The cow hide was selected after going through 100+ skins to find the perfect one for the space. This one was selected as the black matched the chairs and the brown hints in the center reflected the brown in the laminate flooring. The sheen of the fur brought out the metallic finish in the tiled fireplace wall.
Lots of texture was used to style the space with faux fur, velvet and shag in the soft furnishings, while we used pewter in the hard furnishings like the vase and and magnifying glass to match the sconces, fireplace bezel, pot light trim and bar foot rail. The exquisite mother of pearl tray was the perfect accessory to style the ottoman and hold an assortment of silk peonies.
In keeping with the Glam Modern look of the basement the three zones were styled in very unique ways giving each zone its own identity. The Media Zone was styled to keep it light and bright with accents of white, and touches of faux fur, velvet and shag rug. The Fireplace Zone was styled to elicit a moody, cozy feeling with dark colors in the Barcelona chairs and the black cow hide rug. The Custom bar in the room was flamboyant hence we kept the other two zones calm and serene.
