Sitting Area

Our Momeni New Wave Rug is super soft, 100% hand-tufted wool. It pulls together many elements from Art Deco and Abstract Expressionism. The muted reds are a nice accent, also present in our reproduction of Tamara de Lempika's La Bella Rafaela.
When we saw this painting at an Art Deco exhibit while on our honeymoon in San Francisco, we knew we wanted to have a reproduction in our home.

With our deep brown leather club chair and sofa, the sitting area has been nicknamed the Cub Room in homage to the famous scene in "All About Eve." All that's missing is the cigarette smoke, but we will have to live without that!
