Inspired by the architecture, we keep the furnishings streamlined, simple, and sophisticated.  Local artist Stephanie Nance‘s Lucha Libre No.1 and Lucha Libre No.2 take center stage above the sofa from Five Elements Furniture.  A superfun ottoman from Iron Thread Design features hairpin legs, eco-friendly upholstery, and tufting with mismatched buttons.  The tactile peacock blue rug grounds the seating area and compels you to wiggle your toes in the shag!

Who could possibly face off against Nance’s luchadors?  Paco’s Super Amigos, of course.

The view of the living room includes this mid-century record cabinet and an amazing tribute to a local landmark–Shady Grove 8, by Art on 5th‘s Paul Stankiewicz.

A complimentary lamp and ceramic bowl feature a similar palette and texture to Stankiewicz’ piece.
