When I came upon this chandelier on etsy, I was immediately inspired to design a living room around it. This chandelier evokes The European Modern feel that we, at Gwinn Road, love to design. The raw brass provides warmth mixed with the coolness of the metal cone shaped shades. The asymmetrical placement of the shades suggests a slight playfulness. All in all it is perfect!
The first thought was the room had to have a vintage rug. The age of the rug will juxtapose beautifully with the modern vibe of the light fixture.
The wool turkish rug has a neutral tone that brings texture to the room. The rug has a pattern that isn’t too busy, which I like because it will allow the chandelier to be the statement piece in the room.
I can’t describe how much I love the tone of the mink sofa. Oh what a beauty!! Combining two shearling covered accent chairs and a chaise creates both a luxurious and inviting feel. The rustic oak coffee table is vintage and is just right to bring balance to the lux furnishings. The merlot marble table placed between the shearling chairs will bring color balance to the richness of the sofa. Place the modern floor lamp and a vintage french stool by the chaise. I want nothing more than to curl up on that chaise with some snacks and a good book.
Let’s bring in a few layers to pull the room together. On the coffee table place a favorite candle on a tray, some inspiring coffee table books and a pretty vessel. I think one large lumbar would be perfect on the sofa. Add a throw to the chaise and the room comes together in our European Modern style that we love.
