A custom coffee table, Milo Baughman reclining chairs discovered at a flea-market (and soon available at DWR) and Simpatico armchairs round out the seating in the Edelmans' living room. Dylan Landis writes, "Bonnie's husband, John Edelman, comes from a large family, so they wanted as much seating as possible in the living room."
One of the Edelmans' decorating techniques is to hang their vast photography collection salon-style on their walls. Bonnie Edelman explains that, "Your eye always goes to the lightest part of a photogrpah, and you want to balance it. With a room, it translates into something familiar: you want the balance. If you throw in an apple-green cushion, you want something green to support it, to give it weight, elsewhere in the room, so it doesn't look like it dropped in from the ceiling." The Edelmans display a mix of family photographs and pieces from their favorite galleries.
The Midas Collection adds a sparkly golden accent to the living room, playing off the furniture's rich leather hues.
