Traditional Home Magazine featuring Libby Langdon Upholstery

For designer Libby Langdon, the goal of the fun room was “to create a relaxed retreat reminiscent of an English club room with a modern, sexy twist,” she says. “I wanted it to be an inviting space as ideal for cocktails and billiards with friends as it is for quiet moments reading a good book.” At almost 1,200 square feet, the room’s plan was a challenge.  To humanize the space, Langdon used multiple seating and gathering areas and delineated the spaces with sculptural light fixtures and creative furniture placement. Noteworthy accessories –antique boat replicas, globes, maps and old books from English Country antiques – entice interest. “I wanted to visually draw you into the space,” says Langdon. “I thought of the homeowner as a world traveler who loved collecting lots of beautiful objects. They truly become a focal point of the space.”
