A Sip of Jasmine

February 2011  | 
In northern China it is customary to serve Jasmine tea as a welcoming gesture to guests. Appropriately, our living room collection is named after this delicate flower for its symbolism of warmth and hospitality.

The moment you enter this room, you are welcomed by all the warm, reddish neutrals from the walls to the floor.  The space also seems open and airy because of the white upholstery pieces as well as the glass tabletops of the coffee table and end tables. Matted in white and framed in black, subtle and simple drawings of foliage are hung neatly on the plain “Kangaroo Tan” wall.

In the back of the room is a black and white screen, which creates texture and a balanced asymmetry in the room.  Also, the smooth texture of the leather upholstery is complimented by a “Ruby Ring” red shag floor rug.  All the main furniture pieces are positioned towards the center of the room, creating a perfect place to gather and socialize.
Complete this living room with a complimentary coffee table and end tables, decorated with red and white accessories.  Also a simple TV console is the perfect media storage solution.
