Description from JHID:

A white sectional leather sofa defines the living room area and is architectural in feeling, echoing the white walls that surround it.  A buffalo-hide rug and a vintage chair give texture and warmth to the otherwise cool palette.

The dining table is a thirteen-foot-long, five-inch-thick slab of reclaimed acacia wood, with a natural woven chandelier that is similar in color and feeling to the Hans Wegner wishbone chairs that surround the table.  The abstract paintings, a series entitled ‘Momentum,’ are vermillion ink on pale grey vellum by Portland artist Heather Watkins.

The den offers a counterpart to the open and airy great room.  It is dark, cozy and comfortable with a plush silk-velvet sofa and curtains all in the same shade of deep grey as the walls.  The art piece in the den was designed by JHID designer Emily Knudsen and screen-printed here in Portland. It includes dates, initials, and places of significance  to the clients.
