Silver and gold are perfect colors for decking out your pad for a New Year's Eve party, and you can continue the theme into 2009 by creating a sitting area that echoes those glam metallics.
For my silver seating area, I relied on white and plum tones to offset the blingy silver. The look of this sitting area is refined, feminine, and warm, even though the colors are cool. My favorite piece, by far, is the Timber Table ($235), whose faux bois pattern looks surprisingly fresh when it's interpreted in lucite.

The more masculine look of this sitting area is due to the rich chocolate browns. The Leucos Stacking C Floor Lamp ($236), is a truly crave worthy piece, with stacked blown glass cylinders assembled to create a luminous centerpiece for your sitting area.
