique sideboard.
  • A fireplace screen is built to mimic a console table.
  • The camel-colored passion suede sofa has the same wooden feet and curved arms as the original.
  • This one-of-a-kind mosaic is made from colored art paper.
  • Chairs found at an antique mall are very similar to the neoclassical side chairs in the inspiration room.
  • A used coffee table and its modern-style lines are perfect in this living room.
  • This mirror cost has the Far-East flair the couple liked about the original.
