Modern Georgian Interiors

Architecture by Morgante Wilson Architects

Wilmette, Illinois

The design intent of the open floor plan was to create a seamless relationship between the outdoor spaces and interior spaces. A multi-functional living room with seating views both the outdoor space and the fireplace and tv, which is hidden within the fireplace. The sectional and lounge chairs are by Christian Liaigre while the coffee table is a custom design created with walnut base and resin top.

Morgante Wilson designed the cabinets to create a symmetrical, grid-like pattern which relates to the interior transom windows above the cased openings and the interior/exterior windows located above the kitchen sink and throughout the house. The ribbon-shaped light fixture was selected to compliment the organic movement of the natural veining within the stone counter top.

Morgante Wilson designed a pool table area that included our clients record album covers mounted above a custom zinc-wrapped drink ledge and Lee Industries slip-covered counter stools. The media area was designed around an upside-down U-shape barn wood panels. The barn wood panel shown partially covering the album covers was designed to hide and allow access to the electrical panels located on the wall behind.

Morgante Wilson interiors sourced slipper chairs and ottoman by Michael Berman and upholstered in Cowtan & Tout and Schumacher velvet fabric.

Morgante Wilson selected oval mirrors that mount directly onto the window mullions to avoid covering as much of the windows as possible. We also selected a quiet, glass cylinder pendant to flank either side of the oval mirrors to provide a functional source of light without taking away from the natural light through the windows.
