Before: Empty Space
The 1923 Georgian Revival living room features beautiful architecture that the homeowners want to highlight, as well as create a comfy, modern space for entertaining.
After: Made for Entertaining
The homeowners needed tons of seating for entertaining large groups. Designer J Allen provides plenty of seating with long, streamlined couches that don't clutter the space. Two sets of nesting tables add extra surface area for parties, but can also be stored away when not needed.
Warm Sitting Area
Two curved chairs placed next to the fireplace create an intimate seating area in the formal living room. A square golden mirror adds a touch of glam over the mantel.
Two small benches flank the door, adding a few extra seats. A collection of glass dishes hang on the wall, creating a cool, abstract art piece.
The formal living room combines modern furnishings with the classic architectural details. Even with the mix of different furniture, Allen keeps everything low to allow for an open, flowing environment.
