Midwestern Modern

Posted on September 7, 2020

The Midwestern Modern residence was designed for the couple that adores entertaining. The clients requested a glamorous, travel-centric vibe rich in refreshing color; an energetic space spilling intensity.

Found throughout are authentic, handmade Moroccan accents, Spanish paintings, and European antiques. About the house are African-print furnishings, hand-upholstered and crafted by David himself.

In the sitting room stands a limestone fireplace flanked by French mirrors. Vine-wrapped medallions pattern the Italian armchairs—recovered by David—that face the hearth’s finery. Ivory and black sofas speak to the zebra-print chairs in the dining room.

The dining room is a cultural nexus: a Moroccan chandelier glitters, its blown glass swags creating an ombre rainbow. Antique Ralph Lauren velvet-silk chairs wreath David’s own handmade dining table. A Russian rug sprawls below it all.

Mounted above the bed, radiating strength, an ancient Japanese painted screen gazes from behind archival glass. Fluffy rugs ring a lush bed with a custom-made, hand-upholstered frame fashioned to fit perfectly below. Bespoke drapes draw the room together.
