37 Living Room Two Sided Fireplace Sofa Chair Design Photos And Ideas

After discovering their client's love for the ritual of making campfires, the team behind Scott | Edward Architecture created a double-sided, concrete fireplace, which essentially separates the public and private spaces of the home.
Interior spaces, such as the main living area, deliberately frame exterior views. Per the architects: "Thus, the beautiful oak trees on the opposite side of the creek are still 'belonging' to this house by the use of a technique called shakkei or borrowed scenery—to expand limits visually."
On the other side of the Cor-Ten fireplace is the living room. The custom Augustin sectional and the cocktail table are from Christian Liaigre, and paired with Ib Kofod-Larsen's Seal chair and ottoman.
Here is a peek of the living area. There is an additional sitting area just around the corner.

Scott set the windows into deep recesses.
