This living room in Greenwich, Connecticut mixes the old and the new with classic shapes and updated fabrics. To provide the most efficient use of the space, the furniture is floated. Benches can be move to accommodate additional guests. The sisal rug does not compete for visual space in this small area, but blends in with the neutral palette. The blues pop with the taupe and cream backdrop, and add just enough color for the room to have interest but not to be overpowered.
