Asian Living Rooms
This room is a media, office and relaxation area all in one. A large, dual-purpose mirror acts as a strong decorative touch and enlarges the size of the room. The Thai-inspired design of the mirror frame forms a pattern of flowers from pieces of glass inlaid in mahogany. The Mid-century glass console table provides the perfect storage spot for gliding seats brought out for visiting gamers. The goal in this room was to combine existing English-styled furnishings with Asian artwork to create a comfortable home for a retired couple. This contemporary meditation space features a bronze waterfall sculpture, bronze tables and a mounted antique tortoiseshell as design elements to provide a serene, elegant area. Shoji screens create a feeling of unlimited space and light.
