This single bachelor in Roscoe Village asked us to redesign his master bedroom and master bathroom a few years ago. Recently, he asked us back for an encore to redesign his living and dining room space.
What we wanted to do with the living room space was to design him a space that was sophisticated but not boring while adding a larger dining room table to accommodate friends for dinner parties. The new space consists of a sofa in an earth-tone fabric with two matching wing-backed leather chairs. The coffee table offers ample storage for remotes, while allowing some space to keep magazines easily accessible. We also selected a large entertainment stand with frosted glass doors to help hide the receiver, Blu-Ray player and game consoles. Dramatic artwork, accent lighting and accessories tie the space together without cluttering the space.
In the dining room, we added a larger table that can easily expand to accommodate dinner party guests. The larger chandelier has a linen fabric shade with frosted diffuser and was installed on a dimmer switch to allow the owner to appropriately set the lighting level.
We at Design Inside are thrilled with how the space came together and were excited to see it featured in a recent issue of the Chicago RedEye daily reader.
