Custom chaises, an eye candy console, and original art set the standard for this inviting before-dinner salon. Subtle use of inexpensive pieces such as a wicker table spray painted gold, import store accent tables, flokati rugs instead of Tibetan curly lamb, and inexpensive but stylish “sputnik” chandeliers create a stunning space for entertaining. The living room is an expansion of their entertaining space. For a couple who throws multiple parties throughout the year, this space gives them more than enough space to host groups from small to large, without losing comfort. Photography by Dan Piassic
