15 May A Closer Look at Shawn Hingley’s Midcentury Living Room Makeover!
It’s no secret how much we’re IN LOVE with Shawn Hingley’s home! If you missed it, earlier this week we shared the before & after photos of his midcentury makeover (see the full post here!), and we’re absolutely smitten!
Today, we’d like to dive a little deeper into this living room! When Shawn came to us, he had the major parts of the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom design completely figured out. We had the opportunity to come in at the end and do what we love doing, decorate!
Of course, knowing Shawn’s love for everything Midcentury Modern, we knew straight away the bulk of his new furniture had to be Gus* Modern! He already had an extensive collection of MCM furniture so the pieces we chose had to compliment what he already owned.
Aside from decorating in the living room, we had the opportunity to design a fireplace/TV combo feature wall. We opted to paint the wall Benjamin Moore Hale Navy HC-154, positioned the TV to be right justified above Shawn’s MCM media stand, incorporated chopped wood, and designed the mantle in such a way that Shawn could display his killer Pearl Jam album art!
Inspired by the work of the Sarasota School of Architecture, the Truss is a mid-century styled chair that features a solid, natural Ash frame and finger joint detailing on the arms. At home in both modern and traditional spaces, this chair brings an appealing, laid-back style to any space. Available in 5 fabrics.
A modern update to the classic Gus* Modern Jane Series, the Jane 2 Bi-Sectional retains the iconic, mid-century look while adding contemporary enhancements. It has been cleverly designed so that it can be configured with the chaise on the left OR the right, depending on your floorplan. If your needs change, simply move the chaise and readjust the cushions to convert the design. Piped upholstery edges and button-tufted cushions create photogenic surface details that are enhanced by Jane 2’s new, more refined proportions. A new wood base (available in light or dark wood finish) is inset on each piece, creating a sense of weightlessness that maximizes light and space. The frames are constructed with kiln-dried 100% FSC®-Certified hardwood in support of responsible forest management.
The Quarry Coffee Table and End Table are minimalist takes on casual sophistication, designed to showcase the beauty of natural marble and wood grain. The thick marble top has rounded corners to soften the look, and a solid-wood cross base reinforces this aesthetic with rounded edges and elegant joinery details. Available in a choice of four colours, each marble top has unique, natural veining which make each table a one-of-a-kind. The Quarry Tables can be displayed alone, or mixed together. Match the tops or mix and match like we did for Shawn’s Living Room.
Gus* Modern Halifax Chair
The Halifax Chair is a contemporary accent chair with a laid-back, industrial feel. Faceted upholstery panels rest on a precision welded, powder-coated steel frame. Walnut-finished paddle armrests help soften the strong lines of this unique design. Upholstered panels use FSC®-Certified wood products in support of responsible forest management.
