Modern-traditional mix: Persian carpet + Knoll Barcelona stools, from Elle Decor
Another view of Lisa Pomerantz's Chelsea apartment, designed by Peter Pawlak (apologies for the poor scan). I love how he mixes modern pieces with more traditional elements -- and I'm always a sucker for Barcelona stools.
Sofa by Peter Pawlak Design Studio, crafted by The Furniture Joint, and upholstered in Mohair Supreme (#451801-129) by Maharam. Barcelona stools by Knoll upholstered in Camelot Wool by Donghia.
