LC Studio’s “Midnight Lounge”
In the family room, dramatic bay windows practically begged for a banquette nestled beneath. From there, Lance Scott and Cecily Waud, the design team behind LC Studio, envisioned a moody cocktail lounge that would serve as the home’s central hub for entertaining. Like a coveted booth at a marquee club, a midnight-navy velvet banquette holds court along the window, with playful mushroom drinks tables from Maison Gerard accentuating the space’s party-ready look. To control the cavernous feel of the 15-foot coffered ceiling, the team applied a complementary navy lacquer (Benjamin Moore’s Old Navy); as the shade descends the walls, it fades into a pale gray.
A central seating area is positioned around a commanding limestone Strike mantel. “It’s a nod to traditional old limestone fireplaces, but this one is elevated and modern,” says Scott. A pair of Donzella chairs invite intimate fireside conversation and can pivot to face the Perennials-clad L-shaped sofa and cerulean suede Mous wood-frame chairs, all set on an amorphous Tai Ping rug. Beside the fireplace, the duo transformed a former AV cabinet into a built-in bar with an eglomise backsplash, lavender resin shelves, and an antique cabinet.
