The space dedicated to this cozy conversation center was defined by the shaggy beige rug laid on the wideboard pegged wooden floor.
The modern built-in sofa units, which could be arranged to suit the space, were set on dark-stained wood frames, creating the look of a conversation pit.
End tables and magazine rack were part of the sofa units. The large coffee table was a richly-colored slab of rosewood that had been mounted on slim metal legs.
Two sofas — one large and one small — and open-arm chairs that could be pulled up to the group made this a fine arrangement for entertaining.
A serene mood was established by the earthy, monochromatic color scheme and by the discreet use of pattern and texture.
There was a slightly ridged material on the sofas, a scroll border on the rug, and white-on-white panels in the curtains. The only accent colors were a few shades of green.
