Current Project: Chillax Basement

I was recently asked to put together some ideas for a newly-remodeled basement lounge area. The homeowners have created a space that their teenage children refer to as the "Chillax" room, a space where one can "chill-out" with friends and "relax", escaping the stress of life as a teen. The kids wanted to create a "modern" vibe, with sleek textures, clean lines, and minimal ornamentation. The existing charcoal gray sectional and flat screen TV are the anchors in the room.

To warm up the aesthetic a bit, I've suggested adding some more natural elements (like the off-white cowhide area rug, the driftwood sculpture, leather cocktail ottoman, etc.) To add function for light dining and a work surface for games and/or school projects, we opted for a pub-height table in the snack area to create a more swanky, lounge type feel. The second idea board below offers alternative dining and occasional pieces surrounding the same anchored gray sectional.

So....Yes, Harvest can do eco-modern too!
Do you have a favorite among the two schemes?
