Utterly 21st Century in technology, there's a touch of retro to this media room's ambiance. An oversized poster above the screen recalls the birth of sci-fi movies during Hollywood's early heyday. Two-toned cushions with matched valance in an abstraction of leopard spots harken back to the days of pillbox hats and Jackie Kennedy sheath dresses, a time when ceiling fans were de rigueur for keeping cool. Dimmable wall sconces complete the illusion of an old time theatre.
Ah, Manhattan in the 1920s. The sensual curves of art nouveau glass and ceiling, the decadence of fine wines enjoyed from the depths of plush sofas, the erotic sense of discovering a secluded -- hideaway complete with faux-brick wall panel -- beneath the very heart of the city. All this combined with high definition television and the latest in audio control.
Zen meets Mission in this urban media room. The delicate leaves of two full-height bamboo plants form a visual counterpoint to the square motif repeated in a pair of decorative wall hangings, sectional sofa, coffee table, and armchair back. Richly textured and patterned throw cushions balance the sleek gloss of a white marble mantle with metallic accents. This is a space for relaxing with or without a movie.
