The media room in a Boston townhouse decorated by design firm Wells & Fox features three paintings by Mark Bradford and a work by Mark Grotjahn. The light fixture is by David Weeks Studio, the custom-made sectional sofa is clad in a Holland & Sherry wool, and the reproduction Illum Wikkelsø lounge chair by Lost City Arts is upholstered in a Jim Thompson linen blend.
Probably the only thing I might change if I had total control is I tend more towards warm grays than cool. Our walls, which are Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray, are my favorite – light gray with some warm tones – and our kitchen cabinets are a darker warm gray. The gray blue of the sectional really is beautiful (and actually complements our marble in the kitchen really well). I think it will be a very forgiving color: light enough to help the room feel bright (remember one of my goals?), but dark enough to hide the inevitable grime of young kids.
There's nothing worse than hosting a movie night or cocktail party without enough seating. One guest ends up in a dining chair at the edge of the fray while another is relegated to the floor. Thankfully, there's the design wonder that is the sectional sofa. The L-shaped seating can typically be configured to be as big or small as you like, ensuring there's room for everyone—and then some.
Lightweight and compact: A small room needs something compact and lightweight to make it does not look overwhelm. Putting glass as the finishing or the top surface of table will create a nice impression. Besides; the piece of furniture should be fit in as limited space as possible.
