Modern eclecticism, hold the camp

This is architect Curtis Popp's living room and kitchen in an apartment he designed for his dad. I think it's a well nigh perfect example of how to be warm yet modern and interesting without being cluttered.

These images are from a spread in Dwell. The living room I'm imagining for myself looks remarkably like this. I see Le Corbusier chairs, an Arco lamp and are they Philippe Starck barstools? Design classics yet this room looks nothing like a museum. Bravo.


  1. Spooky -- I want my planned family room to have a big Persian rug and black leather seating, but I hadn't seen anything quite like it... this is pretty close.

  2. Spooky indeed. It's as if that architect peered right into my mind's eye. Now it seems he did it twice.


Talk to me!
