An adorable young couple came to us with the request to design their theater room. They love to entertain, play games, watch movies, and spend time together as a family. They loved the idea of creating a warm, cozy environment with a modern turn, and so did we; we knew the push-pull dynamic between the cozy and modern aesthetic was destined to create an interesting design.
Thom Filicia’s Niagara rug was the perfect beginning to our story. The lines are clean and modern, but its wool content keeps it cozy for the kids to snuggle when playing games or watching their favorite movie. We needed to seat loads of family and friends comfortably – we immediately thought of the simply tailored Keaton sectional. Once their guests sink into this little piece of down-filled heaven – they just may never want to leave! We hugged the sectional with a modern low console that doubles as a bookshelf – functional and so chic! We then generously sprinkled the room with lamps – the soft, moody lighting gives the room a warm and welcoming feeling.
What’s more fun and modern than a barrel swivel chair?! We knew it would surely become a favorite spot for the kids and just had to sneak one in the room! In order to keep the room from feeling too stiff, we loosened it up with art. We loved the simple, natural, grounded feeling of the black and white horses. It’s this dynamic, the pairing of modern and ease, that adds depth and dimension to the design – making it both interesting and fresh.
This style setting theater is bound inspire countless evenings at home, filled with family and friends, playing games, watching movies, and just enjoying one another. We hope it inspires you, too, so start popping the popcorn!
