The formal living room with its cream upholstery sofa and arm chairs is where we gather for cocktails before dinner, and to play board games around the coffee table seated on the floor. We usually advise the red wine drinkers to sit in the leather chairs, and once the beverages may have been flowing a tad too long – we tend to move to the dining table or another room. How that Knoll sofa [designed in 1954 by Florence Knoll – know as ‘Parallel Bar’] with its original textiles remained stain free. This space is forever changing – looking for the right mix of pillows + art + lighting + plants.
Here is a view of the room when we purchased the house.
