This is my home theater. The pictures are terrible because I took them with my laptop, but you can get the idea.
We weren't using the children's playroom much anymore so a few years ago we converted it into a theater.
We knocked out the closet, replaced the single door with double doors, added hardwood floors, changed the lighting.... and this is what we ended up with.
Leather sofas, chaise and ottoman - Restoration Hardware (they don't have these exact pieces anymore but they are by Mitchell Gold so try there if you're looking for chesterfields. Mitchell Gold make a lot of furniture for both Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn, so it is a good place to look if you see something you like but maybe want it in a different fabric.)
Moss Ball in pot - Scotts Antique market
Leather tray on ottoman - Ethan Allen
Paint - Ralph Lauren Leather
The theater part only takes up half of the room, we also have a bathroom, table for games, fooze ball table etc.
My favorite part about the home theater is that the remote even controls our lighting. I just love to dim the lights as the movie starts, it makes me feel like a big-shot!

One of my goals this Spring is to give my study a bit of facelift. I am pretty happy with the room, but one of the things that I would like to replace is my reading chair.
I live in a very traditional home and am thinking about getting a chair and ottoman from Scully and Scully.
I like both the Richmond...
And the Taft...
Not sure which is my favorite! My decision might have to wait until our next trip to New York so that I can try them out in person.

I have always loved rent tables.
They look fabulous in a foyer, but wouldn't work in mine so I didn't think this was something I would own as long as I live in my present abode.
I have been trying to look around my home with fresh eyes as part of my Spring goal to refresh things and I realized that the table I have between my chair and sofa looks a little small.
I purchased a leather top Newport rent table from Ethan Allen and it works perfectly. The scale is much more suitable for the room that what was there before.
