Modern Living Room

Using the city as the backdrop for the contemporary living room, designer Tara Benet fills the space with low, streamlined furniture. A petrified wood stump is a cool, natural side table, while pillows in zigzag fabrics add visual texture to the space.

Simple and Neutral

A chunky dining room table is paired with sleek white chairs and a low, modern buffet. A trio of trumpet-shaped light pendants are an unexpected, cool design element, while tall orchids on top of the buffet add height to the room. An abstract painting brings a splash of color to the neutral palette.

Contemporary Office

The custom desk features a reclaimed wooden top and Plexiglas legs, creating the illusion of a floating desk. Bright accents, like the area rug, bring a vibrant, creative touch to the home office.

Cool and Urban

The modern felt-covered rocking chair is a comfy yet statement-making furniture piece. Tall shelves provide storage without taking up too much space in the small home office.
