Design Board: Gallery Living Room

What type of living space does a minimalist, eclectic art collector require as a backdrop for her pieces? Curvilinear shapes realized in crisp black and chalky white, the perfect frames for a revolving, ever-expanding art obsession.

A modern-yet-comfortable, low-slung sofa in the darkest velvet grounds the space and encourages lingering.

Conversation will flow with guests seated in these sculptural Attribution armchairs whose curves deserve their own appreciation.

Extra seating/footstools/installation pieces feature white linen seats and stacked forms that flow perfectly with the other furnishings.

Chalk-toned concrete offers a full circle of arches with this round coffee table, reinforcing form and texture here, as well as being extremely practical for use.

Pulling all the furnishings together is a wild dotty wool rug, which adds a layer of pattern and interest and repeats our circular shapes used through the room.

Stunning chrome floor lamps add a little sparkle, the unusual scale reflects the playful nature of the home owners approach to decorating their space.

Joining the gathering are the spectacular Totem sculptures by Rueben Karol. The bare wood and artisan nature of these works contrast very well against the polished living room, and add warmth here.

Of course, at the centre of all things fabulous, an equally fabulous plexiglass and brass chandelier by Vibeke Fonnesberg Schmidt – an organic grouping of organic forms. The influx of color invites you into the space, and encourages you toward the centre of the grouping.
