Elegant Living Room

The living room's extra-tall fireplace is a showstopper.Interior designer Christie Hansen designed the living room's slender matching coffee tables — which can be pushed together as one — to ease movement through the space; they're also easier to reach from the sofas. Architect Jim Pearson took his inspiration for the 22-foot reclaimed barnboard ceiling from old Ontario barns. Its rustic beams are a fitting counterpoint to the elegant furniture.
