Modern Capital’s Den Makeover

Being in the house since Friday except for a brief escape on Tuesday, my wife and I have been spending a lot of time in our den catching up on episodes of “Mad Men.” After several years, the space is finally at a point that I can show here as I have promised in the past. We still need to paint or change out the the brass-colored fireplace screen and want to add some greenery to the mix. From the “before” picture below taken soon after we moved in, you can see the wonderful ceiling fan/light, the berber carpet and our our mid-’90s Storehouse furniture (Umm, what were we thinking?)

Now for some plugs: Vintage Saarinen chairs are from Moderniucs, new Saarinen table is from DWR, Gus Modern Jane sofa is from RCKNDY, Knoll side-table is from Galaxie Modern and the Nelson lamp is from Modernica. I picked up the mid-century skyline print at an estate sale for $20. While we are working to rid ourselves of our Ikea furniture now that we are getting old, I have to admit that the TV stand, pillows and rug are from the College Park location.

If any Modern Capital readers have makeover’s they would like to share, e-mail me at [email protected].
