Throughout most of the living room, the ceiling is a standard nine feet high, but at the back, it's 20 feet with grand floor-to-ceiling windows.
Designer Laura Stein needed to find furniture for the living room that wasn't too small for the high-ceilinged section or too large for the low one. "I had most of the pieces custom made," she says.
"The room is sophisticated yet warm: It's a playful juxtaposition of contemporary and classic style with curved and rectlinear forms," says Laura. "For instance, some of the furnishings are modern and clean-lined but reference traditional shapes and details."
